Kitchen Fat Degreaser


Recommended Posts

Investigating behind the extractor hood above our hobs there’s an incredibly heavy/thick layer of old sticky cooking fat.

Kitchen cleaners and vinegar don’t seem to touch it.  I’m wondering if DOSBODers have any tips for industrial cleaning fluids that might shift it..  preferably without dissolving either steel or wood lacquer?

Sounds like something you’d use for disposing of bodies..  am I going to end up on a database?  :ph34r:

It's precisely what you might use. Nasty alkaline. It's probably what a lot of degreasers contain. Turns fat to soap, so then it will wash away with water.

Thanks Carl..  remind me to buy you a beer if we ever end up a DOSBODs meet!

Works like magic.. !

Yes, alcohols will dissolve fat. I thought your problem may be a bit more severe.

Dirty bastard. Clean it more often and you wont get this issue. :Sick1:

We have a cupboard above the extractor fan and it gets a bit manky.  We needed a kitchen person out to replace the fan and he recommended "tec 7" cleaner. Apparently you can get it from b&q. 

Wife swears by it and she is hard to please in the cleaning stakes.
