Today I am going to help you with your kitchen stove. Most people do not like cleaning their stove because they think it is to hard to do. We can clean the most cooked on stove in about 20 mins. tops.
The first thing is to get your area ready. Make sure the sink is empty so that you have room to work. If you have a stove like the one here on the right these grates are really easy to clean if you fill your sink up with warm sudsy water. I recommend Dawn because it cuts the grease really fast. while these are soaking just take your sudsy towel and clean the inside of the stove. The suds and warm water will just clean this right up. And if you do it before going to bed it wont have time to get really hard. After you have cleaned the inside and have it looking all shiny just wipe all the knobs and outside surfaces. Take a dry towel and polish right away and you wont have any streaking.I always recommend microfiber cloths.

Now go to the sink and usually all you have do is wipe the grates with your sudsy towel rinse then dry before putting back in place. Even if it is really cooked on and hard just let them sit in hot sudsy water longer. The longer they sit the less you have to scrub.  You want to dry the grates before you put them back so that it doesn’t cause rust spots where they sit on the stove top. Also on your gas ranges you want to turn on the burners for just a second to dry out the water that might have gotten in them when you were cleaning.

Next time I will show you how to get your ceramic glass stove top clean.

And remember you can go to our FaceBook Page and ask any cleaning question you may have. We love to help and I hope it shows 🙂

 

Till next time…. Jan

  7. Great tips! I have a stove similar and it can be a pain to clean. Sometime the coating on those grates are stubborn. If they get really bad I put them in the sink and spray Easy Off Fume Free and let them sit over night. Works every time!

  14. Great! All I need are the suds and to let it sit. I remember in the past, I had let the grates sit in water TOO LONG thinking that it would make it easy to scrape. Next thing I knew, they started to RUST! EEK!

    • Oh no 🙂 Yes the key is when soaking them not to let the water get cold, because then the grease or food you are trying to get loose then gets hard again and yucky. Also they will rust. 🙂

  20. Thanks for the tip about turning on the gas for a minute, I did not know that! You ARE the best when it comes to all things cleaning.

  21. Wow Jan! This is great! I appreciate my Dawn much more now, lol. You have inspired me to clean my stove every night! I have always dreaded cleaning the stove… I keep up with the top, but the inside usually takes me a while to get to. Am I wrong to place aluminum foil at the bottom, and just replace it every so often rather than cleaning the inside regularly?
