found it at Ace Hardware. It is a biodegradable alkaline product. Don't know why so few places sell it.

I LOVE that stuff. It works great on stains on your clothes too. My husband is a truck driver and if you've ever tried to get fifth wheel grease out of clothes you'd know exactly what I'm talking about.

I used to buy Greased Lightning by the 5 gal jug. Sadly, Sam's Club stopped carrying it. It worked great on my floors and was easy to rinse off.

Grteased lightning is a completely different product from power dissolver. DPD is meant to remove cooked on food and fat stains from a pan. If you pan roast a piece of meat, you get some tan spots of oil around the inside edges. DPD softens that so you can take it off with a sponge.

Oh no! That's terrible! My Sam's Club still carries it. Check another Sam's Club or check with the manager of your Sam's Club and see if he can order it. I live south of Atlanta where we have about 10 or so Sam's Clubs. We like to visit different ones to see what they have.

Have you ever checked out Sam's Club Auction Site? We've gotten some AMAZING deals on there. We actually got a riding lawn mower from there...tax, shipping and delivered to the house for $950. The exact same mower was in HomeDepot for $1600(before tax)! Be careful though, it's addicting!

I seem to be getting a little off topic! Sorry!

Where were you when my DH owned his own truck?!?!?
The kids would step in glops of it left on the driveway and walk up my carpeted stairs with it.
Luckily my Uncle owns a carpet cleaning business.
Even more luckily the stupid semi now resides in Illinois.

After reading this, I bought 4 bottles of Dawn Power Dissolver at WalMart for $1.89 a bottle. It was in the dishwashing liquid area. I'm thinking it might be good for clean-ups in the oven without doing the entire thing.

I also use DPD for tough soap scum spots in the shower and tub. Seems to work much better than Tilex and such minus the bad smell of the typical bathroom products.
