That means no major scrubbing and sweating trying to get these pans clean. This has got to be one of the easiest stove cleaning tips out there. We're constantly using our stove tops for cooking meals, so it's no wonder there's always gunk in our drip pans if you have an electric stove. The drip pans are just doing their job, which is to catch the gunk, so it's easy to clean up. But if the gunk sits in the drip pans for too long it can be really difficult to get off. That's why you may need some heavy duty cleaners like ammonia to help you out with your dirty drip pans. While ammonia is a naturally occurring substance, it's also poisonous and quite toxic, so be really careful when you use it. Try not to breathe it in because it can cause damage to your mucus membranes. You can wear a mask while you use the ammonia to clean your drip pans and also wear some rubber gloves, so you don't get any on your skin. Also, be sure to do this in a well-ventilated room and open up any windows in your kitchen while you use ammonia. This stuff is strong, and it will get the job done really well.
So the drip pans go into individual plastic bags, and you pour just a splash of ammonia in them and seal them up. Lay them flat in an area where they won't get disturbed and leave them there overnight. The next day remove your drip pans from the bags and rinse them off in some hot water and dish soap. You'll be so shocked at how easily the grime just wipes right off of the pans. If there are any hard to remove spots, just take some baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and make a paste. Then apply the paste to the hard to scrub spots and leave it on them for a good hour or so. Then take a scrubbing pad and scrub off the gunk. You can also use these methods for your oven racks as well. If you don't want to use ammonia, you can also make a natural cleaner that will work well. Simply make a paste out of baking soda and water. Then, you just cover the drip pans with the paste and let it sit overnight in bags. The baking soda helps break down all of that accumulated food and grease making it easier to restore the drip pans to their original clean state.
Clean the inside of your oven using some baking soda and water too. Just make a thick paste with baking soda and water, then spread it all over the walls, floor and ceiling of the oven. Leave the paste to work it's magic with the door closed overnight. Then, in the morning, spray some pure white vinegar on the baking soda which will cause it to fizz up. This is a good thing because it will work on any really hardened on food. Leave that for about 20 minutes and then come back and start cleaning out all of the grime. You'll probably find that the burned on food comes off really easily, and that you maybe don't even have to scrub at all. Once you have it all out, just do one final clean of your oven, and you're good to go. Enjoy this and other great cleaning tips from One Good Thing By Jillee.***
