All stoves receive their share of grease stains, especially when frying foods. Grease stains cleaned up quickly do not present a problem, but stains that are allowed to stay on the hob and are reheated and cooked onto burners, caps, dripping pans and cooking tops become a bigger problem. These stubborn stains are harder to remove and need extra effort to get rid of. Baking soda and non-abrasive cleaners make the job easier.

  1. 1

    Place gas stove burner grates and caps into a sink with warm, soapy water. Allow the items to soak for 15 minutes to loosen the grease.

  2. 2

    Wet the grease stains on the hob with a wet dishrag, sprinkle baking soda on them, then scrub the grease stains with the dishrag. The baking soda should loosen the grease and allow you to wipe it away.

  3. 3

    Scrub the grates and caps and place them in a dish drainer. Dry the hob, grates and caps with a clean cloth, and return the caps and grates to the hob.

Tips and warnings
