stainless refrigeratorWhen it comes to your Commercial Refrigeration near Ballwin MO, did you know that keeping the outside clean, you can go the natural approach, even with stainless steel?  That’s right.  “Naturally clean. For a DIY approach to cleaning using pantry items, the sustainable-living team at Eartheasy advises dampening a cloth with undiluted white vinegar or olive oil and wiping in the direction of the grain.”  Some other options for naturally cleaning your stainless steel commercial refrigeration and other restaurant equipment, are as follows:  Diluted vinegar (for cleaning limescale),Baking soda (to remove coffee deposits) Alcoholic solvents, such as acetone (for removing adhesives), Chloride-free glass sprays (especially efficient for polished, mirror-like surfaces).  You can also use specific pastes and sprays that may or may not be all natural, but make sure they don’t have chloride in them.

Why no chloride?  Well, this is a simple answer and it involves the not-so-stainless concept of stainless steel.  You see, if the first line of defense on your stainless steel refrigeration is breeched, which is a protective coating of sorts, then it can and will be subject to rust underneath.  For the above reason, it is also suggested that you do not clean with anything abrasive at all, no steel scrubs especially.  Also, make sure you are wiping with the grain as opposed to against it, according to your St Louis Refrigeration Maintenance near Ballwin MO.

Polishing is a great idea for a little added protection for your stainless steel commercial refrigeration as well.  “Shine on. Spray cleansers made specifically for cleaning decorative stainless steel surfaces usually contain silicone oil, and although they will remove fingerprints and smudges, they will not prevent them. The ESDA says the silicone oil can be completely removed by washing with mild soap and water.” Polishing past is another favorite in commercial kitchens to help maintain that shine on your commercial refrigeration products.
