Tips for Cleaning Grease

Grease is one of the toughest stains to clean, especially when it is dry. No matter how many times you clean your stove or kitchen appliance with a cleaner, you may still find spots of grease left behind.

Fortunately, there are natural remedies when it comes to dealing with stubborn grease. In fact, everything you need can already be found right inside your kitchen. Here are a few ways to get rid of grease and have a spotless kitchen in no time.

  • Sprinkle flour on newly spilled grease. Even grease that spilled just a few seconds ago can be tough to remove. But, you can easily eliminate it from your counter or stove when you have flour at hand. Simply sprinkle flour on the grease and wipe it clean. The grease will be absorbed by flour.
  • Wipe greasy area with straight vinegar. It may not be a fragrant solution, but vinegar can also be a tough cleaner. Use straight vinegar to remove grease by dabbing it on a cloth or sponge and wiping the area. You may also use a spray bottle to spray vinegar on the greasy area and let it soak for a few minutes before wiping it off.
  • Mix your own baking soda solution. One major benefit of baking soda is its power to clean just about any stain in your house. You can even use a mixture of water and baking soda to remove grease from your counters. Simply mix the two together, apply to the stain, and scrub.
  • De-grease your kitchen fabrics with salt and alcohol. You may not be able to use this solution on greasy appliances or counters, but you can use it to remove grease off your kitchen fabric. Mix one part salt with four parts alcohol and rub the greasy spot until the area is totally clean.
  • Use dishwashing soap. Dishwashing soaps easily make your plates clean and spotless, which means it can also used on your appliances and counters. Dip a rag into warm water mixed with dishwashing soap and scrub until clean.
