How can I clean grease/grime off stovetop?

I've lived in my appt for 2 yrs. now, and when we moved in it wasnt in pristine condition, the stove looks like its from the '60's...LoL...but I still use it everyday. I wann know what exactly I can use to clean all that grease and grime off the stovetop. Ive tried baking soda, SOS scrubbers, and the spray and none of them take off the grease...what else is there that actually works

  • I have found the best product for that ... I use "Mean Green" or "Grease Lightening" - you can find it in most stores and it is pretty inexpensive ... works wonders for me!! GL

  • I use 409 and a toothbrush LOL. If that doesn't work I use Ajax/comet.

    Good luck :)

  • I use lemon juice and baking soda. I just mix it up and scrub with an old tooth brush.

  • White vinegar & water mixed 50/50. Spray on, give a minute or two to soak a bit, then wipe with a microfiber cloth.

  • Just like mom2aspclboy said,I use the same thing and it really works...I mix vinegar to my warm water in a bucket then I use it to clean the stove,the appliances and even to my floor tiles...Try it and you don't even have to buy those commercial produts...
