CLEVELAND -- Two challenging kitchen chores are a piece of cake with our time-saving tricks.

First, are your stainless steel appliances a magnet for fingerprints? Keep them smudge-free with baby oil.

Here's how...

Clean the surface with a soapy sponge, and dry. Use a soft cloth to spread a thin layer of baby oil, then buff off the excess. The thin coat of oil will help prevent future fingerprints for a few weeks.

It won't repel all fingerprints, but we found that it really did help -- especially if you find yourself constantly wiping up after your kids!
