Best cleaning products for kitchen grease
Sticky, greasy kitchen cabinets are inconvenient, but they can’t be avoided in a busy, happy home. Cooking or greasy hands are common causes of grease accumulation on kitchen cupboards. It takes a little elbow grease to get stubborn grease out of a kitchen cabinet, but it’s simple to do with natural cleaning tools. Grease may be removed without the use of chemicals using everything from white vinegar to baking soda and lemon. Don’t worry if you have any sticky grease marks that need to be removed. We’ve compiled a list of the four simplest ways to clean kitchen cabinets.
Zep Citrus Foaming Degreaser (Heavy-Duty Foaming Citrus Degreaser)
Zep was by far the best stovetop cleaning I’d ever used. Because I couldn’t get the conventional spray-bottle version due to a backorder, I went with the foam, and wow. It’s a lot of pressure. The cleaner sprays a lot of fluffy white foam, which expands on contact and fills in the gritty little nooks and crannies of your stove that need cleaning the most. Surface grease was simply wiped away, and even solidified muck was easily removed after massaging the foam with an abrasive sponge. Zep is fume-free because it is made using a natural citrus-based solvent.
When it came to citrus solvents, my trusty old bottle of Goo Gone was the only item that could get rid of the last traces of grease that even Zep couldn’t get rid of. For this purpose, Goo Gone produces an Oven & Grill Cleaner, but my standard variety worked just well. Zep and Goo Gone work well together to thoroughly clean the surface of your stove.
A few sprays of Weiman Gas Range Cleaner & Degreaser helped break up leftover grease in one corner after removing the grate and burner caps from my gas oven, and minutes later I was able to wipe it practically clean with a towel. Even after using a scrubby pad, the tougher stuck-on grease didn’t dislodge. (Steel wool should never be used on an oven range, by the way.)It is going to itch.) Weiman also sells a Glass Cook Top Heavy Duty Cleaner & Polish, which has chemicals that break down grease on glass-ceramic cooktops.
Method Heavy Duty Degreaser
I had thought that using my eco-friendly option, Method Heavy Duty Degreaser, would get me anywhere, especially because it did such a good job cleaning the interior of my oven. I liberally sprayed this thing in its authorised range corner. The lightest layer easily washed away. Even after vigorous scrubbing, the heavier grease and filth refused to dislodge. Nonetheless, I intend to keep it on hand for lesser cleaning jobs in between big cleans.
- Using White Vinegar and Hot Water to Remove Grease
Because of its acidity, white vinegar is a natural cleaning solution with strong degreasing characteristics. Cleaning other kitchen equipment with white vinegar is also highly effective.

- A gentle cloth
- Liquid for dishwashing (for tough grease stains)
- Using White Vinegar to Remove Grease
- Pour a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and warm water into the spray bottle.
- Spray the solution immediately on the kitchen cabinets and let it sit for a few minutes.
- Soak the cloth in warm water, then properly rinse it to avoid causing harm to the wood cabinet.To remove grease marks, wipe the cupboards with a moist cloth.
- Sticky stains, such as marmite or chocolate spread, may require particular attention. Make a vinegar and salt paste. Then, using an old toothbrush, scrub the spots and wipe them clean.
2. Dishwashing Liquid to Remove Kitchen Cabinet Grease
Because washing up liquid cuts through oil and filth on dishes so well, it makes an excellent cabinet degreaser.

Using Dish Soap to Remove Grease
- In a basin of warm water, drop a few drops of your favorite dishwashing soap.

- If a persistent grease stain persists, dab a small amount of dish soap onto the sponge and wipe it over again. Rinse the sponge and continue the process until all grease streaks are gone.
- Wipe any remaining grease or soap residue from the kitchen cabinets with a dry towel.
