Stovetops can be one of the toughest cleaning jobs in the house, and if you use the stove a lot you know just how dirty it can get. Stovetops can get full of food and grease build-up that isn't always easy to remove. Of course, the best way is to stay on top of it and clean up after each meal is prepared. But even so, you may find yourself having to use a lot of elbow grease for the spots you've missed or when it comes time to give the stove a deep clean. You will want to take a look at these step by step stove cleaning tips that use a few nontoxic cleaners and stovetop cleaner to get the job done. It's not the most fun job to do, but with these stove cleaning tips, it might be a little easier.

To start, you will want to gather up your nontoxic cleaners and stovetop cleaner to include salt, baking soda, vinegar, and rubbing alcohol. First wipe away any of the surface dirt with some wet paper towels for the crumbs and anything else that comes off easily. Then sprinkle with some baking soda to soak up any grease. Using a soft scrubber start wiping away as much as you can. Then sprinkle on some salt this will help finish absorbing any grease along with helping the scrubbing. Next, you will want to make a paste using nontoxic cleaners such as baking soda, salt, and white vinegar. Mix and put overtop all of the spots that wouldn't come off. Then leave the paste on for at least an hour or overnight. Then using a soft scrubber wipe away as much as you can. For the full stove cleaning tip, you will want to take a look at the site.

Another stove cleaning tip that uses nontoxic cleaners again uses baking soda mixed with water to clean oven glass. Completely cover the glass with the mixture and then let it sit on the glass for three to five hours. THen using a clean cloth wipe the glass clean. That's it. The inside of the oven can also be cleaned using a similar paste of baking soda and water. For the oven stove cleaning tip you will also need rubber gloves, a damp dish cloth, a plastic or silicone spatula, a spray bottle and some white vinegar. To start remove all the oven racks and anything you have inside of the oven and set aside. Then make another paste using baking soda and water. You can adjust the ratio of the two until you have a paste that is spreadable. Too little water and the paste won't be spreadable, and you will know when you have too much water. Coat the inside of the oven with the paste and let it sit overnight or for at least twelve hours. Then take the damp cloth after the paste has sat for the required time and wipe clean.
