I just discovered a household degreaser that everyone needs to have on hand! From grease on walls to microwaves and even blinds, you’ll keep finding new things you need it for. Watch our oven test to see how Zep compares to another famous brand and what takes off the most grease. See how to clean with a degreaser.
Before, I always used all-purpose cleaners that did an okay job. But most of the time, I just did everything I could to prevent grease.
When I broke our microwave handle and got a new microwave, I discovered hidden grease underneath that needed a major cleaning. This is a job for a degreaser, for sure! But a degreaser has many more uses than cleaning up your kitchen grease.

Zep Cleaner & Degreaser
For generations, Zep was known as a commercial degreaser, but now they’re known as a household degreaser too. The brand has been around since 1927 – so over 80 years now.
This product works particularly well on tough grease and grime in your kitchen or garage.
What I liked best about it in our tests is how quickly Zep cleans virtually any hard or soft surface, and it’s safe on delicate materials such as upholstery. The next best thing is that it powers out stains and grease with NO harsh fumes. A lot of heavy-duty cleaners are hard on the sinuses!
