How Do You Get Grease Off A Glass Splashback?

In most kitchens, grease is an inevitable part of its daily use. This is particularly true for households with members who love oily delights like stir-fries and chips. The buildup of grease on a glass splashback doesn’t have to be difficult to clean, in fact, it is much easier to clean than traditional tiles and grout. So, how do you get grease off a glass splashback?  Below are 5 tips to help you with that:

1. Clean Splatters of Grease Immediately

Right after cooking, you should take care of the splatters of grease on your splashback. Leaving the grease to sit will make it sticky and more difficult to remove. Ensure you have a damp cloth on hand to wipe away the grease as you cook.

2. Use Non-abrasive Cleaner for stubborn marks

Metal-based scourers are not good for a glass splashback. Therefore, for stubborn marks use a small quantity of a non-abrasive cleaner, such as dish detergent, on a lint-free cloth and rub it gently over the splashback in a circular motion, then use a clean, damp cloth to wipe it off in a side to side motion.
