Grease may be the most unpleasant cleaning task. It is an annoying mixture of hard and sticky, and stubbornly clings to every surface, including our fingers and hands.
But with the right cleaning products and the right approach it is not too difficult to remove grease from hard surfaces. And luckily grease doesn’t need to be cleaned away every day.
• Some areas on stoves and benchtops can be protected with aluminium foil. We can routinely dispose of the foil (recycling) rather than continually clean the surface underneath.
• Exhaust fans above stoves remove a significant amount of grease. This reduces the amount of cleaning required. It largely prevents grease from spreading in the air and settling on cupboards, benchtops and floors.
• Wiping away grease as soon as the cooking is done, before it hardens, will prevent the grease problem for accumulating.
• Wear gloves when cleaning grease. This keep our hands free from gunk.
• Periodically wipe down kitchen surfaces with diluted vinegar in warm water. Or with a mixture of white vinegar and bicarbonate of Soda. This removes cooking grease that settles form the air.
• A mixture of ammonia and water will remove most grease from grills, oven racks and stove hoods. Soaked any removable grills in this ammonia/water solution.
• Commercial cleaning agents based on citrus are very good with grease, especially on walls. Look for De-Solve-It or something similar at the hardware store.
• A nylon scrubbing brush will help remove grease from many surfaces. If it is a metal surface you can use steel wool.
