Hi everyone! I've got a kitchen appliance question for you all. No matter what we've used to clean our deep fryer, a Cool Daddy, it still feels gummy to the touch. Simple Green has been the most effective cleanser but not perfect. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all!

Not silly at all, Judy! The outside is plastic and we can't seem to get it cleaned thoroughly.

Thank you, Judy! I have old fleece sheets to cut up for dust rags. They're very soft.

Hi Kathy! I used this method on a bunch of my appliances recently (stainless and not), and it worked great: Also, you could try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

Thank you, Christina. Your babies, all three, are just adorable!

Magic eraser will work, but might cloud/mark the plastic.

Zep Heavy-Duty Citrus Degreaser will remove the tacky residue. It’s available at Home Depot in 1 gal. jugs . . . a bit pricey at $11.47/gal. It’s also great for cleaning outdoor equipment such as mowers, weed eaters, etc. as it removes grease and grass stains. It’s also great for pressure washing as it doesn’t have harsh chemicals that can damage a pump.

Hi Cathy, I have a metal deep fryer and the same thing happens to ours on the outside. It's sticky goop that wont come off even with soap and water or soaking. It sounds like the advice your getting is to use a degreaser cleanser. I will have to try this. Thanks for posting this question!

Just read the article that Baking Nana shared. I will have to first try baking soda paste on it. Thanks Baking Nana.

I have recently re-discovered Murphy's Oil Soap. I used it on our deep fryer and the gummy stuff came right off. Took a few applications to get down to the shine but not hard to do. I keep a spray bottle of water mixed with about 1/4 cup Murphy's to wipe down my range hood and stainless appliances daily. NO streaks, cuts grease and smells clean.
