How-To: Cleaning The Stove
A little scrubbing can go a long way!
It's safe to say that it's not a kitchen without a proper stove—we sometimes use it for crafting, whipping up homemade solutions, and most importantly, we use it for prepping meals for the family. While the cleaning part may not be as fun or tasty as cooking, it's an important task that must be done regularly to keep the stove running smoothly. To help you get rid of grease and grime, we've put together a step-by-step guide you can follow:
What you need:
- Antibacterial dishwashing liquid
- Baking soda
- Dish rag or sponge
- Before taking on this task, make sure the burners are completely cool to avoid any accidents. If they are ready, start by removing them from the stove top. Most should slide out with a gentle lift but if you have a more complicated unit, refer to the manual first for instructions.
- Using a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water, rinse any residue from the burner coils. Be ready with a dish rag or sponge to soak up any droplets that can get the electrical connection wet. Remember not to submerge any part of the burner in liquid!
- If there is any food buildup that won't come off with soap and water, try adding baking soda to the mixture to make a paste. Apply it to the stained area, wait for around half an hour and scrub it away.
