How to Clean Your Stove and Oven: A Quick Guide by 24/25 Cleaners

Keeping your stove and oven clean is not just a matter of hygiene; it's also essential for safety and efficiency. Here's a quick guide from 24/25 Cleaners on the best ways to tackle these kitchen appliances.

Cleaning the Stove

  1. Remove and Soak Burner Caps and Grates: For gas stoves, take off the burner caps and grates and soak them in hot, soapy water. For electric stoves, gently wipe the coils and drip pans with a damp cloth.

  2. Wipe the Stovetop: Mix dish soap with warm water and gently wipe the stovetop. A 50/50 mix of water and vinegar can tackle tougher stains. Avoid abrasive materials to prevent scratches.

  3. Clean Control Knobs: Carefully clean the knobs with soapy water. Ensure water doesn’t seep into the electrical components.

  4. Promptly Clean Spills: To prevent hard-to-clean stains, address spills as soon as the stove is cool.

Cleaning the Oven

  1. Utilize Self-Cleaning Function: If your oven has this feature, use it to burn off residue, but make sure your kitchen is well-ventilated during this process.

  2. Manual Cleaning with 24/25 Cleaners’ Recommended Method:

    • Create a Cleaning Paste: A mix of baking soda and water works well. For tougher jobs, a commercial oven cleaner can be used, following safety guidelines.

    • Apply and Let Sit: Coat the interior of the oven, avoiding heating elements. Let it sit for several hours or overnight.

    • Soak and Scrub Oven Racks: Remove racks and soak in hot, soapy water before scrubbing.

    • Wipe Down the Oven: After the cleaning solution has done its work, wipe the oven with a damp cloth. Use a plastic scraper for stubborn areas.

    • Thorough Rinse: Ensure all cleaning residue is removed with a clean, damp cloth.

3. Oven Door Cleaning: Clean the glass door with a water and vinegar solution. For tough stains, baking soda paste or glass cleaner may be necessary

Regular Maintenance Tips

  • Safety First: Always ensure your appliances are turned off and cool before cleaning.
