How to Keep Stainless Steel Appliances Looking New

Stop Fingerprints, Smudges, Rust & Bacteria Buildup


Do you love your stainless steel but hate the smudges, fingerprints and rust?

We love our stainless steel appliances, but it can be so frustrating when stainless steel is constantly covered in fingerprints and smudges.  Stainless steel refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves and even stainless sinks need protection.  


Keep stainless steel appliances inside and outside of your home looking like the first day you bought them.  Stop rust and corrosion on your outdoor kitchen appliances.  You can even restore older stainless appliances to look new again!


Our CrobialCoat coating is easy to apply, self-leveling and will blend itself so touch-ups are easy and last for years to come.  Our customers love that appliances coated with CrobialCoat are so easy to keep clean. Just a quick wipe cleans off any mess. 

CrobialCoat takes our proven performance of ProtectaClear and adds the additional anti-microbial protection of Microban.  CrobialCoat can be applied over ProtectaClear to add anti-microbial protection.  If your stainless steel is new, you just need CrobialCoat. For rusted or corroded steel, we have a kit with cleaners and CrobialCoat available to restore your stainless steel surfaces.


Our coatings can be used for many stainless-steel applications, including appliances, sinks, barbeques and much more

First, make sure your appliance is Real Stainless Steel

CrobialCoat is formulated to protect REAL stainless steel or brushed steel appliances.  There are some appliances made of faux stainless steel.  They are called "lookalike" stainless and are made from metal covered with a plastic film that can look like stainless but is not real stainless steel.  These finishes usually go by names such as meteorite or slate.  CrobialCoat will protect real metal but plastic film cannot stand up to solvents.  If you are getting fingerprints on the metal, chances are that you have real stainless steel. 

You can check with the retailer where you purchased your appliance to make sure they are REAL stainless steel.  Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowes and other appliance retailers should be able to tell you if your appliance is stainless steel or a lookalike.   You also may be able to check the websites of the manufacturers: LG, Whirlpool, Samsung, Frigidaire, GE, Amana and others to see if your model number has real stainless.  

How to Protect your New Stainless Steel Appliance

  1. Remove the plastic protective film by peeling it off.  

  2. Clean the stainless steel by washing with a soft cloth and mild soap and water.  Dish soap works well. 

  3. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.

  4. Wipe with a clean solvent.  This will ensure a completely clean and dry surface.

  5. Saturate applicator with CrobialCoat and gently squeeze out the excess.  It should be wet but not dripping.  

  6. Apply a smooth, even coat of CrobialCoat and let dry.

  7. Enjoy the beauty of your appliances as they stay looking new without fingerprints or smudges.

  8. Have peace of mind knowing that CrobialCoat anti-microbial coating is helping to prevent the buildup of bacteria and germs.


Lab studies have proven CrobialCoat to significantly reduce the growth of microbes and help surfaces stay 99% cleaner than unprotected surfaces.  This effectiveness will last the life of the coating, as Microban antimicrobial technology is built into the coating and will not wash off. 

Unprotected surfaces can breed odor-causing bacteria, which can double in number every 20 minutes. This can cause the development of stains, unpleasant odors and bacteria which impacts the aesthetics, durability and cleanliness of a surface. In many circumstances, once microbes have begun to proliferate on a surface, constant cleaning is required to keep growth under control.  Constant cleaning may not be the most reasonable or economic solution.  CrobialCoat™ is the solution for durable corrosion and microbial protection. 

Microban Treated vs Untreated Surface

Recognizing that the ability to clean constantly is unreasonable in most environments, the best weapon against microbial growth is antimicrobial coating with built-in protection.

Customer Reviews for Stainless Appliances

CrobialCoat was easy to apply. I cleaned the front of my dishwasher and wiped it on. It made the stainless steel look great and no more fingerprints. The best thing is that now I know the surface is clean and has antimicrobial on it and my grandson can touch all he wants. I will buy more for other appliances!!!    Teresa S.
