Cleaning a Greasy Stovetop With Just Soap and Water

How To Clean a Greasy Stovetop With Just Soap and WaterWhat You Need
Materials
Sponge or cleaning cloth
Dish soap
Scrub brush
Kitchen towel
Instructions
1.If you can remove the grates and knobs, do.
 
2.Soak the knobs in soapy water while you wipe down the stovetop.
 
3.Squirt a very small drop of dishwashing liquid onto a sponge or cloth. Wet, then squeeze out most of the water. You need some soap to cut the grease, but you don't want swimming pools of water dripping into crevices.
 
4.Wipe and scrub away the grease splatters and spilled sauces, rewetting and re-soaping your sponge if necessary.

How to Clean Electric Stove Burners


Wait for the burners to completely cool(we can't stress this enough!), then remove them from the stove top. Most should slide out with a gentle tug and lift from the connection point, but if you have questions, refer to your manual (or find your stove's manual on).

Using a cloth and a bit of mild dish soap and water, rinse any residue from the burner coils. Take care not to get any part of the the electrical connection wet, and don't submerge any part of the burners.

If there's any cooked-on food residue that won't come off with the soap-and-water mixture, use this method: Make a paste from baking soda and water, then apply it to the tough spot.

tips to properly clean your home to keep your family safe from germs and bacteria

We don't want to start a panic, so let's start off by saying that it’s perfectly acceptable to have some germs in your home. It's unavoidable, really. Germs and bacteria are all around you, and, believe it or not, they actually make our immune systems stronger.
There are, however, certain areas of your home that actually house more bacteria than others — bacteria that can be harmful if levels are not kept in check with regular cleaning.
You've probably already guessed that the bathroom is one of the biggest culprits, but does it surprise you that the kitchen is actually higher on the list?
