    Thanks everyone! I have a question about the Dawn/water combo...then do you just wipe it with a wet sponge afterwards to get any soap remnants off?

    I don't know where you live Lois, but you might want to consider the water hardness. If it is particularly hard, you might want to pick up a jug of distilled or demineralized water. The water here leaves marks on everything and I have to add salt and finishing rinse to the dishwasher just to combat it.

    OK, ironically I went to that link and could not find the article.

    But I searched some of Real Simple's articles and I found one that said:

    Let it shine
    Streak-free stainless-steel surfaces are the Holy Grail of kitchen cleaning. Caldrea's olive oil--based Stainless Steel Spray promises to reduce fingerprints. (Available in five scents, including green tea and lavender pine, $12 for 11.8 ounces, 877-576-8808, www.caldrea.com.)

    But I had also read somewhere else that the oil-based cleaners aren't good. ARGH!

    I'm going to try the Dawn/water combo and sponge it off. Thanks everyone for your tips! And thanks Gabriel for calling your friend to check for me! Canuck, we have really hard water out here but have a really good water softener that seems to do the trick.

    If you're using the dishsoap and rinse method you definitely need to be careful of the water. After you rinse you'll need to buff it dry to remove all the water and get it to shine.

    Just a word about Dawn. I have a friend who uses it for everything ... even as a Bubble bath !
