How to clean 'film' above gas stove?

jlt37869February 26, 2011

I have a gas stove (first time ever) and I love it for cooking, however I've noticed that over the stove I have a "film" on my microwave and cabinets that I can't seem to remove. I assume this is from gas exhaust/vapors?!? I don't cook very often and when I do, it is very basic stuff (boiling water or re-heating something simple). For example, I have never "fried" anything on the stove top and I use very little oil when cooking.

Any ideas as to what this "sticky" film is and how to best remove it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I use Simple Green because it's a great degreaser & doesn't harm surfaces. It's also biodegradable & not expensive. I get it at Target & grocery stores.

I know cooking with gas is desirable because the heat is higher & it can be controlled easily, but yes, gas really makes the walls greasier than electric.
