Sticky, oily grease is without a doubt the most annoying thing about cooking. But there’s is a simple solution.
Cooking can be a very fun activity, but it is always followed by the menace of dirty dishes. While most of us regard to doing the dishes as hard and annoying, we can all agree that it is worse when your pots and pans are covered in grease.
Grease is the byproduct of cooking fatty foods or using oily products. Due to its hydrophobic nature, it is hard to get rid of grease stains once they stick and dry on a surface.

While there are some really strong detergents you can buy from the store, they are usually corrosive, toxic and smell bad. However, using a few household materials you can get rid of grease stains quick and easily.
If your pots and pans are still oily and sticky after scrubbing with soap and hot water, follow these steps:
Have a worn-out sponge in reach, because you will want to throw it out once you’re done.

Sprinkle baking soda all over the pot/pan and add a bit of vinegar. Use the sponge to scrub and lather the sticky surface, then leave it to soak for a couple of hours.
Once the grease has become softer, use the sponge again to scrub it all off, then wash it with soap and warm water as you would usually.
You can use the same method to clean grease inside your over. However, it would work better if you mix the baking soda and vinegar into a spray bottle.
