Perhaps one of the most daunting cleaning tasks is taking off encrusted grease. Whether it's a stove, a garage spill, or a tub, grease can be a nightmare to get off. Even with good grease-cutting soaps, if the grease has stood for any length of time it can take a lot of effort to scrub off. Enter CLR Grease Magnet. According to the manufacturer, Grease Magnet can remove grease of all kinds from surfaces ranging from concrete to tile to engine blocks. The CLR brand has a solid reputation, and is known for being able to tackle tough grime.

My car does not leak oil, and I have no tile surfaces, but one of the examples given on the package is a barbecue grill. My family has a second-hand barbecue that has not been thoroughly cleaned since before we got it, so that seemed like the perfect challenge. There are various safety warnings on the Grease Magnet bottle, especially to use gloves. CLR Grease Magnet is acid-based, not alkali-based like a detergent, so keep some baking soda around in case of spills or other accident to neutralize the acid. I cleaned the grill in the bathroom tub, so I also got to see how well the Grease Magnet cleaned up the mess there made by scrubbing the grill.
