This may have been one of my happiest discoveries while creating my DIY House Cleaning & Organization Pinboard over on Pintrest. I'm, in no way, the inventor of this cleaning idea/tip, but I will advocate for it. It truly saves you the headache of scrubbing, mostly unsuccessfully, to clean your stove burners/grates. I also cleaned those things underneath the grate, though I have no idea what they're called. The process is simple.
- Pour some ammonia in a Ziploc bag or other sealable container/bag.
- Place grates/burners in bag and zip up. For people with single burners/grates, unlike my double ones, you can usually fit on per large Ziploc bag.
- Let sit overnight or so on your front porch or in your garage. I opted for the front porch because of the fumes.
- The fumes from the ammonia will make it so that getting all that grime off your stove grates is much easier.
