    Did the article not make out bacon was the worst culprit? Not too many additives in that.

    Proper solution - replace kitchen and buy takeaways from now on.

    Thank you for all the interesting replies.

    I was washing the walls today in preparation for painting, with sugar soap, so tried that, which worked.

    I went through a few of those foam pad things though, but cupboard tops all spick and span now.

    As somebody mentioned, I too thought about putting paper down, so did so, laying a few coins to keep it flat.

    We actually do have a extractor hood, but my wife didn't always use it ... she will in future .. I'll make sure of that.

    Regards to all :D

    Have you thought of trying sugar soap. It's a very good degreaser.

    What't that type of soap you can get, that's named after sugar? I hear that that's good.
