Burnt food and grease build-up on your gas stove burners can affect the smooth functioning of your stove and also release an unpleasant odour. It important for your family’s health that you keep them clean. It’s a good practice to deep-clean your gas stove at least once a week to avoid a labour-intensive chore.
Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to help working moms balancing work and family.
Ingredients to Keep Handy:
a) Hot water
b) Dishwashing liquid
c) Cotton cloth
e) Old toothbrush
Step 1: Disassemble the Stove
Remove the different parts of your stove like the burner grates, rings and caps. Soak them in hot water. Add a few drops of dishwashing liquid. You can try Vim Dishwash Gel for this, which is easily available in the market. The soapy solution will clean the grease in minutes.
Step 2: Clean the Stove Surface
Wipe the surface with a clean cotton cloth to remove surface dirt and dust. Dampen a sponge with lukewarm water and add 2 drops of dishwashing liquid. You can try Vim Dishwash Gel for this, which is easily available in the market. Scrub your stove with the sponge. Use an old toothbrush to clean the areas around the burners. Be careful to prevent saturating the burners with soap. You may have to scrub hard to remove burnt food particles stuck on them. Do not use a steel wool scrubber; it will lead to unsightly scratch marks on your gas stove. Wash off the soapy layer with a damp cotton cloth. Finally, wipe dry with a clean towel.
Step 3: Rinse the Parts
Scrub the disassembled parts of your gas stove and rinse them with plain tap water. Wipe them dry using a clean kitchen towel.
Step 4: Reassemble the Stove
Put all the parts back on the gas stove and ensure they are all placed correctly.
