Make your stainless steel shine!

What You Need

Vinegar (in a spray bottle works best)
Paper towels (optional)
Very soft or microfiber cloth
Mineral Oil (or other oil such as olive oil)


  1. Gather your supplies and determine the direction of the grain: We normally use the term "grain" for wood; however, stainless steel also has a grain. Look closely. It will either be running horizontally or vertically. To clean your stainless steel, rub in the direction of that grain.
  2. Pre-clean your appliance with vinegar: Spray your appliance with vinegar. Use either a paper towel or a very soft cloth to wipe the vinegar off in the direction of the grain. This should remove the surface dirt from your appliance and start to shine it a bit.
Use oil to make it shine: Dip your soft cloth into a little bit of oil. Start with a small amount and add more as needed. Now, polish your appliance with your oiled-up cloth in the direction of the grain. You will start to see any marks disappear! Now you have a shiny new appliance again!

Chest Freezer Organization

Having a chest freezer can be a huge help when you have a big family or just get a good deal on your favorite foods. However keeping your chest freezer organized can be a bit difficult. Here are five tips to help your chest freezer stay organized and all of your foods easily accessible.

Tip #1

Keep an inventory.  This keeps you from over purchasing one type of food.

Tip #2

Use reusable shopping bags to keep like food together. Sturdy plastic bins work well also but run the risk of becoming brittle with time.

Tip #3

Freeze your foods flat in gallon sized, freezer safe Ziploc bags. This makes it easy to stack and organize foods either horizontally or vertically.

Tip #4

Clearly label all food with the expiration dates. Painters tape and a sharpie can help with those store bought items that have small or hard to find expiration dates.

Tip #5

Clean out your freezer quarterly and dispose of expired items.

These tips should help you to get the most out of your chest freezer.
