GREASE: MOLLY MAID Solutions for Easy Clean-up

After cooking on the stove, chances are you have a few grease stains to clean up. The sooner you can get to them, the easier they’ll be to clean. However, even if you’ve left splatter sitting for a few days, these tips from professional house cleaners at MOLLY MAID will make it easy for you to clean up grease throughout your kitchen.

  • Get into the habit of cleaning grease splatters from the stovetop every time you cook. Fresh grease splatters are much easier to remove than hardened grease. Wet a microfiber cloth with warm soapy water and wring it out, then wipe the surface of the stove.
  • Be sure to check and clean areas around the stove too – such as counters, backsplash, the back of the stove and the floor.
  • If grease has been sitting on the stovetop or other surface fora while, wet the spill first with a little warm water, let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe it clean.
  • For a tough, baked on grease stain, use a degreaser product. Spray on the degreaser and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, use a damp cloth to wipe away the grease.
  • Grease that has been sitting on a surface for longer periods of time (splashed on cupboards you’ve forgotten to clean or under counters), may require a couple of cleanings to get it off. Use warm water to wet it down and either a special grease remover or dish detergent. Always rinse the area well with clean water too.
  • Soak removable grease filters (from the stove) in warm water and a bit of grease removal product. Scrub clean and rinse.
  • To reduce the amount of grease splattering on the stovetop and hood in the first place, use a mesh splatter screen over pots and pans while you’re cooking. Ask about these screens at a specialty kitchen store or department stores – you may even be able to find one at the pound store.
