This is not a full batch.  I just wanted to make sure that it worked before putting together a full batch.

So far I am very happy with the results.  The hood over my stove is always the worst place for greasy build up.

It wiped clean easily and left it shiny and smooth to the touch.  You need to ignore the rust spot, this is an old hood.

I hope you will give this a try and let me know your thoughts.
