Coincidentally, I'm scheduled to do the same thing this month. Take the two doors off and make everything shine top to bottom. All I've ever used is Scrubbing Bubbles foaming spray and a blue scrubbing sponge (fiberglass tub/shower).

I love Scrubbie Bubbles. I use it on the front of my kitchen cabinets. Even the appliances. And I just LOVE how shiny it makes the faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. I swear those bubbles can clean anything without any scrubbing.

When we were fixing up my mum's apartment in Denmark (~2010) to sell it, we checked out the new ovens and bought one with steam cleaning. It worked quite well. It never got used enough to know if it would cause rusting, but I doubt it does. This was on a gas oven.

Gentle (((hugs))). Eek! It popped? It separated! Where were you and what were you doing when you got the horrible pain? Geez, I hope that gets better quickly.

Bummer. I wonder why rodents would be attracted to gasoline.

Spike picked me up a can of industrial strength Scrubbie Bubbles today at Home Depot. Every time I go in the bathroom, I find something else to clean. All that is left is the floor. I don't know if I have the energy for that tonight. But the bathroom is sparkling clean.

Boss lady heard it from across the room. They figure it got hung up on a calcification and snapped past it creating the wonderful pain and then it just kept hurting from inflammation. I've had a couple days of rest with it and it has reduced. Still sore but it doesn't hurt, if that makes sense. Electrical stimulation, ice therapy, Icy Hot and Tylenol. Wouldn't be so bad, except for being left handed, so it gets more use than it should.

Nothing loose, nothing blocking, but it's starting to sound like my knees...Rice Krispies.

Gah! Amplified! So sorry, PF, glad you have a treatment plan, and that you're feeling better.

I forgot to mention...all I was doing was picking up my pen from in front of me when it happened. It wasn't until the next day that we figured out which repetitive motion was making it worse. The printer is next to me on my left, it is also up so I reach up and back many times a day, often for my two office mates, too. It is this motion I can no longer do. I've been advocating for a counter height desk where I can stand at the computer, leaving the printer at desk height would fix the problem.

I used to leave my weed whacker on the back porch and had something chew on the gas line. You had to flex the line to see the slits in it. I'm pretty sure it was either a raccoon or opossum.
You're right. It does make you wonder.
