What to use to clean the grate of a gas stove

Ukrainians particularly valued the benefits of gas stoves during blackout periods when critical infrastructure facilities could be without electricity for several days due to Russian shelling. However, one of the significant disadvantages is the need to clean the grates after cooking.

Food residues, dirt, and grease, deeply absorbed into the surface, can cause an unpleasant odor and reduce the efficiency of the stove. OBOZREVATEL has selected quick ways to solve the eternal problem of housewives.

Soda solution

Soda consistently tops the list of the most popular cleaning products. Our grandmothers used a quick and effective life hack – they soaked the grates in a soda solution. It is effortless to prepare: just add a few tablespoons of soda to a bowl of hot water. The baking soda will soften the dirt and can be easily removed by wiping it off with a sponge. You can also add a little vinegar to make it more effective.

Ammonia

This is a somewhat risky life hack, but social media users claim that it is effective. Fill a plastic bag with ammonia and put the grates in it overnight. Then, gently rinse the grilles under running water and remove any remaining dirt with a sponge.

Steam cleaning

Steam cleaning is another effective way to clean the gas hob. If you do not have a special steam cleaner, simply pour boiling water into a saucepan. Place the grill over the boiling water and leave it for a few minutes. Old stains will quickly disappear, just wipe the surface with a sponge or cloth.

By the way, citric acid will get rid of grease and soot. It should be diluted with water, dipped in the solution of dirty equipment and boiled in a metal container for 10-15 minutes. This life hack is often used to wash skewers and barbecue grills.
