How To - Get the Grease Off! My Secret Weapon

Good Morning Friends,
Today I'm going to share with you one of my secret weapons.  It is GOJO.  It is a gritty hand cleaner.  I've found that it works for much more than just hands.

(I'm not getting any reimbursement from GOJO and this is NOT an advertisement for it, but sometimes I think I should buy stock in the company as we like it that much.) 
We keep a bottle of this under our kitchen sink because it is so handy.  I get mine in the super size at Sam's Club or Costco.  I'm going to tell you what I use it on but...

*Because this has a grit to it, test it in an inconspicuous location first to make sure it doesn't leave a scratch.*

I use it to clean the grill, both the outside of it and the grates.  The outside of the grill gets plenty of cooked on grease splatters and this takes it right off.  I'm not a clean freak and I don't clean the grill often, but if we are having company over for a patio party, I want the grill to look decent.

My kitchen stove is gas and I use GOJO to clean the cast iron burners.  I also use it to clean the knobs on the stove.  I've used it in the oven as well, but I'm sure to use a wet rag and make sure it's all removed before running the oven.  GOJO does have an orange fragrance to it.

I use it to clean the bottoms of my skillets from time to time (maybe once a year) when I'm thinking they are looking disgusting.  My skillets and pots hang from a pot rack in the kitchen so they are in plain view all the time.

My microwave is directly above my stove.  I've used GOJO to clean the outside of the microwave and get the grease splatters off of it.

I use it on my clothes.  Yes, you heard me right.  If I spill something on my clothes, I rub a bit into the spot and rinse it out.  Most of my clothing is t-shirts and jeans material.  I've not tried it on any delicate fabrics.

I've even use this on the carpet when the kids spilled some raviolis with tomato sauce.  (don't ask me why they were eating on the living room carpet)  It took the stain out with a little elbow grease.

When using it on my cast iron burners or the grill,  just rub it on with a terry cloth rag.  I don't even wash it off of those items, I just wipe it off with a clean rag.

I have been trying to switch over to all "green" cleaners, but having a bottle of this on hand wouldn't be bad.
