I had never realized before how spotty stainless steel can get until I recently bought all stainless steel appliances. I mean my toast and bread box were stainless steel before but I guess with such little surface area I never paid much attention to it.
Let's see stainless steel plus kids equal a lot of spots and smudges. I don't have time to be constantly wiping everything down so something that is spot and fingerprint resistant like the Moen Boardwalk lavatory faucet (plus it uses up to 32% less water) would be great in my household.
With most stainless steel surfaces it seems as though you can't just wipe it down with Windex. Mine seem to stay streaky that way. Ugh. Have you noticed how water spots seem to stay on stainless steel sinks too? Like they've embedded themselves into it. Good thing I'm a mom and have more important things to deal with most of the time.
In my house water spots and finger prints get their main cleaning attack when a lot of company is coming over. In my kitchen, while the appliances are stainless steel my fixtures are an oil rubbed bronze. I've been trying to go with an overall Tuscan theme but I am by far not an interior designer. However, in the bathrooms I kept the faucets the classic chrome.
One of the great reasons to build a new home is that you get to choose all of the house's fixtures including faucets. If I had had the choice of the Boardwalk Spot Resist bath faucet I probably would have gone with that. Something that stays clean is great for busy parents. We need all the help we can get. Luckily, if I ever get to changing out my faucets Lowes carries them. We've been doing a lot of business with Lowes since we moved into the new house trying to change this and paint that.

That would be wonderful if I had a faucet that resisted fingerprints. I can imagine how fun it would be to custom pick all the
Things in a new home.
It is super fun! I think if I ever do it again I will have them paint and just suck up the cost because painting has been a pain.
The Dose of Reality
It is crazy how spotty they get! If we ever switch out our faucets I am going with the stain resistant for sure. Stopping by from SITS. 🙂
I am forever cleaning mine and of course I am the only one who does clean them
I’m the only one that cleans them too 🙁
