Worried About an Oily Cooking Stove Surface? Try These Tips!

If you haven’t cleaned your kitchen for some time, or if you cook with a lot of oil and masala, you may have areas which are covered with stains. Cleaning this is now easy.


Keeping a clean kitchen doesn’t require a lot of effort. You must wipe down the surface of your kitchen platform and stove after every use. However, if you haven’t been able to keep up and are left with heavy oil deposits on the stove, try these simple cleaning tips!

Instead of spending on expensive and harsh chemical products, we suggest you look in your kitchen shelf for ingredients to help you clean your stove. They’re not only cheaper, but are also safer alternatives

1) Use Vinegar and Baking Soda

Make a solution comprising 1 cup of water and 1 cup of vinegar and pour it in an empty spray bottle. Make sure all the stove burners have cooled down before spraying the solution over the stove. Sprinkle some baking soda over the surface as well. The reaction will help loosen the grease. Then, wipe with a clean rag. Vinegar is effective, inexpensive and easily accessible.

2) Use Mineral Oil

Pour a few drops of mineral oil on a clean cloth or paper towel. Wipe the oily surface and watch the mess slide right off!

3) Use Rubbing Alcohol or Nail Polish Remover with Dishwashing Liquid

Prepare a mixture of rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. The alcohol will cut through the grease and oil, while the soap will lift it right away. Spray this directly over the affected area, wait for 10 minutes, then wipe with a clean rag

4) Use Lemon Juice and Club Soda

Clear the platform and wipe it with a microfibre cloth. Pour some lemon juice into a bottle of club soda, shake it well and pour it all over the stove. Scrub the gunk away with a cloth and you have a neat and clean stove.

We hope these tips help keep your kitchen clean and a lot more manageable!
