#11 How to clean your gas appliance

This first video shows you how to best clean burned-on residue and food particles from your gas cooktop. It shows how to clean the grates, burner caps, burner head slots, and ignition ports.

Allow the burners and cooktop to cool completely before you start cleaning. You can use gas grate cleaner to clean most grate and burner caps (sometimes you get a sample packet when you purchase your cooktop).

Fill the kitchen sink with water (doesn’t have to be hot), add gas grate cleaner to water, stir until it dissolves ( use gloves and don’t let it touch your skin).

Completely immerse and soak overnight. The next morning use gloves and drain the sink. Using a scrubbing brush or abrasive pad, clean and rinse thoroughly then wipe clean with towel. Check your owners manual for cleaning instructions and what cleaner is suited for your cooktop.

Cleaning the burner head slots and ignition port will keep the gas flowing well so the burner heats evenly. Wipe burner with damp cloth, and remove food and reside between burner head slots using a toothbrush. To remove stubborn resume, use a paper clip,  or sewing needing.

Make sure you clean the ignition port so the burner ignites properly. Wipe the burner head with a damp cloth after cleaning the slots and ignition port. Clean the rest of the cooktop surface with cooktop cleaning cream.

The cream is safe on painted surfaces. Following these tips will ensure your cooktop stays working and looking like new.

This next video shows you how to clean your oven naturally without harsh chemicals, using only a steam cleaner machine.
