I don’t know about you, but any time something boils over on the stove, I want to tear my hair out. You need to finish cooking, but you know that by the time you do that, you’ll have a burned-on mess. Or maybe someone else was doing the cooking and got food all over the top of your stove. Either way, it’s a major pain. But thanks to this stovetop-cleaning method, it doesn’t have to ruin your day. Next time you need to clean the removable parts of your stovetop, try the easy way!
1. What You’ll Need
Everything you need to clean your removable stove parts should be available at your local dollar store if you don’t already have it. Grab some gallon-size zipper bags and a bottle of ammonia. That’s it.
You don’t need a ton of it. A good splash should be enough to soak your stove grates. Pour a little in, then take your stove parts in the bag and seal it up. You can likely fit a grate and maybe another piece or two in each bag. Let everything soak in the bags overnight.
In the morning, all you really need to do is pull each piece of the bag one at a time and use a damp or soapy sponge to wipe the grimy stuff away. After soaking in ammonia all night, that’s all you’ll probably need to do.
4. For the Stubborn Parts
If you’ve got stubborn grease or gunk, make a paste with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Just make it a good consistency and use a soft toothbrush or rag and scrub well. You can use this on your stove parts and on the stovetop. Now the next time you entertain, you won’t have to be embarrassed about your stovetop.
