Cleaning the Kitchen #6 - The Stove & Oven
For all stoves types you want to clean up spills as they occur. If you don’t get to it right away, no worries just soak the spill with hot water until it is loose enough to clean. 

Cleaning a glass stove top is easy with a liquid detergent, hot water and a sponge. For a regular stove top, remove the top of the stove, the burners, the knobs, and the drip pans. Soak in hot water and soap. If your grime is stuck on you might want to soak them overnight.

For ovens you want to start out by unplugging it. Remove the racks. With your oven cleaner and a sponge or steel wool (check your stove cleaning instructions) scrub the inside of the oven. If the oven has hard stuck on food heat an oven safe pan filled with water for about 15 minutes at 300 degrees.

Using silicon or heat resistant gloves and a grill cleaner scrub the sides, top and bottom of the oven. You can get a more thorough cleaning once the oven is cooled down. If you have a self cleaning stove, remove any food particles you can by hand. Set your oven to clean making sure you open a window to ventilate. Once the cleaning is complete wipe clean.

Finally, scrub the surface of the stove top and oven. Wipe it with a microfiber cloth. To help make your glass oven shine a mixture of vinegar and water will help.

Replace the racks, the drip pans, the burners and the knobs. If your stove is gas check that the pilot is relit, if it is electric, plug the stove back in the electric socket.
