Cleaning Up After a Grease Fire

"Any suggestions on cleaning up smoke damage from a grease fire in the kitchen?" --iVillager lorelei13


To remove smoke and grease from painted surfaces, make a solution of starch in water, and paint it on. After it's dried, rub with a soft brush or a clean cloth. This removes stains without harming paint.

On oak, use a strong mixture of Spic & Span. When dry, it will looked stripped. Just buff it with soft towels and it will be as good as new.

Baking soda and water will clean smoke and grease off other surfaces.
