    It has a rough side that is great for scrubbing. It got my stove clean almost clean and it was way worse than yours. Steel wool is good, but is more abrasive and will probably leave scratches. I've heard (but not tried) that cream of tartar and vinegar is better than bicarb and vinegar for cleaning and will lift gunk off a stove top.

    A trick I used to do before kids, was make a paste of bicarb and water and leave it on say the bottom of the oven or the stovetop for a week. The baked on cr@p just wiped away. With kids, there is no way I could have the oven or stove out of action for a week.

    The grease stains sound like they are coming out of the washing machine. Use washing up detergent to get the grease stains off the clothes. I've never had a washing machine do that before, and I'm not sure running vinegar through a wash will fix it. Vinegar will get built up gunk out of pipes. I would have thought, grease stains were a symptom of a mechanical problem.
    The oil stains aren't black or anything just clear, almost like olive oil or something. Thanks for the detergent tip! Do I soak it or just put it on for a few minutes before I pop it in for a wash?

    I actually don't have vinegar in the house so I'll need to purchase some tomorrow.

    Bleach can't penetrate porous materials so it only kills the surface Mould not what is below it, so it depends on the surface the Mould is on

    I just squirt a bit on the stain, rub it in a bit, rinse then chuck in the wash. I have a front loader and it doesn't cope with too much suds.

    OH MY GOD. Life changing. Literally cannot believe how easy this was!!!! I was sceptical, but it all just washed away 😱

    Does anyone have any idea how would I get biro off laminate?

    I had a piece of paper I had written on sitting on the laminate bench. DD put a container of water on it (which I hadn't realised), which was left there overnight. In the morning when I emptied the container, I found the wet paper under it and ink transferred on to the bench.

    Thanks,

    I've had great success with this stuff and biro.

    It's also fabulous for getting oil out of things.

    anything that's got burned on food/cooking debris or anything that's quite dirty/too hard to scrub myself I leave to soak overnight in dishwashing powder and water. it's as good as new the next day. added bonus is your sink will be sparkling too.
