Stuck on Grease
Being in the kitchen can be fun especially when you have a big family that likes to eat and cook yummy food, but the fun ends when everyone leaves and the sink is full with dirty dishes, grease splattered all over the window dressings, and trash over flowing.
The combination of splattered grease and dust can create a hard to remove sticky residue all over the surface of the counters, and floors, but with undiluted vinegar that tough mess can become easier to handle.
If the microwave looks like something may have exploded inside, use the power of steam to soften those hard to remove baked on food particles. One easy formula I have discovered that works is mixing two cups of water with half a cup baking soda in a large bowl – bring it to a boil in the microwave. Remove carefully and wipe clean with a sponge or paper towel.
If you happen to have grease on your vinyl, mini, or faux wood blinds use vegetable oil on the hard grease stuck to the slats to loosen it up. If that does not work, you’ll need to remove the blinds and put them in a bathtub. First fill the bathtub with warm water halfway, and then add soap and baking soda. If your family got food directly splattered onto your blinds (like mine), you might want to spray them with a degreaser, and let them soak for 30 minutes. After just use a sponge and gently wipe each slats off. Once the grease has been removed simply rinse the blinds with clean water. Once rinsed clean you can either dry them in your backyard or lay them on a towel.
