Have Super Looking Stainless Steel Appliances!

Ahhhh, stainless steel.  You look marvelous.

However, scratch up stainless steel, and your cool-looking appliance will quickly look much cheaper.

What's the best way to clean stainless steel?

Although Martha Stewart says, "Try Windex,"  we beg to differ. Online comments frequently say that Windex tends to leave streaks on your SS.  Oil-based products also tend to build-up on SS surfaces.

One cleaner does have a squeaky-clean reputation among scores of stainless steel enthusiasts: BarKeeper's Friend.

To use it, simply apply this cleanser onto a clean, damp rag and wipe along the stainless steel grain.  Then use another towel to remove the residue.

One online commenter said, "a metal cleaner/polish like Barkeeper's Friend made all the streaks, smudges, fingerprints disappear."  Another said, "It looked even better than when it was new."

Say Goo-Bye To That White Stuff On Your Dishes and Glasses

You've seen it before -- white film left on your glasses and dishes.

So, what do you do?  You re-wash them, right?  Only to find...the same result.

Is your dishwasher be dying?  Are hard water ogres now invading your home?  Did someone at home put something in your dishwasher to make it so "filmy"?

Um...probably not.  Instead, do this:

Add some LemiShine in your dishwasher.

It's thought that LemiShine is made of citric acid hemihydrate -- dehydrated, concentrated citric acid. But does it do the trick?  Seems like it -- LemiShine has a 5 out of 5 star rating (among 30 ratings at the time of this post) on WalMart's website, and 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

Want a free sample?  Come get one!  Visit our store at 609 N Orchard, Boise and we'll give you one, or go here to find a store near you.

You -- and your dishes and glasses -- will be thrilled with the results!

Get Super Clean Smooth Stove Tops...Everytime!

It's the LAST thing your glossy, glass smooth-top stove needs: an abrasive cleansers.

They're everywhere!  While it's true that they're a godsend when used on the right stuff, smooth-top stoves aren't one of them.

They'll leave scratches.  Bad ones.

Here's a better idea:

  • Prepare: Apply warm water and 1 tsp. dish soap to a paper towel or non-abrasive scrubbing sponge.
  • Remove the big stuff: Wipe the stove top with the damp paper towel or sponge to remove any loose food or residue, then rinse with a wet, clean paper towel.
  • Clean: Apply a dime-sized amount of cooktop cleaner to another damp paper towel, then clean the stovetop.
  • Rinse: Dampen a paper towel and wipe over the stove top to rinse the excess cleaning cream.
  • Dry: the stove top with a paper towel.
