I started out using an SOS pad on mine, which worked great except for the crevices I couldn't get the pad into. I followed up with soft scrub and a brush and was able to get into all of the crevices, and it looks brand new!!

I had the Deep Fryer Cleaning Nightmare From Hell. I had to do a complete disassemble of my deep fryer. Goo was every ware. I tried a number of cleaning products and all the elbow grease that I had the patience for. Nothing worked. The lite stuff came off but not the goo. Until I tried dishwasher detergent. I mixed about 1/2 tsp. to a cup of hot water for soaking the small parts and hardware. I let them soak for a couple of days (that was mostly procrastination) but it worked. And I soaked the larger parts in the sink (3-4in. of hot water) with about the same amount dishwasher detergent as you would use in the dishwasher. I used an old toothbrush and Qtips to get into the places where normal scrubbing could not reach. Be careful that you don't use anything that will scratch the Teflon or anything on the outside of the casing. Good Luck.

PS: You'll still need to use some elbow grease.

How to clean oven racks

If you mean the straight-in-a-line-parallel-stainless-steel-wire-rod type, we use these methods at home:
General all-round cleaning:
Oven-cleaner spray foam, left to soak to lift grease, then good sponge-down with water-damped cloth / sponge.
Stubborn gunk on racks:
Place racks in empty bath, spray/soak in oven cleaner, or..
pour or squirt engine cleaner / degreaser over entire rack surface, allow to work grease loose, then pour boiling hot water to rinse and dislodge fattiness and carbon.
Ordinary dry washing powder is high in caustic, so also works well.
'Handy-Andy' cream is quite high in ammonia among other unpronounceable chemicals for lifting stuck grease and oils.
Make a stiff, sticky paste of clothes-washing powder and water, then apply to a kitchen 'Zim', ie green scouring pad and mixed with lots of elbow-grease, can restore the racks to former glory.
Rinse well under running water to remove soap.
Otherwise 'bath' the racks in hottest geyser water with washing powder sprinkled on top to soak.
A stiff nylon brush helps to scrub the burnt bits away.

How do i remove film left on car windsheild after using cleaninng and polishing cloths from norwex

.dawn dish soap, hot water, micro fiber, and squeegee. And a dry towel. Mix in a bowl or container. Wipe the solution all over the windshield, use squeegee to dry and done. The oily residue is gone in one pass usually. The sufactants in dawn grab the oils. works great on the outside of the wind shield as well.

White residue left after using self cleaning feature - I can't remove it with soap and water and elbow grease. What would work? This looks awful!!!

The residue your seeing is the remains of whatever was left in the oven when you decided to creamate in. Grease, food, etc was basically turned to has and then powder coated into the metal. Bit of advice for the future though, avoid using self clean mode not only for the scenario you have, but for your bank account as well. The temperatures the oven reaches in self clean exceed that of which the oven cavity can handle letting heat pass upward, usually damaging the lock mechanism for sure, as well as the control board and touchpad.

How do you get Jalapeno Juice off hands it is burning????

Alternate your hands in two soaks:

1) Soak your hands in an acidic juice (Lemon, Lime, Orange, etc.) The acidity helps remove the oils from your skin. Try to work the juice onto your skin to help break up the oil layer. I usually keep my hands in each soak for a MINIMUM of five minutes.

2) Then rinse your hands with cool water, wash with a grease-cutting soap (I use Dawn).

3) Soak your hands in a baking soda mixture - 1 part baking soda to 3 parts water.

4) Rinse & wash your hands again.

Depending on how much oil you have on your hands, you may wish to repeat these steps a few times. If you do, it is important that you DO NOT reuse the soaks.....they will contain any of the hot oil they removed from your skin....reusing them just lets the oil get right back onto you, and defeats the entire process.

Wash out the bowls with a grease-cutting soap, rinse well, and then refill with the juice / baking soda mixtures.

Grease build up

I would run a small load with maybe a couple of dirty towels with some dish cleaning soap, particularly one with good grease removing capabilities. Also, be sure to use the hottest water setting you have available for this load.

Water leak from ice maker

The fill line internal to the freezer is likely frozen up from the elbow inward.. When the icemaker calls for fill...pressure builds up on the plastic tubing causing it to pop out of the elbow. Check the tube inside the freezer by removing icemaker and running a long thin screwdriver or a rigid wire up into the tube until you feel ice or the plastic elbow outside.

Clear ice, if present, by squeezing hot water in from freezer side with turkey baster until cleared and water comes out back.
