How to clean stove burners: tips for housewives
Stove burners should be cleaned in good time, because burnt-on dirt is much harder to clean. And it is not only about aesthetics - food particles, drops and splashes of fat accumulate on the burners, and when heated, they start to emit unpleasant odors.
As a consequence, dirty burners may burn weakly and there will be insufficient gas flow. What is better to wash the burners of the stove, was analyzed by OBOZREVATEL.
Clean burners should be carefully and regularly, especially if you have an outdated model of gas stove. The fact is that in the burners and nozzles can form a persistent greasy film and accumulate moisture - as a consequence, the fire can suddenly go out. And on older appliances there are no combustion sensors, so a leak would be deadly.
With an electric stove is easier, experts advise washing it every time after cooking or at least once a week. Folk methods will help to effectively and quickly clean the dirt on the burners.
Lifehack with vinegar
Take a sprayer and pour white table vinegar into it. After waiting for 5-10 minutes, sprinkle baking soda on top. From the reaction, a foam will form, it does not need to be quickly washed off. Then use a sponge to remove the remaining dirt from the burner.
Baking soda mixture
Baking soda is a universal natural cleanser, so most folk recipes are based on this remedy. Take a few tablespoons of baking soda, add a little water - a thick paste should form. Carefully rub the burners and leave for 10 minutes. Then remove the dirt and baking soda with a dishwashing sponge.
Lemon juice will help to get rid of stains on the surface of the stove on the burners. If the stains are fresh, just wipe them with half a lemon. On outdated stains, squeeze lemon juice and leave it for 5 minutes. Then clean the dirt with a cloth or damp sponge.
Soda and soap
Not only will this DIY trick get rid of dirt, but it will also neutralize unpleasant odors. In a container, mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap and water. Apply the solution to the burners and wait at least 20 minutes. The solution will work very effectively - no trace of dirt will remain.
Lifehack with ammonia
Apply ammonia to the most soiled areas and rub gently with a toothbrush. The grease and dirt will dissolve after 10-20 minutes. Then carefully wipe off the dissolved residue with a damp sponge.
