REGARDLESS of how much we try and furiously polish them away, unsightly streaks on stainless steel surfaces are notoriously tricky to tackle.

Whether they’re ruining the appearance of your otherwise sparkling kitchen sink or making your steel extractor fan look filthy, we always thought there was no quick fix for this common household hang-up… until now.

That’s right, it turns out a bottle of baby oil can get rid of streaky stainless steel stains in just minutes.

And cleaning-mad mums can’t get enough of this quick fix.

Turning to the Facebook group Mums Who Clean for help, one woman asked her fellow 120,000 members for help cleaning the outside of her dishwasher.

Like a woman after our own hearts, the mum wrote: “This is my ‘clean’ dishwasher door. I can’t stand the marks on it.”

Having already used countless products and glass cleaners to get rid of streaks, the woman had run out of options for tackling the stains.

However, she was delighted to find that out of over 80 suggestions, it was the “baby oil which worked a treat”.

Watching the streaks disappear in seconds, all the mum had to do was douse a cloth in baby oil before sweeping it over the marks.

What’s more, another mum also got her sink sparkling in minutes thanks to a £1.50 baby oil.

Singing the praises of her genius cleaning hack, the mum enthused: “Don’t stop there, it can be used on your stove, dishwasher door and fridge!”

Having spotted others use the clever hack, the mum wrote: “This group is amazing! Used the Cif Stainless Steel spray but came out really streaky so finished it off with baby oil.”
