We love incorporating all natural products into our lifestyle! Previously we used to a stainless steel polish from the store. However, store bought stainless steel cleaners had harsh chemicals and smelled really unpleasant. I really didn’t want my kids breathing it in, plus it was really pricey. A polish really is necessary though to keep your stainless steel fingerprint free and shiny. I grew up polishing my wood with olive oil so I thought it would work just as well on our stainless steel appliances. I created this easy to make homemade stainless steel cleaner polish recipe and I am so happy with the shiny smudge free results.
Easy Homemade Stainless Steel Cleaner Polish Recipe
Homemade Stainless Steel Cleaner Supplies Needed:
- 8 oz Glass Spray Bottle
- Olive Oil
- Young Lemon Essential Oil
- Young Living Citrus Fresh Essential Oil
How To Make DIY Stainless Steel Cleaner Polish:
This is a very easy homemade cleaner recipe to put together! First start with your glass bottle and olive oil. Glass is better than plastic because it doesn’t react with essential oils. You can use an old empty bottle or order on amazon (affiliate link).
Add 8 oz of olive oil into your bottle. Next add 5 drops of your Young Living Lemon Essential Oil and 5 drops of your Young Living Citrus Fresh Essential Oil. Adding these 2 citrus oils make your polish smell fabulous but they also have antibacterial, antiviral and astringent properties making them perfect essential oils to add to this polish and keep your appliances germ free.
Once all the ingredients are added, give your homemade stainless steal cleaner polish a good shake. Spray a small amount evenly over your stainless steel surface. Then use a microfiber cloth to just wipe away streaks, smudges, and fingerprints!
Having your homemade stainless steel cleaner polish in a spray bottle just adds convenience when using your polish. After spraying on your polish, use a dry cloth (I usually grab an old t-shirt from one of my kiddos’ drawers!) and buff into your stainless steel. The olive oil and essential oils will leave your appliances fresh, shiny and streak free! Try this out next time you do a deep clean!
