my carpets...my stove hasn't seen much cleaning love since we moved in! However, moving out means cleaning up...so it's getting its fair share of cleaning love this week! Oh, and it is completely okay to be totally grossed out by the picture to the left...I am!
I don't know about you, but I'm no professional in the kitchen (surprise, I know!) so, my burner drip pans get a lot of use! I remember the first time I noticed how bad they looked (about six months ago) and wanted to be a good wife and clean them up. I took the burners and drip pans out and started to just scrub away...yeah, that didn't work! So, I looked up online how to clean the stove drip pans and I found something that worked!
What you need:
Pan big enough to submerge a drip pan in
Tongs (to remove the hot drip pan)
What to do:
Bring pot full of water to a boil (I know, you have to use the stove for this...which you are trying to clean.)
Pour in 1/4 cup baking soda into boiling water
Submerge drip pan in mixture and let boil for 15 minutes. So...I left mine in for AT LEAST 20 minutes, because they were SO bad. If you have normal dirty drip pans, 15 minutes should do the trick
Remove the drip pan from the boiling water and wash as normal.
The grime and gunk should come right off...most all of mine did but once again, I had A LOT of crap on my drip pans. Doing this process a few times would probably loosen up that stubborn gunk. Let's take a look at the before and after of my gross drip pans.
I'm quite pleased with the outcome!
