Salt and lime can be good for more than tequila—the combination also cuts through grease on stovetops and kitchen counters! To work the magic, sprinkle the area liberally with salt. Squeeze the juice from a lime over the salt, using as many fruits as necessary to thoroughly wet the area. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, then scrub with a rag or scrubber sponge. Wipe clean with paper towels or a damp cloth.
