11) Stove top grates
However, it’s not actually the liquid that gets rid of the grease – it’s the fumes! Of course, inhaling fumes is not good, which is why a plastic zipper bag is your best friend.
Put the grate into the baggie, making sure to leave a pocket of air so the fumes can circulate, and then let it soak overnight.
