A grease-free kitchen is an experience that you are looking for. The most common feedback is how to prevent greasy stove and sticky floors.

Grease is stubborn on metals (aluminum and stainless steel), and your tiles, our professional housekeepers recommend the following 3 step solution

Step 1: dilute dishwashing soap with water ratio of 20% dishwashing soap:80% water to create a cleaning solution. (for extra strength, add a small dosage of baking soda to the solution,***small amounts of baking soda are not harmful to natural stones)

Step 2: use a microfiber towel and wipe the kitchen hood and tiles with the cleaning solution (20% dishwashing soap: 80% water). Let it soak for 5 minutes.

Step 3: use a clean microfiber towel with clean water, and wipe dry the kitchen hood, and tiles. And you will have a kitchen free from grease (this exercise needs to be done weekly or bi-weekly to ensure that no stubborn grease is formed. (prevents grease smelling kitchen too!)

Pro-tip #4: The dishwashing liquid

Never skip on dishwashing liquid; it is a hygiene and household essential.

Furthermore: A quality dishwashing liquid may prove to be more healthy and safe in the long run.

When purchasing a dishwashing liquid, always choose naturally derived dishwashing soap such as methods, it’s expensive however it will be immediately less harmful for your hands while you do your dishwashing chores without gloves.


Always wash and rinse your dishes individually to ensure the highest removal of dishwashing liquid.
