    What's the best cleaner for gas stove top?

    Gas stoves are a little different when it comes to cleaning than electric stoves. There's a little more to them and they can be a tiny bit trickier to get clean. Electric stoves are flat and easy to just wipe clean with a multi purpose cleaner or other stove cleaner, but a gas stoves feature harder-to-get-to areas. When cleaning your gas stove, make sure you're disassembling areas properly so they can be restored after you're done cleaning. Many people like to use baking soda or a baking soda cleaner to get the left-over food and stuck-on grease off their gas stoves. There's a great baking soda cleaner on our list from Mrs. Meyer's that'll do the trick.

    For a wider variety of cleaning options, you can shop all kitchen cleaners on Grove, including sponges and stainless steel cleaner.


    How do professionals clean stoves?

    There's no one who can get a stove its cleanest quite like a professional cleaner. Many people look to professional cleaners for advice on how to get our own homes their absolute cleanest. A lot of professionals swear by these steps for getting your stove clean:

    • Step one: Use hot, soapy water in your sink to clean the grates and burners (if you have a gas stove) and wipe down your cooktop with a hot, wet microfiber cloth to remove caked-on, old food
    • Step two: Spray down your cooktop with an all-purpose cleaner and let it sit a few minutes before scrubbing
    • Step three: for a deeper clean, next use a vinegar/baking soda mix and let it sit on your stovetop for 15 minutes before scrubbing it down and rinsing it clean.
