Cleaning--stove tops, ovens, etc.

Good Morning!  A few tips for cleaning stovetops and ovens...

To prevent grease and grime from sticking to your stove top, making it easy to clean, rub it down with car wax on occasion.

Burners can be cleaned by placing burners in a large pot cover with water add baking soda bring water to a boil and then simmer until all grease and grim comes off easily.

No self-cleaning oven? Wipe down the inside with an all-purpose cleanser. Use a plastic scraper (or an old credit card) to get bits of food off the racks and drip pan.

Cleaning the Stove Hood Filter: Take out the filter (most just pop right out) and soak in hot, soapy water, rinse well and let dry.
An alternative would be to place the filter in your dishwasher.

Cleaning the Stove Hood: Pour 1/2-cup of white vinegar and 1 tablespoon of borax into the bucket of warm water. Dip a soft cloth into the solution and ring it out.
Wash the surface of the stove hood well and make sure to get any sticky spots that may have formed. Be sure to clean on the inside of the hood as well.
If you come across a sticky spot that won't come up, dip a damp sponge into a little dry borax and work it into the spot and wipe with the damp cloth.
Once the surface is clean, wipe with a dry, clean cloth. 

Kitchen odor: Place a small bowl of white vinegar next to the stove while frying foods to chase away odors. This even works on fried fish!

Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!
