Just Another Natural Nut
I am going to be honest with you, maintaining stainless appliances for aesthetic purposes is hard work.
As a business who uses only natural products, maintaining stainless appliances for aesthetic purposes when clients use or have used a conventional product to 'shine it up' is frustratingly time consuming.
Every time you use a conventional product dedicated to stainless, you are leaving a waxy residue that, overtime, builds-up. For companies who create these products this is awesome as the longer you use their products the more you have to use each time and the more you have to buy.
I will let you in on a little secret....you don't need those expensive products to maintain the aesthetics of your client's stainless appliances (the above pic has only been cleaned and polished with Just Shine) The trick is to make sure you are using a product that does not have wax or silicone as an ingredient (most conventional glass cleaners and some 'green' ones do). Water alone can work as long as you don't have to deal with a lot of sticky smudges.
You can check out my video on how to make your client's stainless shine if you have never used a conventional stainless polishing product here
How do you know if there is a build-up on the stainless appliances...do the water test. Put tap water into a spray bottle, place the nozzle on spray, not stream and spray the front of the appliance. If the water starts to run down towards the floor, you have a build-up. If the water stays in one spot with no running vertically towards the floor you have no residue build-up (for this to work you have to spray on vertical surfaces)

If you have been using a conventional polisher for your client's stainless you need to add another step. I use the Just Polish because the one of the ingredients work to remove all of the residue build-up over time .
