How to get oil and grease stains out of clothes. I can wear the other half of my wardrobe again!!

The combination of cooking grease, steam, and regular old dust creates a sticky residue on your kitchen's surfaces. Clean up grease splatters from your walls, range hood, and cabinets by washing them with a sponge dipped in undiluted white vinegar. Use another sponge soaked in water to rinse, then wipe dry with paper towels. Tip: Don't forget the top of your fridge, which can get greasy as well. Source: Woman's Day
