I just wanted to give an endorsement to whoever it was that suggested using Pledge for cleaning up. It was the only thing that worked to restore the life and luster to our grill, oven and lots of other stuff. I think it must be the wax, but whatever it was, definitely give it a try.

I like clean the WHOLE thing, not just the tip.

Please let us know how it looks in a few days/weeks. My experience with waxy/lubricant treatments (ie: Armor All, etc) is that it brings back the luster, but completely dries out after a few weeks and not looking good. I'd like to know if your pledge treatment lasts after it has had some time to dry out. Also, what items did you use it on? (I still haven't done my cleaning and want to steal this tip if it works!)

I'd like to thank whoever had the tip about putting an oscillating lawn sprinkler under their vehicle to clean the undercarriage (I think it was Ygmir?). I stuck one under my truck last weekend and even after two underflush car washes I was amazed at all the gunk that dripped out.

Pledge would probably great work as instant shampoo.

Spray it on your food to keep that just-cooked luster, if you expect a dust storm.

Pledge. It's not just for credenzas.

I used it on all my Camp Chef equipment...stove, oven, grill cover, etc. I'll keep you posted. But if it does dry out, it certainly wouldn't be a problem to spray it again.

Or maybe I'll try Carnuba Wax. I used that on some stainless stuff in the bathroom that always seemed to pit and turn brown on a regular basis, and it's remained shinny now for months.
