I scrape off most of the bacon grease then put it in a dishwasher. The residue doesn't feel very greasy, it has kind of a powder feel to it. There is only residue on the cookwares, and no residue on all other plates. The cookwares are a nonstick pan and a silicone coated turner. It happened with two different brands of bacon. I'm using finish powerball tablets.
I don't have a dishwasher, so I do dishes by hand, but there is something I've noticed that might help--when I have something very greasy, I sometimes find it hard to get it comepletely clean after the first washing, washing it a second time right away doesn't work much better, I have to wash it, let it completely dry, and then wash it again. Perhaps putting the items with residue through a second cycle will work.
Instead of applying soap to a sponge and then scrubbing the dish apply liquid dish soap directly to the pan and massage gently with your hand. This should help remove remaining residue.
