Here’s a Simple No-Scrub Solution for Cleaning Stove Burners

We’ve all been there. Our stove burners get so dirty sometimes after a lot of use and we dread having to take the time and energy to scrub them clean. And I don’t know about you, but it seems that no matter how hard I scrub, they never look perfectly clean. Now though, thanks to The TV Spot, we’ve got an easy, cheap and extremely efficient way to return stove burners to their former glory.

The first thing you want to do is pick up some regular old ammonia. For each burner, put burner into a large ziploc bag and pour about 1/4 cup of ammonia in with it. Then seal the bag up and leave it outside on a cookie sheet overnight. (Leaving it outside just prevents any fumes from escaping inside if a bag springs a leak.)

While the burners sit in the bags, the fumes from the ammonia actually work to dissolve all of the grease and oil that’s hardened onto your burners. So in the morning, you should be able to remove the burners and gently wipe clean with a sponge. It’s as easy as that!

Important Note: Here’s a VERY important reminder from the V Spot:

Never, EVER mix ammonia with anything that has bleach in it.  It creates toxic fumes.  (In general, I suggest you don’t play chemist and try to mix ammonia with anything, period).
