Before we dive in let’s look at some fun facts about refrigerators

The top of a refrigerator is one of the most common places for people to hide things, such as spare keys or money. Now I'm not saying you should carry what is not yours but if you need money for rice and beans check there.

Some people believe that putting a penny on a shelf in the refrigerator can help keep food fresh longer. Probably a myth but it’s worth trying with our kobo

Now let’s dive in to the main Topic

  1. Clean the surface: Before attempting to remove scratches, it's important to clean the surface of your fridge. Use a soft cloth and a mixture of warm water and mild soap to wipe away any dirt or grime. Be sure to dry the surface thoroughly.
  2. Assess the scratch: Depending on the depth and severity of the scratch, you may need to use different methods to remove it. If the scratch is minor and only on the surface, you may be able to buff it out with a polishing cloth. However, deeper scratches may require a more intensive approach.
  3. Use a scratch remover: If the scratches are minor and only on the surface, you may be able to buff them out with a polishing cloth. However, deeper scratches may require a more intensive approach. There are several products on the market designed specifically for removing scratches from stainless steel surfaces. These products usually come in the form of a cream or liquid that you apply to the scratch and then buff with a soft cloth. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and test the product on a small, inconspicuous area of your fridge before using it on a larger scratch.
  4. Try a DIY approach: If you prefer to use natural or household items to remove scratches, you can try using a mixture of baking soda and water. Make a paste with equal parts baking soda and water and apply it to the scratch. Gently rub the paste into the scratch with a soft cloth, using circular motions. Wipe away the paste with a clean cloth and assess the scratch. You may need to repeat the process several times for deeper scratches.
  5. Prevent future scratches: Once you have removed the scratches from your stainless steel refrigerator, take steps to prevent future scratches. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scrubbers on the surface, and be careful when moving items around the fridge. You can also invest in a protective cover for your fridge to help prevent scratches.
