Somehow grease manages to get inside our cabinets, making shelf surfaces of the shelves sticky. A great tip for cleaning them is to use WASHING-UP LIQUID and warm water to lift the stain; however, if the stain is more stubborn than expected, vinegar is a good grease remover. For wood surfaces a FURNITURE POLISH is great at getting the shine back, but please do follow the manufacturer’s directions to ensure that the product is compatible with the wood finish of the cabinet.
Washing-up liquid and warm water can be used to lift stains from the stove, but it does need to contain a degreaser, as does CITROL WASHING-UP LIQUID; with the added advantage of a citrus ingredient grease marks will dissolve easily. When scrubbing ensure you do so in circular movements.
Place vent screens in the sink, filled with hot water and a degreaser such as ULTRADOSE DEGREASER, leave to soak and then wash as usual, either in the sink or in the dishwasher.
