Weird greasy residue on the leather surfaces in my car

I went to my car the other day, and all of the leather surfaces (not seats, they're cloth) have some black, greasy residue on them. What the hell [more inside]

What grease/lube can I use to make my oven rack slide better?

We have a relatively cheap oven model with a wire rack that slides into the oven against the porcelain walls of the oven; no bearings or anything. It's always stuck a little bit, pulling it in and out — but since we did a self-clean cycle last week, there seems to be even more friction. Is there a food-safe high-temperature grease or other lubricant that I can use to make the rack slide better?

Voluminous grease dump on clothing: what to do?

Carrying a serving dish full of pot roast and all the delicious associated juices. Slipped out of my hands, exploded on floor. Crockery shards, meat and grease everywhere. My pants - polyester wool blend, dry clean only - what to do until/in prep for dry cleaner? Anything? Soak? Blot? My shoes - brown leather tasseled loafers. Great splotches of grease. Ruined? This just sucks.

Will my cat be ok after eating grease?

Zula got up on the counter this afternoon and ate about 1/3 cup of grease from ground beef and bacon. She's been pretty lazy since then, not eating dinner (no surprise). Can cats "overdose" on grease? Is there an amount that is considered toxic? Google told me about Pancreatitis so I know to watch for vomiting. I can call my vet in the morning.

Grease is the word

So I've landed myself in a bit of a predicament. Last year my wife had to undergo chemotherapy and was worried about the loss of her hair, so we went out and bought her a wig. I jokingly said that if she didn't need to use it I wear it to a fancy dress party. Thankfully, she didn't need to use it but that has left me having to follow through with the promise. We've now been invited to a fancy dress party and my wife has decided we're going to go as Danny & Sandy from Grease, but with her being Danny and me being Sandy. Looking for ideas of how I get a Sandy 'like' outfit.

Appropriate grease for bike jockey wheel overhaul

Bike maintenance and grease options: I'm going to be cleaning and lubing my drive train as throughly as possible this afternoon, but I'm not sure if the lubricants I have on hand are appropriate for things like greasing the jockey wheel, or if there's an appropriate automotive grease that can substitute.

So I have a very ditry commercial oven

I've recently acquired a Vulcan oven from a restaurant that was closing down. To say it is dirty is an understatement. I've used lye based cleaners, a pressure washer, scrub brushes, and anything else I had lying around. It still isn't clean. It is mostly stainless steel, with some cast iron here and there. I have it sitting outside for the time being, because I don't want to attract rodents and bugs into the house. I really need to get this thing clean soon so I can get the propane tank installed. This oven was in use for 8 years without having a real cleaning. The grease was dripping off in the heat of the sun. But it is still quite grimy. Any advice? Nothing is too drastic. Help!
