3 tips for cleaning a gas stove

Our gas stoves are some of the most demanding appliances in the kitchen when it comes to maintenance. Constantly exposed to cooking messes, grease, spills and food residue, it is obvious that their surface needs to be cleaned regularly to avoid the accumulation of dirt. To counteract all this without getting tired, we share with you some proven tips.
How do you clean a gas stove?
If you are one of those who clean the stove regularly, this is not insurmountable! First, remove the grills, gas stoves and nozzles to set them aside, then clean with a few drops of dish soap on the stovetop. Then rinse with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. In any case, this is the easiest cleaning!

Does the grease stay on the device and the stains remain? Squeeze a few drops of lemon and rub gently before rinsing and drying. But what about the most stubborn grease stains? Chemicals are not required! We take care of this:

  1. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
    Are you dealing with particularly stubborn stains? There are few options that resist the duo of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda! The steps to use are simple.

How do I proceed?

First, remove surface dirt with a soft cloth;
Then remove the burners and grates from the stove;
Sprinkle half a cup of baking soda on the stained areas (and dose the powder according to the areas to be cleaned and the hardness of the stains)
Pour 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide into a spray bottle and spray the product over the baking soda. What happens is pretty magical. The meeting of the two ingredients creates a reaction that breaks down all the dirt, grease, and burnt food leftovers cooked on the stove.
Finally we have a towel soaked in clean water and a final pass with a dry cloth. The surface of your oven now looks good!
By the way, did you know that coarse salt is also an ingredient that can save the day? Yes, this dressing is the exceptional ingredient you can count on to brighten up your stovetop.

    It is safe to say that cleaning gas burners and nozzles from the grease that accumulates in them is another matter. On the other hand, there is no need to make it a big problem if you know how to do it intelligently. The process couldn’t be easier.

How do I proceed?

Remove oven knobs and gas burners;
Prepare a solution with 1 liter of hot water, 1/2 glass of white vinegar and 1 glass of lemon juice in a bowl that can collect the elements from the stove;
Immerse the parts in the solution and let them sit for a few minutes;
Rub the parts with a sponge, used toothbrush or steel wool;
Do grease stains persist? Dip a toothbrush in a baking soda paste and rub it. Rest, rinse and then let dry;
All you have to do is put the pieces back in place.
The same principle applies to networks. They are dipped into a bowl filled with the same solution and large enough to collect them. After soaking completely, you can rub them with steel wool and baking soda paste. Rinse, let dry and you’re done! The grids are completely degreased!

  1. White vinegar and olive oil
    White vinegar alone can work wonders to loosen all types of home surfaces, even the stainless steel oven. It’s good to know that you can add olive oil to improve the cleaning of white vinegar if you want to give your stove a shine. Here is a trick that not only offers a “two effect in one” but is also very easy to use.

How do I proceed?

Pour two tablespoons of white vinegar onto a microfiber cloth. If you prefer, you can always spray a little directly onto the hob;
Rub to remove dirt. Repeat the action if necessary;
As a final touch, clean the surface of the oven with a soft cloth soaked in a few drops of olive oil in a circular motion. Of course it’s better to be clean! On the one hand, vinegar removes stains and on the other hand, stainless steel shines thanks to olive oil.
By the way, there is another important reminder. The longer you delay cleaning a hob, the dirtier it becomes, making the job more difficult… So take note of this grandma’s tips and save your precious appliance to avoid long cleaning sessions!
