Cleaning Grease From A Kitchen Cabinet Cleaning Grease From A Kitchen Cabinet 03 April 2014

When it comes to cleaning a home, the kitchen is often one of the key focus point. With so much to clean, however, it can be easy to let the little things slide by. Short of hiring professional cleaners, being able to keep your eye on every single aspect of the home can be difficult and more difficult still to know exactly how to deal with the problems which you do find. One of these such problems is the grease which can build up on a kitchen cabinet. Whatever you are cooking, over the course of time, it is not uncommon for a forgotten surface to gradually build up a layer of grease. Unlike other cleaning solutions, this isn’t always fixed by hard scrubbing and some anti-bacterial spray. So how should you approach the greased up cabinet when it comes to cleaning your home? The first thing which you will need is a large bucket of bowel. The size of the tool which you require will pretty much depend on the amount of cleaning which you need to do and the amount of grease which will need to be removed. For the most part, it is better to get the largest container available rather than trying to get by with one which is just about big enough. When you have chosen your bucket, add warm water. This is best done by boiling a series of kettles and pouring it into the container. Once the bucket or bowl is filled with boiled water, allow it to cool down a little before proceeding. To this warm water, you are going to want to add a cleaning agent. To remove grease from a surface, it is possible to purchase specialist cleaners from the supermarket. These solutions often promise to remove the grease in a quick and easy fashion but they can be expensive. For something you will likely not use on a regular basis, it might be worth trying to the following household items which can have the same effect. Add in a small amount of dish soap. You only need enough to create a small amount of suds, so try not to go overboard as this can leave a soapy and sticky residue on the surfaces. This residue can only serve to attract more grease in the future, so you will not be doing yourself any favours. For each litre of water which you have, add in fifty millilitres of white vinegar. Stir this mixture until everything has been suitably combined. Get a sponge and begin to soak it in the mixture. Squeeze and release it several times in order to ensure that the sponge is properly filled with the solution and that you are ready to begin scrubbing. Using the solution filled sponge, wipe down the cabinets and any surfaces which might have attracted the build-up of grease. Running the sponge across them, apply a firm but not strong amount of pressure and as you continue to scrub, you should see the grease beginning to dissolve under the mixture. Make sure to rinse and squeeze out the sponge in the bucket frequently. This will stop the grease from transferring to the sponge and will ensure that you always have a good supply of the vinegar and soap mix in order to get the cabinets as clean as possible. When all of the grease has been removed, begin to dry down the area with a dry towel. As the area dries, check it in order to see whether any grease spots remain. If so, get the sponge back out and repeat the process until all surfaces are grease free.
