IS YOUR KITCHEN READY TO COOK? CLEAN IT UP WITH MEISTER!


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Meister Cleaners. All opinions are 100% mine.

Many of you know that I've been working on a not so little kitchen makeover.  I'm sure I'm the only one that this happens to, but when I'm in project mode, the rest of the house goes to the wayside.  Since the kitchen has been the project, it's been pretty much a disaster area.  We've still been grabbing meals here and there, and my sweet husband has kept the dishwasher loaded, but other than that there hasn't been much cleaning going on in there.

So, now that the work is coming to a close, it was time to move in and get everything back into shape.  My appliances were especially gross dirty, and needed a little more than the normal wipe down to be clean and pretty again.


I was given the opportunity to put these Meister Cleaners to the test in my kitchen.  I've never used specialized cleaners like these, and let me just say they won me over!


First of all, I tried the Steel Meister on all of the stainless surfaces in my kitchen.  There were paint spots, grease splatters, water marks, fingerprints and smudges abounding.
For the dishwasher, I sprayed it on and wiped with a soft cloth.  A few spots took an extra rub, but for the most part I wiped it dry and it was perfectly shiny.  Now it almost has a mirror like reflection, and those smudges that I could never quite get off are gone!


The Steel Meister leaves a micro-thin protective coating that is resistant to fingerprints and makes future cleaning easier, and cleans and conditions stainless steel while leaving minimum streaking.
  

Dried paint and pesky water spots... gone!


Now that all of my stainless surfaces were all pretty and shiny, I moved on to a few tougher jobs.  
Cleaning my oven has been on the overlooked list of things to do for a while.  I'm embarrased to admit (and show you!) how bad it's become, but on the oven door that was especially splattered with grease I decided to try the Range Meister Glass and Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner/Polish.  I don't have a glass cooktop, but I though I'd try the oven door.  It foams when sprayed, and I allowed it to sit for about 10 minutes per the instructions since the door was extra dirty.


The initial wipe with a paper towel removed much of the grime, but as stated on the can, I did have to use a second application.  After a light scrub with a non-abrasive pad, the oven door was looking presentable again.  I appreciated that this product has a nice smell as well, and is biodegradable and safe for the environment.


On the cooktop, I started with the Steel Meister Spot Cleaner.  There were spots of dried, crusty food in the drip pans that I normally spend to much time trying to scrub away.  After applying the spot cleaner and allowing it to sit for about 10 minutes, that baked on food wiped off with just a quick rub!  I followed up with more of the Steel Meister on the stainless trim, and my cooktop was sparkling again.


My granite countertop has been my workbench during this kitchen remodel, so it was loaded with paint cans and brushes, scrubbing pads, cleaners, and tools.  I think it's safe to say it took some abuse and needed a deep clean.  I tested the Stone Meister on a particularly bad spot where some tool (or paintbrush more likely) left a rusty spot and there was a patch of dried paint.  After spraying it on the spot and letting it sit for several minutes, the rust was gone with the swipe of a paper towel, and the paint went away after a few rubs.


The Stone Meister cleaner is safe for all polished granite, marble, natural stone, and other surfaces that are water-tolerant.  It won't scratch the surface or sealers that may be on your stone, won't harm or irritate your skin, and is environmentally friendly. 

As we're all preparing to give our kitchens a workout next week, Meister will help you keep everything sparkling!  You can find it at The Home Depot in the appliance department, and I think it's even on sale right now.  You can also learn more about these products on the Meister Facebook Page.

  7. I am so amazed at the before and afters with those cleaners! I hate the smudginess of stainless and how it rarely looks really clean. I can't wait to try this stuff! Happy Thanksgiving! xo Nancy

  9. Hey Kristen! Even though the Range & Cooktop cleaner wasn't specifically for ovens, I figured I'd give it a shot. It really did make the door look great, and it was SO, so bad before!

  11. Vel, I've tried several methods on the dishwasher (my worst offender) and nothing has every really worked. I truly did love the Steel Meister, it looked better than new! I just saw it in the Home Depot ad on sale right now, too. ;)
