Setting The Stage: Making Your Stove Shine

Home Inspector with Pillar To Post

One of the most dreaded cleaning chores is the mainstay of every kitchen - the stove. Here are some easy environmentally friendly ways to keep your stove shining with less effort.

Bubble away burnt-on bits.
Coat stuck-on grime with a paste of baking soda and water and pour 1/4 cup white vinegar over it - the mix will bubble up and loosen the dirt, so all you do is wipe.

Grease-proof your stove...
With tea. Brew a strong cup (3 tea bags). When tea is warm to the touch, use it to wipe down the stovetop. Tea's tannins will soak up grime.

Make it sparkle with citrus.
Squeeze the juice from one lemon into a spray bottle; add water to fill. Spritz and wipe. The citric acid cuts through grease like magic.

Restore your burners' brilliance!
Place each burner in a ziptop bag with 1/4 cup ammonia. After letting sit overnight, open bags (go outdoors or to a well ventilated space), remove burners and rinse.

Food bits on a glass stovetop.
Lift them away with a single-edge razor blade. Gently slide it under the cooked-on food and magic- it's clean.
