Creating a kitchen that’s attractive but easy to keep clean is a goal for most homeowners but it’s especially hard for parents of young children. Kids seem to find away to get fingerprints on every appliance you own.
A textured finish refrigerator is certainly a start but if it’s time to replace your appliances, you may want to consider stainless steel. These usually have a higher price tag, but many homeowners prefer the look and low maintenance of stainless steel.
But to really battle fingerprints, make sure the stainless steel includes a mixture of nickel. Unlike ordinary stainless steel this composite material is virtually smudge-proof. While dirt and grime can accumulate on the surface they can easily be removed with a damp cloth. Then, at least once every other week, spray on a stainless steel cleaner to bring out the luster of the finish.
