Does TriNova Stainless Cleaner & Polish work?Few home accessories are as ubiquitous as stainless appliances. When cleaned properly they can really make a kitchen pop.

The key there is “when cleaned properly.”

If you own stainless appliances you know exactly what I mean by that… Fingerprints!

If you’ve owned your stainless goodies for more than a few minutes you’ve no doubt discovered they are they fingerprint and smudge magnets. Even the so called “smudge-proof stainless” will show fingerprints and smudges at some point, it’s just not as obvious right away.

Fortunately, we are blessed with a variety of cleaners and polishes that make quick touchups a breeze.

One such product is TriNova’s Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish, which TriNova sent to me in exchange for a review.

For those not familiar with TriNova, they are owned by GoldEagle, the same company behind the 303 line of household, marine, and automotive products. Their automotive chemicals are top notch so I have high expectations for their new line of household chemicals.

First Impressions

When you purchase TriNova Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish it comes with a fairly decent plush microfiber cloth. The one I received was a baby blue with stitched edge binding made of Chinese 75/25 polyester/polyamide microfiber.

Full disclosure, I’m a bit of a microfiber snob since I deal with lots of microfiber while auto detailing. In all fairness, this towel is actually a solid offering for household cleaning. In the automotive world I prefer Korean fiber towels preferably in an 80/20 mix but that’s probably overkill for cleaning your brushed stainless appliances (and would drive up the price of the cleaner bundle).

I do like that the towel they offer has a removable tag. It’s just stuck to the face of the towel with a mild adhesive and can be pulled right off.

Okay okay, enough about the microfiber towel. Like I said, microfiber snob… ha.

The cleaner itself comes in an attractive white 16 fl. oz bottle with a foil seal. This type of seal is great for preventing leaks while shipping, which I had no issues with when receiving the bottle in the mail.

After popping the seal, you can smell a very faint aroma of cinnamon mixed with 409. It’s mild enough that I don’t anticipate it bothering anyone sensitive to aromatic cleaners.

The cleaner itself is thin, slightly more than water-like with a milky appearance. Right away I’m suspect of the “polish” part of this cleaner’s name.

After spreading the cleaner out it dried clear with a very smooth feel. This is great because it means the cleaner shouldn’t cause its’ own streaks when cleaning unlike other household cleaners such as Windex and Simple Green that leave a streaky film.

Impressions after Using on Stainless

As a cleaner, TriNova Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish does a very good job at removing smudges, fingerprints, and other marks from stainless.

It’s easy to spot and remove on large surfaces. It leaves no oily residue. On smaller surfaces it does take a little more effort to buff away to a perfect finish.

Given it’s water-like consistency it’s very easy to spread.

As suspected, the polishing part of the name is mostly marketing. I get why they put it on the label, though. While it cleaned all smudges from the stainless it didn’t increase the luster at all.

Given my background in auto detailing when I hear polish I think of a product with a mild cut to the surface it’s used on to increase the shine. This is not that. If you have scratches in your stainless this product will not remove them.

Final Thoughts

TriNova Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish is a solid cleaner.

  • The aroma is very mild.
  • It’s water-like consistency makes it very easy to apply and remove.
  • It does a great job at quickly removing smudges and oily residue.
  • The lack of a sprayer does make it slightly less convenient to use.
  • The inclusion of a decent microfiber towel make it a great bargain.
  • The bottle is high quality, as is the seal, so no problems with leaks in shipping.

As expected, this TriNova product is a solid product. I’m excited to try some more of their household products. I would absolutely purchase this in the future when this bottle runs dry.
