Having a clean stove goes beyond an aesthetic matter; however, with continuous use, the emergence of deep stains caused by food spills, oil, and other residues is common. See below for some useful tips to make cleaning easier:
When you notice any spills on the stove, clean it immediately after the stove cools down. This will prevent dirt from getting embedded and making cleaning more complicated in the future.
Use natural ingredients for cleaning
Vinegar is an excellent cleaning agent. Apply it directly to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and scrub gently. Another ingredient that can be used is baking soda. It’s gentle, abrasive, and will help remove stains.
Specific products for stove cleaning
There are products available on the market specifically for stove cleaning that are effective in removing deeper stains. Always follow the label instructions and test in a small area first to ensure there is no discoloration.
Always begin by scrubbing gently to avoid scratching the stove’s surface. If the stain persists, gradually increase the pressure. Avoid using knives, scrapers, or any metallic objects to scrape the stains, as this can damage and scratch your stove’s surface.
Keeping the stove clean and free of deep stains not only enhances the appearance of your kitchen but also extends the lifespan of the appliance. If you encounter difficulties, contact a professional to handle it.
