How to Clean Magnet Marks From Stainless Steel
Used on a variety of surfaces including appliances and countertops, stainless steel is durable but not immune to dust, dirt and grime. Even magnets can leave a mark on stainless-steel refrigerators, appliances and other surfaces. Dust and dirt collects under and around magnets, then, in turn, on the stainless-steel surface. To remove the buildup, use a substance that won't damage your stainless steel.
Remove any magnets present on the stainless steel surface, if you haven't done so already.
Wipe the stainless steel surface lightly with a soft, non-abrasive cloth or rag to remove any loose dust and dirt from the surface.
Apply 2 tbsp. of a stainless-steel cleaner/polish or a concentrated cleaner designed for stainless steel to a soft, non-abrasive cloth or rag. Wear latex gloves to keep your hands dry.
Rub the magnet mark(s) lightly using the cleaner-soaked cloth or rag in the direction of the grain on the stainless-steel surface.
Reapply stainless steel cleaner/polish or a concentrated cleaner to the cloth or rag.
Continue rubbing the magnet mark(s) until all residue and marks are gone.
