Over time, grease remnants from the food you cook can accumulate on the stove top and cause an ugly mess that can't be removed with your regular soap and water. To cut through the grease, you'll have to use elements that break the grease down so it can be scrubbed away. Using a combination of the right cleaning products and heat, you can remove the grease from your stove without using too much elbow grease.
Things You'll Need
- Stove cleaner
- Textured sponge or scrubber
- Baking soda
- Spray bottle
- Paper towels
Remove the elements from the burners on the stove, and set them aside.
Remove any large pieces or chunks of food from the stove top.
Apply a liberal coating of stove cleaner to the top of the stove, and allow it to penetrate for at least three minutes.
Use a textured scrubber in circular motions over the stove to loosen and remove most of the grease. Wipe away all excess cleaner with paper towels.
Sprinkle baking soda over any remaining grease spots on the stove. Baking soda is naturally abrasive, and can be especially helpful for cleaning greasy stoves.
Pour white vinegar into an empty spray bottle, and spray it over the baking soda. This will cause a fizzing reaction. Allow the mixture to fizz for a minute before using paper towels or a clean sponge to remove the mixture and grease remnants.
