How to Duggie: Cleaning Stove Burners

Inspired by the Duggar family, I am making this year about homemade, from scratch recipes. & adding to the list homemade cleaning products!!

Pinterest is my new addiction. I love looking for new ways to make my household chores easier. I came across this idea and I jumped on it!! Amazed at the results!

Yes, I  know my grills were bad. I was standing my ground in having my hubby be the one to scrub these. Well as you can see I was losing my battle. I now will do them myself and he can focus on making sure he takes out the garbage and helping with other chores ;)

 Place stove burner in ziploc bag, pour 1/4 c. of ammonia, soak overnight

Wipe it down with a wet sponge (I added dish soap) 

You're job is done!!

Can't take credit for this amazing tip, here is the blog I found it in The V Spot: Cleaning Stove Burners

    1. Where do I find the ammonia ?
      Does it has to be in powder?

  2. I tried this and it worked like magic! Thanks:)

  3. There’s not only the matter of contemporary versus traditional when it comes to woodburning stoves, but also heat output, energy efficiency, and price.

  4. This works great, my stove looks like new again.

  5. So I tried this last night, and it didn't work for me. The (all pupose) ammonia has been around awhile...would that matter? Also, I used a kitchen trash bag with the cinch and just tied it, should I have used a twist tie as well? I'm going to try it again as nothing will get these grates and burners clean.

  6. That trick has been around for ever. I used to watch my grandmom clean any grates, stoveburner etc with ammonia. it has ben a cleaning option since at least the '60s when I knew of it, if course blogs make it easy to spread the word...

  7. What a great tip,it worked like magic, and No damaged nails.

  8. Tried this today...I was AMAZED at how well it worked! My burners look like new!!!
