What Is Your Least Favorite Room To Clean?

Another guest post came in on how to care for your cooktop.  I am not an ace in this department, so I thought I’d leave the tips for the pro’s.  I hope you can benefit from their post.  Everyone wants a clean kitchen, but does everyone have one?

 The Kitchen  How to Deal with the Range Nightmare

If you make your own research, asking all the housewives you know which space in their home they hate to clean the most, the answer will be one and the same, with no exceptions at all – the kitchen. The kitchen is the spot where the cooking, chopping, blending and peeling takes place, which thus forms the most disastrously dirty area. You will be surprised to find out that there is a plain, almost entirely effortless, way to cope with the most unpleasant parts of the kitchen cleaning.

The living representation of the kitchen’s worst nightmare is the oven, and no matter how careful you try to be while using it, finally, you end up violently scouring its greasy bottom. Calm down and imagine for a second that it can all be done without breaking a single drop of sweat! Let’s start with the cook top – when it comes to grease, there is one basic rule that counts more than anything else, and it’s called ‘hot water’, so put on your rubber gloves and get it started. If your range is a gas one, remove the grates, the buttons and the burners, and place them into a utensil filled with hot water and some dish soap. While the reassembled elements are undisturbed soaking, dip a sponge in how water and soap and scrub the top of the range paying special attention to the zones around the burners where grime blotches are more than anywhere else. Afterward, rinse with water and let it dry, or wipe it out with paper towels. Then, go back to the soaked elements, and if they need some extra scrubbing, do so; then, rinse them and reassemble them back on the stove top.

The electric cook top needs the same manipulation with the only difference that usually the burners have the function to self-clean and should not be exposed to water. Special non-abrasive liquid detergents would lead to excellent results. The best way to handle the spills welded on the bottom of the oven is to run the self-cleaning program and focus on the rest of the tasks that are ahead of you for the day. If your oven doesn’t have this self-cleaning setting, you will have to do it the old-fashioned way. Take a spatula and scrape off the loose crusts. If this procedure still leaves blotches, you can pour ammonia and leave it there for 5 minutes, and then entirely cover the blotch with generous quantity of baking soda. To make it look like a laboratory experiment, add some vinegar, as well, and let it bubble for a couple of minutes. Rub the filth with a sponge (a scrub one) and rinse with a sponge dipped in clean water.

You can use ammonia for the inner part of the oven’s glass – spray it and leave it for a while; then, scrub it gently with a non-abrasive pad and before you wipe it out with paper towels, swill it with а wet sponge. The outside part of the glass usually doesn’t have stubborn greasy spots to take care of, so you can spray it with a window cleaner and wipe it out.

You can make the whole cleaning easier next time by implementing this rule – when some spills happen, just sprinkle enough salt to cover them, and when the baking is over and the oven is cooled down, just scrape it away with a spatula.  This post was brought to you by http://www.cleanngone.co.uk/domestic/domestic_cleaning_london.html
