How to Clean a Gas Stove Top

Time:  Soak overnight, and as much time needed to scrub it clean (it took me an hour)

I have FINALLY found a way to clean my stove top that works.  For the past 4 years that we have had this gas stove/oven we have been scrubbing and scrubbing the top and we could never scrub all the baked/burnt stuff off, until now!

Here is how I did it:

1.  Wipe stove top clean
2.  Sprinkle baking soda all over

3.  Place a warm wet soapy towel over top and let it soak over night.  This helps loosen all that grime on the stove top.

4.  After soaking start scrubbing it clean.  I used steel wool/Brillo and, yes, a butter knife.  I used the knife to gently scrape and pry up all that burnt on grime.  Then I went over it with the steel wool to get any small particles left after scrapping.  Wipe clean and repeat as needed.  The butter knife worked really great for going around the burners and all the crevices   If I had just used the steel wool and not the butter knife, I would still be there trying to scrub away all that burnt on grime.  The butter knife will really help you, just remember to be gentle.

 My stove top looks so much better, doesn't it?  Almost new again!  Now I just have to find a way to clean the stove grates/burners.
