How to clean that oily, sticky residue off of appliances or just clean stainless steel. I wish i knew this a long time ago. 1 tbsp of cream of tartar, a few drops of water. Makes a milk like solution. Scrub with sponge. Wipe off with damp paper towel
As recommended by a professional painter: to paint over any surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP: Easy Surface Prep' available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Saves hours of work!
