A Review of Greased Lightning Cleaner

January 25, 2012


I just LOVE my new cast iron sink! But the thing stains SO easily and it’s such a pain to clean. So when the dudes from Greased Lightning took pity on me and offered to send me a free bottle of their cleanser, I jumped at the chance.

See how pitiful my sink is. Be glad I spared you photos of the bathtub.


I sprayed on the Greased Lightning. The sprayed is impressive. The stuff came right out. You housewives know what I mean about some of those sprayers– you have to painfully chugchugchug to get anything out of the nozzle. I have small hands and “sprayer quality” is important to me, especially for large jobs like the huge kitchen sink or bathtub. The Greased Lightning sprayer gets my official stamp of approval. The smell of the product is nice, too. It’s not acrid or overpowering at all. Has a very light lemony scent. Unlike some of those other nuclear-waste-type products, you can use Greased Lightning without a gas mask!

I sprayed it on. I scrubbed with a washcloth for a few minutes. All the congealed goop in the sink washed out immediately, but the stains remained. Hm.

I scrubbed with a nylon brush for about 3 minutes. Hot water. The stains came out! The sink is beautiful again.



According to the label, Greased Lightning is best used for really greasy, grimy stuff found in and on microwaves, stove tops, and stove vents. It removes dirt from outdoor patio furniture, too! It can remove red wine, pet stains and some laundry and carpet stains. The best use of all, in my opinion, is that is removes soap scum from showers and tubs. I HATE SCRUBBING the tub. I will procrastinate until the tub is caked with 2 inches of soap scum. Well, OK OK I’m exaggerating. A little.

Anyway, I like Greased Lightning. I will keep it around the house for sure. You can buy the product at Walmart, Home Depot, and Dollar General, to name a few major stores. If you want a coupon to try it out, go to the Greased Lightning website and print some coupons! You can also learn more about Greased Lighting on their Facebook page. Try it! You will like it!

    I’ve tried it, it didn’t help my oven. I’m beginning to think nothing will get that crud off of it as it does not have a self cleaning option. I’m the cleaner and I suck.

    I will be checking this out! We have horrible rusty water that stains my sinks.

    Hey, did you get a new stove last year? I have to buy one and am trying to decide between black and stainless. I am leaning towards a black Frigidaire.

    Definitely something I have to look into… for that soap scum in the shower!!! 🙂 I used to have a cast iron sink and couldn’t wait to get a stainless steel one because of the stains!!!

    Blueyes: For some things, your only recourse is the blowtorch. Good luck. lol

    Karen: Our stove is WORKING! I can’t believe it survived the fire! My stove is a Kenmore ceramic glass top. It’s been through two moves and a huge renovation. We got it in 1997. I’m pretty impressed!

    Susi: THANK YOU for the award! You are so sweet. 🙂 I had a stainless steel and while it was so easy to clean it just looked out of place in my old house. I hope you get that soap scum out! 😉
