Step 1: Products to Consider
Step 2: Supplies
Depending on the surface, you may need stronger cleaners and scrubbers. I do not like to use paper towels but in some cases paper towels are the only way to go especially with very dirty surfaces. I also do not like to use oven cleaners, but at times you do need a very strong cleaner. It helps a lot to clean up after each use.
Several bar towels.
Scrub brush with a long handle.
Step 3: Remove All Drip Pans and Removable Parts
Remove all drip pans and removable parts.
Place them in the sink.
Wearing gloves use an old scrub brush with a handle and run hot water over the parts scrubbing off as much as you can.
Hot water is your best friend.
If you have a dish washer place them in the dish washer and run on a heavy cycle but do not dry them.
If cleaning them by hand run hot water over the parts scrubbing with the brush removing as much as you can.
Then coat your sponge with one of these products and coat all the parts with a layer of soap and let set until the food loosens.
While you are waiting for the parts to soak go on to the next step.
Step 4: Wipe Excess
Wipe the stove top with a paper towel to remove the loose gunk.
Using a damp sponge coated with a layer of dish soap, Murphy's Oil Soap, or Lemon oil, and scrub the stove top.
Let it set until the food loosens, about 30 minutes or so.
Step 5: Wipe Again
If using the dish washer remove the parts from the dish washer and place in the sink if they need more cleaning.
Run hot water over the parts.
Coat the sponge with Baking Soda and scrub off the food particles.
Dry with a towel.
If washing by hand, run hot water over the parts again; scrubbing off what you can;using the Baking Soda.
This time soak them in a sink with hot water for about 15-30 minutes.
Then using the scrubber; remove the rest of the food particles, rinse and dry with a towel.
Step 6: Stove Top
Add a little water to your sponge and scrub the stove top again.
Rinse the soap residue with a damp bar towel.
Use Baking Soda to remove the rest of the food particles.
Rinse again using the bar towel.
Repeat this process until all the food and grease are removed.
Dry with a bar towel.
Step 7: Replace Parts
Place all the stove parts back on the stove.
