stainless steel streaks

My company has stainless steel restroom stalls which we clean daily. The issue we have is no matter what cleaning solution that we use on the stalls, there are lasting streaks. We have used vinager and water, glass cleaner, and deep gloss stainless cleaner. All these solutions leave streaks after wiping and drying. We know our stalls are clean, but not to the eye. Any home solutions or off the shelf solutions will be welcome. Thank you in advance

I understand your frustration with this problem. Using a standard stainless steel cleaner/polish usually leaves an oily finish.. Sheila Shine is a product that many use, but it does leave a residue. You might want to look for a product that is both oil and water based. I have used this in the past at several restaurants in the Atlanta area and it works really well.
You might want to talk with your paper supplier and if he can't find the product I mentioned above, let me know and I will see if I can help you find someone in your area so you can but it locally.
Good luck and take care

Try liquid ammonia solution, which I use from a simple spray bottle.

50 50 mixture of baby oil and rubbing alcohol. Spray on and wipe off. Cleans sterilizes and eliminates the streaks.

It could be the paper towels too. I use ammonia and water to clean windows and if you use cheap paper towels, they will streak.
