Whether you are a nifty cook or use to reheat leftovers, you are likely to have experienced the frustration and stress of cleaning a cooktop. Over time, it can build up grime, grease, gunk, and spills from cooking, and this can make cleaning stressful and an unpleasant chore.
However, there are some tips and tricks to help you make cleaning with your cooktop easier and convenient.
Get the Necessary Tools
Liquid surface cleaners and paper towels can clean, but if yours is particularly dirty, you may require extra tools that can help. Cooktop cleaning brushes are used to brush debris off or break up tougher grime spots and are also inexpensive! You can also use a razor scraper, but take care not to scratch the surface.
Consider Natural Cleaners
While there are so many kitchen cleaning sprays available at most grocery stores, you may not need them, as you are likely to have the two most effective cleaners in your pantry, and that are lemons and vinegar! Lemons can be powerful with baking soda. All you need is to sprinkle the baking soda on the cooktop’s surface and rub it using the lemon before wiping them for final touch with a damp cloth. Also, combine one part of vinegar and two parts of water for the best solution and put it in the spray bottle for everyday cleaning.
en you are cooking, and there are any spills, wipe them while the surface is still warm. As you will be risking a burn, you come back later and wipe down before the cooktop fully cools, as it will be easier to clean.
Disassemble Before Soaking
By disassembling the cooktop’s elements and other components, you can soak these parts to make the cleaning easier. The rest components that cannot be disassembled can be scrubbed clean. Just be sure to dry thoroughly before reassembling.
Tackle It Frequently
By having a weekly schedule for cleaning your cooktop, the grime and stains don’t have the chance to accumulate. There is nothing more challenging than trying to clean layers and layers of accumulated dirt, so it is best to clean them regularly to stop the layers of spills and stains from making themselves at ease on your cooktop.
