How to Clean Cooking Oil Splatter


Cooking oil may help you create fantastic meals; however, oil can be messy, splattering everything in near vicinity including your walls, flooring and clothing. If you are looking for a way to remove cooking oil splatter, look no further. A few tips can help you clean up the mess.

Things You'll Need

  • Fine kitty litter
  • Paper towels
  • Iron
  • Dishwashing soap
  • Baking soda
  • Old toothbrush
  • Cornstarch
  • Clean up oil splatter on your wooden deck after outdoor cooking by covering the area with fine kitty litter. Allow the litter to sit until all of the oil has been absorbed, replacing with a fresh coat if necessary. While it may take a bit of time, the litter will soak up the oil without causing damage to your wood deck.

  • Remove oil splatter from your tile or linoleum floors by covering the area with two or three layers of paper towels. Place a warm iron on top of the towels, moving constantly over the surface. When you begin to see spots of oil on the paper towels, replace with fresh towels. When no oil soaks into the paper, the job is done.

  • Dampen clothing with oil splatter stains and wring out the excess water. Make a paste by placing a small amount of liquid dishwashing soap in a dish and adding enough baking soda to thicken the soap. Dip an old toothbrush into the paste and work it into oil splatter stains in your clothing using circular motions. Launder as usual.

  • Get rid of those pesky oil splatter marks on the walls around your stove with a bit of cornstarch and water. Place some cornstarch in a dish and add a little bit of water while stirring, only adding enough water to make a thick paste and then apply the paste evenly to the stained area. Allow the paste to dry and then carefully brush off. The cornstarch will draw the oil out of the wall and leave it looking good as new.
