Make your stainless steel sparkle

Maintaining the luster of stainless steel appliances and keeping them smudge-free is a constant chore. The British company EnviroProducts, who makes a variety of high-tech microfiber cloths for specific tasks, called e-clothes, formulates one for stainless steel. To clean an appliance, simply add water. A two-pack ($14.99) includes a dual-sided e-cloth to lift grime and fingerprints from brushed or polished stainless, plus a jagged-edge buffing cloth to finish the job. Both can go into the washing machine. It’s a greener, cleaner way to make the fridge, stovetop, or toaster sparkle.
