Are you ready to clean the cooktop?! Great! Let’s get to work.
There are several types of stoves but these two methods appear to be best for Spring Cleaning the most common stovetops:
Spring Cleaning a flat cooktop:
- Liberally squeeze a commercial flat cooktop cleaner or sprinkle Bar Keeper’s Friend on the flattop. The cleaner works good but Bar Keeper’s Friend make’s it effortless!!
- Use a white cleaning cloth and scrub in a circular motion. Pay special attention to areas with dried/burned on food.
- Repeat if necessary. If you use BKF you won’t have to repeat. Seriously. It’s that good!
Spring Cleaning stove burners and drip pans:
I’d loooove to have a gas stove someday but since I don’t own one now, I did a quick search to find the best way to clean one. I found a great site that gives step-by-step instructions for cleaning gas stove burners. According to tipnut, you can also use this same method for drip pans. This looks to be the easiest way to clean stove burners ever! Make sure to click over for specific instructions and pictures, but here are the bullet points for easy reference:
- Remove burners (or drip pans) and place in plastic ziplock or trash bag.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of ammonia in the bag. You don’t need to completely cover the burners since the fumes actually do the work.
- Seal the bag.
- Place outside (so fumes don’t leak into your home) for about 12 hours.
- Remove from bag and wipe clean.
