What is the best way to clean stainless steel refrigerator doors?
I find that olive oil is a great way to attract dust, and if the thin layer all over your fridge should then turn rancid, your kitchen is going to smell horrible.
A soft cleaning rag (like a piece of old t-shirt or towel) and baking soda (moistened gently) will not only remove dirt and oils from the surface, but they won't scratch it either.
If it is tarnished, clean it with a metal cleaner first with a microfiber cloth (you may use white scubbing pad only if needed and refer door is not new. Scrub gently circular motion. You could easily leave scratch marks) and polish with a aerosol metal polisher finish the shine.
If the surface is decently clean, just use aerosol stainless steel or metal polisher with a microfiber cloth works well.
Note: if your refer has a highly mirrored polished stainless doors, do not follow this method, it's surface gets easily scratched. Always try a small area demo first before starting your job.
e-cloth has a really good microfiber set for stainless steel appliances. http://eclothusa.com/Stainless-Steel-Pack.html
One cloth has a scrubby side on it (but it won't scratch, it feels a bit like super soft velcro) that is good for sticky stuff. The other side is microfiber. The second cloth is for polishing to get a streak-free finish. e-cloth has a really good guarantee on their cloths (300 washes) and they're proven to remove 99% of bacteria.
If you've used spray cleansers/polishes on your appliances in the past, you might find that the e-cloth (or other high grade microfiber cloths) leaves some nasty streaks. When you use the e-cloth, it will pick up some of the cleanser/polish and leave some behind. You'll feel the cloth REALLY drag as it goes over the polish.
It's going to take a bit of elbow grease with the scrubby side of the Stainless Steel e-cloth to get rid of that polish but it's going to be worth it. If that doesn't work, you can also try baking soda with the e-cloth like relache mentioned. Just make sure to test it in a small inconspicuous area first as baking soda is very mildly abrasive.
