If you cook even a little bit and rely on your stove top to function properly, as most people do, it can be incredibly frustrating if your stove top doesn’t work for any reason. If this ever happens to you, contact your trusty stove repair and kitchen appliance repair experts at Profix Appliance in the Los Angeles area to get your kitchen fully functioning as it should always be.
Even if your stove top or range is working properly and you only cook here and there, even cooking one hefty meal can leave your stove top a complete mess. What’s worse, the longer you leave your stove top dirty, the harder it is to clean. Even with a daily wipe down, it seems like the cleaning chore never ends.
Don’t be mad at yourself, though – conventional stove tops are notoriously difficult to clean. Their size, shape and frequently caked-on reminders of food makes even the most nitty-gritty elbow grease seem like a total waste of time. Here are some easy ways to help keep your stove top squeaky clean.
White vinegar is an awesome, powerful cleanser. White vinegar is used to clean glass stove tops by loosening streaks and stains. Simply mix one part white vinegar with two parts tap water in an unused spray bottle. Next, spray the solution on your glass cooktop and wipe it down vigorously and thoroughly. The acidity of the vinegar helps remove the grime on the stove surface, plus, you can use the white vinegar mixture for everyday cleaning around your house and to disinfect other parts of your kitchen.
Baking Soda and Lemon
In addition to supporting your immune system with its vitamin c characteristics, lemons also have a potent ability to cut through grease. Baking soda has natural antibacterial properties, and when you combine the two, it creates an effective cleaning solution. Baking soda also contains extremely fine particles that help remove baked-on stains but is also gentle enough not to scratch the glass on the surface of your stove top.
If you’re strapped for cash and can’t pick up any cleaning products or simply don’t have any on hand, no worries – if you have a pot, tap water, and the ability to boil water, you’ll be able to effectively clean your stove top.
Simply carefully pour the boiling water over the dirty surface on your stove top and let it cool. After it cools, the dirty stuff on your stove top should wipe away fairly easily. If necessary, scrub those stubborn areas with a bit of soap on a sponge. This is also the most eco-friendly way to clean your stove top and nearly anything else because it is completely natural and chemical-free.
Salt and Baking Soda
Salt is an excellent abrasive that will work to get away any kitchen grime. However, make sure that you’re careful not to damage a glass surface. Blend one tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of salt. Next, simply add one tablespoon of water and mix the paste together. Dip a rag into your mixture and scour the junk away. On overflows, pour the mixture on the surface for further cleaning measures.
There are many other ways to clean your stove top, but these are some environmentally-friendly, economical, and easy ways to clean your stove top in a pinch. Otherwise, let Profix Appliance handle the big stuff when it comes to stove repair and general appliance repair in the Los Angeles area.
