It does!


If you pull out your appliances every so often...you dont end up with this

We just bought a house and I found this while cleaning. It was also on the side of the white cabinet that the stove was against....pooled up under the stove. The people who lived here before us must have liked to fry foods a lot. Ive never seen so much grease. To make it even more fun....the stuff that pooled up underneath had a nice collection of dog hair stuck in it. Ugghh. It took me forever to clean.

But with the power of Mr. Clean.....water/vinegar...and magic erasers...

TaDa!

That is freaking disgusting!! I'm glad you practice the pull out (and clean) method! It really helps to keep a nice clean home when you actually move things to clean behind and under them. LOL

Yeah, I don't ever do that. I'm always too afraid of damaging the appliances, especially because I don't own them!

lol My mom drilled it into me. I pull out the stove and fridge twice a year and clean. I dont fry food so its usually just dusty. That damn thing took me hours to clean!

 I can't do that with my stove, if I did, I'd break the gas line on it. DH hasn't gotten around to replacing it with a more flexible one, so I'm dreading the day we do get that done. Yuck.

I still did it when I rented. Unless somethings really wedged in, they come out pretty easily.
