Especially for everyday chores. Here is a nice, easy does it, nothing-else-required type of product that does a good job.
The Simple Human microfiber mitt ($4.99) works to keep stainless steel surfaces clean with out chemicals or cleaners - just water.
Wet on side, clean away, use the other side to buff and dry. When it gets yucky, toss it in the laundry. Think of all the paper towels (and money) you won't be throwing away!
Available at The Container Store and from Simple Human.
