Living Proof Of Smudge Proof Mustard Test Challenge

Smudge Proof Stainless Steel Fridge

This post is all about a challenge, a challenge to see if your kitchen can be truly smudge proof. I challenge all of you to The Mustard Test.

That’s right, I’m back talking about my Frigidaire Gallery French Door Fridge!

In the past I have showed you How To Organize Your Fridge Like a Pro, and How Frigidaire Makes Entertaining Easy and now I want to show you just how easy it is to have a smudge proof kitchen.

Smudge Proof Mustard Test

The test is simple: squirt some mustard on your fridge and clean it up with a damp paper towel. Here’s my results:

I even shot a quick video on Instagram with the process.

What does this mean for you?

It’s simple: easy clean up. In this test I only used one large piece of damp paper towel, I didn’t use anything to dry it either. It’s literally streak free and smudge proof! Considering I’m a mom of a two year old who constantly has his grubby hands everywhere, a smudge-proof kitchen is something I’m thankful for!

What’s The Smudge Proof Secret?

Frigidaire has Smudge Proof Technology. It’s a new anti-smudge technology that resists stains and fingerprints, which makes it easier to clean than traditional stainless steel surfaces. Frigidiare uses high-grade stainless steel that is coated with layers of polymers. The results are a sleek finish that is durable and toddler resistant. I appreciate that fact that I have had this fridge for almost a year and I have yet to polish it! No maintenance needed, just the way I like it.

Do you have a Smudge Proof Kitchen?

It’s easy to find out! Simple conduct the mustard test and share your results in the comments.

  1. I love the Frigidaire Gallery line! I just got the gas range last month and LOVE it so much! I have an adult child, teens and a toddler (and husband) and I am amazed at how easy the oven is to keep clean!
    My fridge… A different story! Lol I know how smudgy fridges can get! I can’t wait to get a matching Frigidaire gallery fridge now!

  2. Oh I can guarantee my fridge would not pass. I have an older “first generation” stainless steel fridge and it’s a cleaning nightmare :(

    • Lemon Pledge! I worked at The Brick for a long time and I loved cleaning them with pledge. Hated the stainless cleaners, it took so long to buff.

  3. My appliances are old. SO not smudge proof. I bet anyone without kids is thinking “No way would I have mustard on my fridge door” but those of us that do, know all too well lol

  5. Wow. I’m impressed. I am NOT giving my fridge the mustard test, I am certain it would fail and be much less fun to clean up then yours was.
