Have You Been Fingerprinted?

You know they're unique. You know they can identify you. But did you know they can be immediately detrimental to the possible sale of your home? You say, how can this be? Well, read on, especially if you've been fingerprinted recently.

Fingerprint Removal from Stainless Steel

 

Home buyers can be overly concerned with cleanliness in a home they're considering for purchase - and rightfully so. The kitchen is high on the "keep it pristine" list. So, in addition to all the general tidy up to be done before your home is shown via open house or individual appointment, you'll need to remove signs of use from your stainless steel appliances. And that includes stains as well as your fingerprints!

 

Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes

 

For the quickest cleanup of stainless steel surfaces, I highly recommend Weiman Stainless Steel Wipes. Pop open the top, pull out a wipe, swipe it over your stainless steel, and like magic, those stains and fingerprints are gone! It will take less than 5 minutes of the time you've allotted before someone comes to view your home.

Stainless is great, but you have to have a good product to get rid of those troublesome stains and fingerprints.

This is the product of choice for me too and I've tried them all!  Stainless can be such a pain with two small grandsons around, but these wipes have really saved the day!

Hi Sharon - Oh yes, those little ones are so much fun, but they can really leave an interesting trail... ;-)

Judy, the chief cook uses Wright's Silver Polishing Cream. It cleans the grime and doesn't leave any buildup.  Then just a quick swipe with some window cleaner and the clean will nearly blind you.  I haven't seen anything quite like it.

Thanks. I didn't realize that this product existed. Stainless steel has always been a problem.

Hi Valerie - We are surely twins separated at birth! I have the exact same compulsion! It's just so much neater that way.
