Cleaning metal furniture

Cleaning aluminium, chrome, and stainless steel is all more or less the same, and can be done very simply with the Gyre and Gymble #cleanwithfood process.


  • 50/50 vinegar and water
  • Bicarb soda
  • Sweet almond oil 
  • Lemon essential oil

For a quick once over, just spray with the vinegar and water mix, wipe clean, and then add a small amount of sweet almond oil with some added lemon essential oil to polish and finish. 

It the metal is very dirty, sprinkle with bicarb soda first. This will act as a gentle scouring agent and then just follow with the oils once rubbed clean. 

The oil finish will act in 2 ways. First, it will help stop fingerprints marking the metal. Secondly, it will give the metal a lovely clean shine, and with the added lemon essential oil, it will smell great too!
