I’ve been trying to get rid of the yucky build up of grease and oil on our microwave and wood cabinets for weeks. They sit right above the stove, which gets a daily work out around here. I’d prefer not to use overly harsh cleaners, but my everyday ones weren’t cutting through the grease.
I tried a few natural remedies I found via Pinterest, but again they didn’t cut it. Today, I looked over at my little container of homemade gunk remover and realized that was my solution. It’s not just for removing labels!
It worked like a charm! I made a fresh paste of vegetable oil and baking soda, and the sticky build up just melted away! It was magical. Well, as magical as cleaning yucky dirt and oil can be.
The good news is, our microwave looks brand new! I just used a soft cloth to apply my mixture, then wiped it clean. I then used a glass cleaner to touch up any of the fresh oily residue left behind.
Kitchen Gunk Remover
1 part vegetable oil
2 parts baking soda
Mix together and apply with a soft cloth or paper towel. Watch gunky, oily build up disappear.
I’m so excited about this, I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
