Clean Fingerprints off Stainless Steel Appliances

Less than 24 hours after moving into our new home, the refrigerator broke. We scrambled to gather coolers and purchase ice to keep our food from going bad. It was 1:30 in the morning and you can imagine the grumblings from the two of us. Remodeling the kitchen and purchasing new appliances was in our 5-year plan for this house – but replacing a major appliance on the first day?! Argh.
