Elbow Grease is one of the most popular degreasers and cleaners in the UK, making light work of dirt, grease and grime. Specially formulated with deep cleaning action, Elbow Grease has gained a cult following among cleaning hobbyists and has been described as ‘the only cleaner you’ll ever need’.

From the kitchen, worktops and kitchens to carpets, fabrics and outdoor, cleaning enthusiasts can use Elbow Grease to lift tough and stubborn stains from various surfaces and materials to leave a sparkling finish.

Here is a comprehensive list of areas and rooms around the home where Elbow Grease can be highly effective during household cleaning tasks.


Elbow Grease brings a bustling and energetic cleaning force to the kitchen, cleaning kitchen appliances and cupboards. Tackling fine mists of grease and residue build-up, Elbow Grease leaves appliances and kitchen cabinets looking like new.

For pots and pans, Elbow Grease helps homeowners save scrubbing time with its powerful cleaning action. After 15 minutes’ worth of application, Elbow Grease leaves a sparkling finish, even on the bottom of pans and casserole dishes with tough burns and thick grime.

In busy kitchens which are used daily to prepare food and meals, cooker hoods and filters are often neglected, despite harbouring lots of grease and grime. Elbow Grease can be used for cleaning stainless steel hoods and washable mesh filters to restore appearance. Removable mesh filters can be completely immersed in basins or buckets with Elbow Grease, before rinsing and leaving to dry.

Kitchen tiles often bear the brunt of splashes of cooking oils and food debris, which can build-up hefty deposits of grease and grime over time. Elbow Grease helps to revive kitchen tiles, helping to revitalise colour and texture to improve home décor.


Elbow Grease is perfect for a total oven clean. From hobs and grill racks to the over door and walls, ovens amass frightening levels of gunk, dirt, grease and grime, and often need a thorough clean. Cleaning enthusiasts can spray Elbow Grease around the oven and leave for 30 minutes, which should be sufficient for greasy and grimy racks and trays, depending on the extent required!

If there isn’t a steam cleaner on hand, some Elbow Grease and a stiff broom is an adequate substitute. Once weeding is completed, spray the patio and leave for around an hour. With a stuff brush and water, simply ring and scrub any oil or paint stains to leave a clear finish.

Clothes & Fabrics

Perhaps surprisingly, Elbow Grease is noted for its ability to remove stains from clothing and fabric. For grubby collars or cuffs, stained white shirts or deodorant marks, simply spray on some All Purpose Degreaser and throw into the washing machine!

Any spill or stain on the carpet is distressing, especially given how much household fork out for carpets!
