This has to be the single most boring thread I've ever started..blush

But someone please tell me how to get grease off the kitchen tiles.

I have tried

Sugar soap
Fairy liquid
Brillo pads

And still the tiles are all sticky.

What else can I Tey

Cilit Bang degreaser.

Leave it on for a good 20 mins & then wipe off. Wear rubber gloves - it degreases your hands as well!

Brilliant thanks you I shall get some tonight

A steam cleaner works, as do the magic sponges.

Gileswithachainsaw Tue 25-Oct-16 10:04:10

I did try the steam cleaner that didn't seem to work either.

What are magic sponges

One of those words I've looked at too long to be sure of the spelling!

I always use a damp cloth dipped in bicarbonate of soda. The bicarb acts as an abrasive. I find it very satisfying.

Old fashioned Jif (Cif) cream cleaner

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 26-Oct-16 09:51:03

Unfortunately there was no degreaser

Stupid supermarket...

I was all set and stupidly excited myself

Mcchickenbb41 Wed 26-Oct-16 09:53:08

What about Brillo pads

Mcchickenbb41 Wed 26-Oct-16 09:54:14

Sorry just read you tried that

magimedi Wed 26-Oct-16 09:59:13

Get thee to another emporium! grin

You can see what a dull life I lead atm. Am a bit housebound so degreasing threads are a lifeline grin

A solution of bio powder or liquid. I prefer liquid. Water tepid not hot.

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 26-Oct-16 10:03:39

That I can try. I can dig out the liquid I just binned as I don't use.

ASpiderInTheBath Wed 26-Oct-16 10:06:45

I use white vinegar, you an buy it in a spray bottle in wilko. I remember reading here that some people use car wax on their tiles, I imagine that would work well as it certainly removes the grease and grime from my car.

Aldi's Orange kitchen spray gets through mucky kitchen grease.
Use with a green sponge scourer.

magimedi Wed 26-Oct-16 18:55:42

Drums fingers on table....

Can't wait any longer.

OP - are you OK or are you sinking into a miasma of grease??


thenewaveragebear1983 Wed 26-Oct-16 19:00:23

I second Cillit band grease and sparkle - it's in the green bottle. Works like a charm!

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 26-Oct-16 19:02:04

I wasn't feeling too well today so no outing fir cilit bang. I do promise however to report back grin

JennyOnAPlate Wed 26-Oct-16 19:05:39

I find neat washing up liquid on a washing up sponge works pretty well with mine.

CurtainsforRonnie Wed 26-Oct-16 19:05:52

Gahhhh. Tell us where you live & we will deliver you some and scrub the walls thlwink

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 26-Oct-16 19:08:45

Now there's an offer I can't refuse...grin

Muddlingthroughtoo Wed 26-Oct-16 19:18:06

Can you scrape it off first with a paint scraper? Or a mixture of vinegar, star drops and water should do it.

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 26-Oct-16 19:22:32

It's not thick enough to scrape I don't think.

You can't even really see it it's just sticky....
