After your Thanksgiving or Christmas guests go home, and your leftovers are neatly packed in the refrigerator, it's time to tackle your kitchen! Don't be surprised to see splatter, drips, and globs of turkey grease on the inside and outside of your stove! Use these cleaning tips to remove grease and make your stove sparkle.
What You'll Need:
Empty Spray Bottle
Lemon, Sliced in Half
Bounty Paper Towels
Create a homemade degreaser solution. Start by filling a small spray bottle 3/4 full with hot water. Next, squeeze the juice of a fresh, sliced lemon into the funnel. Top off the bottle with white vinegar. Hold the bottle with a dishtowel to avoid burning your fingers. Replace the spray top lid and give the bottle a swirl to mix.
Make sure your stove has cooled off. Spray the solution directly on greasy areas.
Immediately, use Bounty paper towels to wipe the soft, melting grease off the stove surface. Continue spraying and wiping until no streaks remain. The acidity of the lemon juice and vinegar will help break apart the grease while the hot water will melt the congealed turkey grease.
For thick baked-on stains, repeat the spraying and wiping process a few more times. Bounty paper towels are tough, so they can be used to scrub at tough grease stains, both on the stove and inside the oven.
The homemade cleanser is also safe to use on the oven's glass window. The strong odor of the white vinegar will go away once the cleaning liquid dries. Use these cleaning tips just a few hours after your meal, and the grease will wipe away easily. Happy Holidays!
