I LOVE GREASED LIGHTNING! It really is some amazing stuff! It works well on laundry stains too. DH is a truck driver and gets fifth-wheel grease on his clothes sometimes...I wipe off what I can and spray it with greased lighting before sticking it in the washer...comes out clean every time!

Another great product is Dawn Power Disslover! Works great at cleaning up burnt on grease off of pots and pans. Just spray it on and let it sit for a couple of hours and most of it will wipe right off.

Hi Mama,
Yes there was another post in this thread about Dawn Power Disolver being great. Another post was that it didn't work too well for them. Got me wondering since it is apply and soak. The catch maybe the water so I was wondering do you have hard or soft water? I am guessing a lot of hard minerals in the water might reduce the kick of DPD.

I use DPD all the time. I can't always find it around here and had to order it online last time.

I have soft water. Andy, I get mine at Wal-Mart. They put it in with the dish detergent on the top shelf.

Greased lighning didn't take off the permanent black magic marker line on the side of the counter top. Goo Off had it gone in seconds. Not sure what is in it think it is a trichloroethyline or a methlethyl ketone(forgive spelling). Not something to use near an open flame but the marker stain is gone.

I'm going to find some of this Greased Lightning. Like most, I have kitchen cabinets that only come up to a foot below my ceiling, and I do use it for platters and such that I don't use every day. Add to this the fact that it is an old home and it seems cobwebs just grow and take on a life of their own, those places get dust/cobweb/grease like you wouldn't believe. Plus, I'm not a neatnick (although some of my friends would disagree) and only clean up there when I really, really, really have to (in other words ummm ... can't remember when last did it). I keep swearing that I'm one day going to have a custom kitchen and the cabinets will go all the way to the ceiling!

Claire I like your idea for a custom kitchen with cabinets to the ceiling. Now I ask you why why why should it have to be custom? Do kitchen designers not know what happens in a kitchen? Who thinks grease won't condense on a surface near a stove? MDW needs a step stool to reach the top shelf anyway so it isn't as if they didn't go higher as it would be to much of a reach for anyone. It would be a great spot to store seasonal or seldom used items. The only reason things get displayed up there is due to the fact they stopped short of the ceiling with the cabinets. Oh well things are the way they are.
