How to clean stove handles: the most effective cheapest ways

How to make a soda solution

- If the soaking does not remove all the dirt, clean the handles with an old toothbrush.
Laundry soap is used not only for washing - the lye contained in it helps to remove dirt from various surfaces.
Use a fine grater to grate ¼ bar of soap, add ½ cup of hot water and stir until it dissolves. Dampen a sponge with the solution and wipe dirty handles.
Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda and a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution to a paste. Use a toothbrush to apply the mixture to the handles, leave it on for 5-7 minutes and wipe off the residue with a damp cloth.
Acidic products are effective on greasy and old stains. Pour a small amount of salicylic acid solution onto a cotton pad and wipe the hob handles. Remove any residue with a damp sponge.
If the handles are free of grease, you can use ordinary alcohol-based wet wipes. Simply wipe the handles and the hob all around.
