Murphy’s Oil Soap is great for removing grease from wood cabinets and it generally won’t damage the finish, but always test.

We have all stainless appliances, both built-in and countertop, and a stainless farmhouse sink—NOT the fingerprint free kind. We are careful to use the handles to minimize prints. I find them easier to keep clean than I expected. I use a clean Swiffer duster to collect any dust that may stick to the appliances, especially near the floor, and wipe off and food with a damp cloth with kitchen soap. I polish with Weiman Stainless spray, which I spray into the their stainless cloth, which does a great job a preventing streaking. After initially polishing, I need very little spray when wiping down the appliances. I often only need to spot clean on and around the handles and fully wipe not even once a month.

About fruit flies and gnat- they are two different animals but both are annoying and can be battled much the same way. There is a type of gnat that comes from sewerage, so make sure there are no leaky sewer lines or septic problems. If you carried in a houseplant that was outside all summer, they might be living in that. Give your plants a shake to see if anything flies out. Keep fruit in the refrigerator (bananas in a cupboard), no dirty dishes in the sink, and even make sure the sink basket doesn't have food in it.
