Cif stainless steel cleaner - does it work?

I'm sure this post is unsurpassed in sheer yawn-worthiness, but I need a tough cleaner for our stainless steel hob splashback. It gets wiped with a hot soapy cloth every day, but is nevertheless developing a build-up of grease around the edges.

What cleaner would work best? The special Cif one, or maybe a cream cleaner (or would that be too abrasive?)

Overpriced nonsense if you ask me. Get some el cheapo value range biological washing powder from the shops. Mix into a paste with boiling water (stir with a spoon not your hand ), paint it on with a brush, leave for an house, wipe off with kitchen towel and then wash over with soapy water, all the grease will be eaten by the enzymes in the washing powder and it'll also dissolve any limey deposits from the water you have been wiping it with for ages.

You are posting on a SCRUBBER thread Crookshanks!

No-one is answering my other thread I'm on the unanswered and unloved list (sob)

SH - btw that wasn't to imply that you were a scrubber in any way. But to deter Nikki from telling you how clean her kitchen is in comparison to my palace of grime

SH - not sure how good it is at removing grease, but a bit of baby oil will make your stainless steel lovely and shiny and streak free, once you've got the worst of the grease off.

According to my hairdresser it's the business for her stainless steel fridge

WMMC - lol. I thought word had got out. That's a great tip re: the washing powder.

Jojay - I'm already a fan of the baby-oil. So satisfying isn't it?

I use lemon juice and vinegar on mine.
