Cleaning the RF197 stainless exterior

We have had a Samsung 197 fridge for about 10 months now. It has a stainless steel exterior.

We have splashed something on the freezer door, probably something used to clean the tile floor in front of it. The stainless steel is now spotted and streaked.

We have tried plain water, dish detergent, and rubbing alcohol to clean it, but none of those affect the discoloration.

Any ideas on how to clean it up?

We had the same problem, used Weiman Stainless Steel wipes and it took it out completely.

I moved into a home that had s/s appliances that had not been cared for very well...covered with streaks and spots. I tried everything to clean them with no luck. As a last resort, I cleaned them with soft scrub (no bleach), gentle rubbing, and had great success. They were clean as a whistle; I dried with a microfiber cloth as I went. That's not something I would do on a weekly basis, but it worked to get them clean and now I maintain the shine with Steel Meister from Home Depot (its what they use on their display models). It seems to me that s/s oxidizes a bit and that is the layer that gets streaks and spots. Remove the oxidized layer with soft scrub or barkeepers friend and you remove the spots and streaks...that's just my opinion, no proof except that it worked for me.
