Cleaning grease

Not your ordinary grease from this morning or yesterday, or even last week.

I'm talking about the stuff you find that has been there since school started last year and you are doing a move out.
It looks and feels a lot like a piece of plastic and I've found nothing that will dissolve it and I've tried a lot of stuff.

In general hard surfaces. The stove itself, the exhaust fan, occasionally on hoods, and I've seen it on popcorn poppers.

Grease build up on the stovetop or counter top can be a bear to remove – unless you’re using the right cleaner.

Kind of figured that part out already. Would you have any idea what the right kind of cleaner is?

Removing grease from stove top or counter top is an easy task when you know how. Other than that there are commercial products designed to remove oil and grease, you can also consider using it.

We have always had fantastic luck using a product like citrus solve. We have a carpet cleaning company so most of our experience is with carpet, but sometimes when we need to clean grease off of the hoses or off of the machine or some other random thing, I will take a bit of citrus solve on a rag, and just rub it right off. I believe the active ingredient is just Dlimeone which is basically a naturally occurring solvent that is extracted from citrus. i am pretty sure you can get a similar product that is derived from evergreen trees and might cost a bit less.

Usually removing grease stains just require basic greese removal products mixed with some water. If its on a steel surface use a steelwoll to clean it and a rag to wipe it down.

Zep citrus degreaser is pretty potent, works well on most types of grease.

I'd say if the job is going to be that big of a PITA... just pass on it. There are so many easy, great paying jobs out there, why deal with the PITA's?

Grease stain is very rigid and it is difficult to clean. But you can try vinegar for removing it.

If you have a grease spill that's still wet, you want to make sure you don't spread the grease around while trying to clean it up. You can accomplish this by sprinkling the spot with flour to help soak up the excess oil. Allow the flour to sit on the spot for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, and then sweep or brush off the loose flour before using a paper towel to wipe up the remaining greasy paste. Spray the spot with a grease-cutting kitchen cleaner, and wipe the spot again.

When in doubt use SD-20 by spartan. You can pick it up at a grocery store.

Try the cleaning supplies from Akro, a catering equipment company, which provides cleaning and hygiene equipment to many restaurants and commercial businesses. I am sure this grease will be removed.

Try to remove the affected area with some acid cleanser. You can also try to call a professional and ask for advice. I don't want to give any suggestions because I don't know what is the type of the surface and how bad the situation is. If you give me more details, I will try to help you.

agree with MarryJone

I have to agree. Baking soda is great. If its a really tough job and the baking soda with a brush or brillo isn't doing it alone, you can shake on the baking soda, add vinegar and give it dwell time. Another great natural cleaner for stains, not so much grease is a mixture of salt and lemon juice.
You can find many of these tips on our blog at taraspersonalcleaning.wordpress.com/healthy-living-tip-of-the-day

Hope this helps
