how to clean brushed steel

I have recently got a new kitchen fitted, and am really happy with it - IKEA in case anyone's interested!

The only thing I'm having trouble with is the front of the oven door and the extractor fan are brushed effect steel. The extractor has greasy fingerprints on it, and I have tried to clean it just with fairy and a soft sponge but it doesn't work, and the oven front has smears too. I'm scared to try anything, as I ruined the finish on my fridge on the first day by scrubbing it blush !

Any tips?

Rub oil into using a bit of kitchen roll, then wipe off with clean kitchen roll. You can use baby oil, although I quite often use Olive oil, just cause it's in the kitchen and is handy.

(Got this tip from my sister's mother-in-law)

yy, oil. Baby oil is best, sunflower is OK but olive oil can get quite smelly.
