Cleaning Products

Greased Lightning Review & Giveaway

4:31 PM

 
Well folks, the holiday season is upon us and that means one thing. Cooking, baking, parties and cleaning. I think we all enjoy the first three in that category...but it is the cleaning that presents a challenge. Whenever guests come to my house I clean before they arrive and then I will clean after they leave. Have you ever noticed that cleaning up after people leave is more work than the cleaning before they come? I do!!! Especially if the guests have small children. I think another huge part of cleaning comes into play when you cook and bake. How many of you have a grease-splattered stove? My hand is raised here. My husband loves to cook and unfortunately, he is not the greatest when it comes to cleaning up afterwards. We both cook, but I am the main cleaner afterwards.
So, if you are looking for a product to help you tackle your greasy messes and cleaning challenges than listen up! I have a product to introduce to you today that you are going to LOVE!!! Greased Lightning is a multi-purposed cleaner that is powerful enough to use on mildew, soap scum and the tough grease that gathers on your stove and microwave.

Here is a bit more about the fabulous product...


The Greased Lightning family of super-strength degreaser products tackle today's cleaning needs. Our multi-purpose products can be used throughout the home and beyond - from kitchens and bathrooms to garages and patios.

Since the launch of our flagship product in 1985, we have worked to create innovative cleaning products based on feedback we gain from you, our customers. Our products are developed with you in mind and are designed to provide superior cleaning and degreasing power to help save you valuable time and money.


What I really love about Greased Lightning is that I can use it basically anywhere. It is hard to find a product that is suitable for the kitchen and the living room carpets too.
So, for this review I was sent a bottle of Greased Lightning Multi Purpose cleaner and I knew right away what I would be tackling first. My stove. You see, the section on which the knobs are gets VERY greasy and dirty. It is always a huge task to clean it and usually the grease smears rather than coming off. Here is a quick shot of what I am talking about...
 
Can you see the mess I have to clean up here? Yeah...exciting. So, I first removed the knobs and sprayed the surface down with my Greased Lightning.
When it came to cleaning it and wiping it down I wore rubber gloves to protect my skin. It isn't necessary, but recommended. It is also recommended that you ventilate the area in which you are working. I used paper towels to clean up as I wanted to test the strength of the cleaner. If it was a GOOD cleaner, it would come right up with little scrubbing. If not, I would have to use a stronger cloth. This next picture is from ONE SWIPE over part of the surface...look at how black it is!!!
Remember, that is from one swipe over the surface. Can you believe how much came up? I was immediately impressed. All it took was a bit more wiping (not scrubbing) to clean the rest of my stove. Here are my "after" pictures...

It definitely looks MUCH better, don't you think? I was really happy with how it turned out. To clean the knobs I simply put them in the sink, sprayed them with Greased Lightning and then wiped them down with paper towels. The grease came right off effortlessly. WOW.
As you can probably imagine, I am in love. Yes, this is my new number one cleaner for the kitchen. I have not tried it in other areas of the house but am looking forward to doing so soon. Greased Lightning can be purchased at major retailers, hardware stores and do-it-yourself stores across the country. The average retail price is $4-$5. 

So, in my opinion...Greased Lightning is a wonderful product. My stove looks so great and the hardened grease came up so easily. I was impressed that I was able to use paper towels and not scouring pads or tougher cloths. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for the perfect cleaner for this holiday season. No hostess should be without it! You won't be disappointed with Greased Lightning's performance!!
