If you've been avoiding cleaning your range top because it's gross and time consuming, then consider doing it once you learn about these tips and tricks from this article. Usually people go to all sorts of extents to get their appliances clean, and sometimes they are the worse things to clean since they accumulate all of the cooked and burnt pieces of food. The best way to clean them is to keep them clean, a quick wipe down every day goes a long way.
Although, sometimes life happens and you don't get the chance to upkeep your cleaning as you would like to, in which case you need tools in your arsenal that will get the job done without too much hassle. In this tutorial you get to see how you can take the entire stove top apart so that you can clean in all of the hard to reach places. The cleaning ingredients of choice are the good old baking soda, and some DIY all purpose cleaner that you can make by following the link on the site.
You're pretty much taking everything apart, soaking the big heavy metal parts in some soapy water, and wiping the rest clean using the ingredients mentioned. From there the rest of that caked on food is history. Does your range top need a cleaning? If it does then consider this as your reason to stop procrastinating.
For starters you will want to start by spraying down your oven top with one of your favorite kitchen cleaners. You could try making a do-it-yourself citrus spray, that is good on busting up the oil and baked on pieces of food. It helps to let the lemon cleaner recipe sit for a few minutes before you start wiping with a microfiber cloth, or clean paper towel. Then you can slowly and carefully remove the burners/covers off your oven top, making sure not to force any parts that don't budge. Clean underneath these areas. Then put the grates and burner covers in your kitchen sink and let them soak with one of your favorite dish soaps. While those are soaking you can wipe the electrical burners with a soapy cloth that is damp, to remove the baked on pieces of food.
Now for the areas that are really messy, try sprinkling on some baking soda followed by the citrus spray. This will help to form a reaction, that will work on the grime making it a lot easier to wipe away the dirt with a soft cloth or paper towel. Now you can remove the oven knobs and clean underneath with a soapy, damp cloth. Don't forget to also clean the knobs in some soapy water. When all of the stove is clean and try, you can put back all the knobs, gas burner covers and grates and enjoy what a clean stove looks like! If your stove is stainless steel, you will want to take a few minutes to clean and shine the steel with a microfibre cloth, it makes a difference when everything is shiny and new looking again.
It goes to show you don't need toxic cleaners to get your range top looking like new again. Some natural ingredients, the right cloths and some elbow grease are all it takes.
