Jana from Thrice The Spice here with a kitchen cleaning tip that you are going to love! Spring is here (warm weather, please stay!), and now is a great time to tackle this project! When I first saw this idea on Pinterest, I was pretty skeptical about it. It seemed too easy to be true. But, I decided to give it a try, and I’m so glad I did! If you’re like me, and you use your stovetop for cooking very often, the burner pans start to get really gross, really fast! I admit that I hadn’t cleaned mine in awhile, but that just makes the “After” picture even more amazing! All you need is some ammonia, and some gallon ziploc bags! Keep reading to find out more!
All you have to do is place each burner pan in a gallon size ziploc bag. Then, pour a small amount (I used 1/4 cup) in each burner pan. Tightly seal the bag, and allow it to sit overnight. The fumes from ammonia are pretty strong, so you might want to place them outside (if it’s not too cold), or in a garage or laundry room. Don’t worry that the amount of ammonia doesn’t seem like enough to cover the pan. The fumes are what will be cleaning it! Allow it to sit overnight, or for at least 8 hours. Once the time has passed, open the bags, and remove the pans. Using a cloth cleaning rag or even paper towels, rub the burner pan, and all of the gunk will come right off! It really is amazing how well this works!
