Stove handles are the hardest to clean

The part of the stove that causes the most trouble when cleaning is the handles. In particular, the oven handle. Small parts get covered with grease and dust just as quickly as the rest of the surfaces, but they are very inconvenient to clean. However, the task becomes much easier when you know how to clean stove and oven handles.

OBOZREVATEL has collected a few recipes from improvised means that will make it easy to clean them. All of the products are great at dissolving grease, so you won't need to rub them thoroughly.

Citric acid

Citric acid, whether it's from the factory or fresh lemon juice, is a great way to dissolve even old grease stains. Squeeze a fresh lemon or dilute a packet of acid in enough water and apply the liquid to the handles with a soft brush, such as an old toothbrush, or a cotton pad. For hard-to-reach and small parts, you can use a cotton swab. Leave the product on for 10-15 minutes, and then brush the handles again to remove any dissolved grease. Repeat the procedure if necessary. Finally, rinse the pens with water. If they are glossy, such as metal, wipe them dry to prevent water stains.


This product is effective against old grease, but you need to be careful with it because of its strong odor. Therefore, it is better to clean surfaces with ammonia with the window open. Dampen a cotton swab with the liquid and run it over the grease stains. Leave it on for a few minutes. Then use a brush to remove the dissolved dirt. Rinse the handles with water and wipe them dry.


Vinegar can be used to soak the removable handles of the stove. To do this, put them in a saucepan, cover them with a liter of water, and add 250-300 ml of vinegar. Boil the handles in this solution, turn off the heat, and leave them for 10-15 minutes. At this time, you can treat the oven handle with undiluted vinegar, which will remove traces of grease from it. After the handles have been in the hot solution, remove them and rinse them under warm water. If necessary, remove the soaked dirt with a brush or sponge. Then let them dry and replace them.
