Exhibit A in my fight against grime!
|Step 1: This is what these bad boys look like after a trip through the dishwasher. Not impressive!|
|Step 2: An extra long bath in warm water, mixed with dish soap.|
|Step 3: After their luxurious soak, I scrubbed them with a sponge. Despite the spa treatment, they're still not looking good!|
|Step 4: I brought out my secret weapon*, and they finally look presentable!|
*And the secret weapon was....... aluminum foil wadded up into a ball!! Yes, it's true! I created several aluminum foil balls and went to work scouring each piece. At my rate, I shouldn't have to do it again for, I don't know, another month or so :)
Disclaimer: TEST the aluminum foil on a small area first to make sure that it doesn't create scuffs. Aluminum foil is NOT for use on a stainless steel oven.
I followed the same process with one of my grates. It was seriously hard labor!! Even though using the aluminum foil balls gave me the best results I've seen (and helped me work through any aggression), I wasn't left convinced that it was worth the work for the other three grates! The jury is still out.
If you have any cleaning tips for your stove top, PLEASE let me know!!!!! I will be forever grateful!!!
