This started with me just trying to figure out a better way to clean my stove top (Sorry I have less pictures than normal because this didn't start out as a post, but I just HAD to share this with you all!) . I love a clean stove. My stove literally is the center of our house and so I feel like when my stove is clean my house feels cleaner and vise versa! I'm pretty good at keeping it clean, but being a gas stove there has always been burnt on 'stuff' that will not come off no matter how long I soak or how hard I scrub it.
There has always been a black ring around the bottom right burner (The one we use the most) that I just accepted it as a permanent fixture in my kitchen unless I wanted to buy a new stove. While working on my New Year's Resolution, I decided to try a new way to tackle the stove. I found this post by Nicole and decided to give it a try. The angels were singing hallelujah in my kitchen when all was done. I think I even drove my family crazy with the text pictures of my nice clean stove. LOL
- Dirty stove
- Ammonia (I found mine on the bottom shelf of the cleaning isle of Target, it's so cheep it's never at eye level.) ;)
- Gallon size zip-lock baggies
- Cleaning mask (Optional)
4. Wipe all the grime off. I found that with 24 hours of 'fumigating' everything just wiped right off with a sponge and didn't require any scrubbing. The hardest part was just making sure I got all the nooks and crannies. (Optional: I used a cleaning mask because this stuff STINKS!!! I got Lemon "Scented"... Yea right! there was nothing LEMON about it Ug!!)
I will NEVER scrub my stove again. If you have pieces that will not fit in a gallon size bag there are alternatives. I sealed up the drip pans in foodsaver bags. It worked perfectly. I am so happy that black ring is forever banished!! :D
Like this idea? Pin It!!
