Cleaning Kitchen Grease with Baking Soda

We all know that putting an open box in your fridge gets that funky odor. And it only gets better from there. This is definitely where my old-world immigrant roots show because I clean with boiling water, vinegar, and baking soda more often than not. Just like my grandmothers did.

Baking soda is a must for kitchen cleaning. In seconds, it can turn your brown-stained coffee pot and cups back into a brilliant white. It melts grease off griddles and stovetops. And it brings back brilliance to your kitchen sink. The technique is basically the same for each use. Today, I want to show you how to get rid of stove-top grease the quick and easy way.

I wanted to clean the stove-top today before I made some broth and decided to take you along for the fun. Even though the journey lasted all of 10 minutes.

That’s what I love about baking soda cleaning: it turns something that would normally take a lot of time and elbow grease into a casual few minutes while your coffee brews. Enough introductions, let’s get started!

So… don’t judge. It’s been a while since I’ve cleaned. We’ll pretend I’ve been saving it up to show you this 🙂

Look at that caked on grease splatter.. Ew. Someone cooked bacon the other day. That needs some serious chemicals, gloves and a good half hour of scrubbing. Right?

Nope! Three paper towels and baking soda.

 

Step 1: Wet a paper towel and sprinkle with baking soda.

Don’t be shy to be heavy handed. It should turn into a layer of paste.

Step 2: Wipe the grease off.

Baking Soda loosens baked-on grease from the surface so easily that all you have to do is just wipe it off. Start with the dirtiest areas and don’t worry that you will end up baking soda paste on your surface because the next step takes care of that.

The hardest part here is not accidentally turning on every burner. This takes practice.

Ew.. Wow that paper towel is gross. Think of it this way, everything that was on your surface is now on that paper towel! Toss it.

Step 3: Wet a second paper towel and rinse off the residue.

Soak the paper towel in water and wipe off all brownish clumps of leftover baking soda paste. Basically…. Rinse.

Step 4: Wipe down with a dry paper towel.

And you’re done! Honestly, I spent more time trying to take photos than I did cleaning.

Look at that sparkle!

Easy, pretty mess-free, and no harsh chemicals.

Baking Soda is also fantastic for coffee cups stained dark brown and it can really make your sink shine.

Now that you’ve seen this… you sure you want to put something like that on your skin? 😉 An article about baking soda in skincare (including natural deodorants) coming real soon!
