Clean Grease Off Cabinets – Spray with Stain Solver
George used Stain Solver to clean grease off his kitchen cabinets. Here’s what he wrote to us:
“Just wanted to let you know I followed the instructions you provided to clean the grease from atop the cabinets in the kitchen and it cleaned beautifully using your Stain Solver product. I’ve been purchasing your products for years now and always have been happy with the results.”
I told George to mix up a solution, put it in a simple spray bottle and spritz the grease pretty well. I then told him to WAIT about 15 minutes and then wipe the cabinets with a solution of Stain Solver and a little bit of Dawn liquid dish soap. The grease comes off immediately.
Remove Green Algae From Roof – Easy with Stain Solver
Watch this video to see the way you and I would remove green algae from your roof:
Guess what we got here? Roof algae! What is it? Well, it’s a microscopic organism that feeds off of calcium carbonate or powdered limestone, that’s in the asphalt shingles.
Does it hurt the shingles? No!
Does that mean you need a new roof? No, but a lot of people have it and they want to clean it off.
Some roofs also have regular green algae that comes from trees and things that are near the houses. Well there’s a way to clean that off as well.
Here’s what you do. The way to clean off roof algae is to go ahead and mix up some oxygen bleach with water. It’s a powder. It’s safe. It doesn’t take the color out of the shingles, and it doesn’t hurt the shingles or vegetation or anything else near your home.
What you do is put it into a pump sprayer. Spray it on the roof, and you need to keep the roof wet with the solution for about ten or fifteen minutes.
The oxygen bleach starts to go ahead and attack the roof algae. It does its best to kill it and take away the stains.
Take a scrub brush, lightly scrub the shingles. Apply more solution if you have to to get a nice workable solution. Then once the shingles are clean, you go ahead and take a hose and just rinse the roof off.
It’s really that simple. Okay, this roof’s going to need a second application. Maybe even a third one. It was extra dirty.
Now there’s a couple of safety tips I want to tell you about. When working on a roof, first off, all roofs are slippery. When you get them wet. they’re even more slippery. And when you put on oxygen bleach, they are even more slippery. So make sure you’re very careful. Wear some good sturdy gym shoes that give you good traction. Also try to work on the roofs when it’s cooler, maybe in the morning, or on a cloudy overcast day. Never try to work when it’s extremely hot and extremely sunny. It makes the oxygen bleach evaporate too fast.
Be careful if you’re trying to clean roof algae off your roof.

Stain Solver Saves White Shirts from Cranberry Juice
Peggy Sparrow, who lives in Illinois, wrote to me:
“I just wanted to let you know Stain Solver saved my white sleeveless top as well as my son’s and husband’s clothes last week. We were visiting our son Peter at the University of Dayton for parents’ weekend and while at breakfast, our waitress spilled a full-to-the-brim glass of cranberry juice all over us.
Peter was sure his favorite shirt was ruined, but I told him I’d take his clothes home and work on them. Stain Solver to the rescue—it got the stains our of both my husband’s and son’s clothes. They were quite impressed! Unfortunately, I got to work immediately and didn’t take pictures of their clothes, but you can see how it cleaned my favorite white top.”
Stain Solver is both fabric and color-safe. You get the BEST RESULTS by soaking the entire garment overnight in a solution of Stain Solver.
