I have burned on grease on the top of my stove and the burners. I am looking for a practical and easy way to get it back to being white and shiny.

  • @Jeanne Warner You don't say what kind of stove top and burners you have, is it gas or electric.

    I usually use Ajax and it scrubs right off. But as @Carolyn Faye Blizzard Lanier hinted at, I'm not sure its safe for all surfaces.

    BarKeepers friend is amazing. I use it and a nylon scrubbie on my ceramic top stove.

    Make a paste of baking soda and peroxide. Smear it all over the area that needs cleaning and let it set several hours. You should be able to clean it off easily.

    I use the baking soda and peroxide method. put what you and in the sink. (plug in) and cover the pieces with a paste of baking soda and a few drops of peroxide---enough to be just moist. Rub the paste all over the dirty pieces and then I spray (using a spray bottle--sorry) straight peroxide onto it. Allow it to "work a while and then rinse. you may have to follow this procedure a few times depending on the soil. you can do the same on the stove top. Other than nylon, I would NOT use a scrubber!

    Well this is a useful dialogue. I think the best way I've found was letting the area soak for a time, and it hardly matters what you use; lestoil used to be my go-to product, but I get dollar store windex on almost everything now and find it very adequate! elbow grease is also useful! good luck!

    Lol... I just saw this same exact problem on my FB feed. The woman sealed her burners in a plastic bag with a little bit of ammonia. She placed the sealed burner outside in case of an accidental leak for 12 hrs. The fumes made the gunk come off and all she had to do was wipe it clean. I think it was actually a Hometalk post!
