How to Clean Appliances to Remove Grease & Stains

Want to learn how to clean stainless steel appliances without streaks? We’ll show you how Pine-Sol® can help you clean grease and stains off your appliances to keep them looking fresh and fabulous.

TIP: Be sure to check whether you’re using our new concentrated Pine-Sol® formula or the old non-concentrated formula, as that will determine your dilution ratio. See the chart below and get your ratios right!



  1. Step 1 Dilute Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner per label instructions.
  2. Step 2 Dip a sponge in the mixture or pour the mixture into a spray bottle for quick cleaning spritzes. Prepare fresh solution daily.
  3. Step 3 Wipe exterior surfaces, starting from the top and working your way down on large appliances.
  4. Step 4 Wipe down with water for a streak-free finish.

With an improved concentrated formula that is 2x as strong* to last 2x as long*, you can use less for the same great clean.
