Step 1: To prepare the Cleaning Solution simply fill a sink or a large bowl with warm water. Next, add a few drops of Dawn dish soap to the water and swish it around until the suds appear. The warm water and Dawn dish soap mixture will help break down the hardened grease quickly.
Step 2: Remove Burners and Grates (If Applicable) If your stovetop has removable burners or grates, carefully remove them and set them aside. Cleaning the burners separately will ensure thorough cleaning of all components.
Step 3: Soak the Burners and Grates (If Applicable) Place the removable burners and grates in the warm, soapy water. Allow them to soak while you work on cleaning the stovetop surface. Doing this will help weaken any stuck-on grease or food particles making it easy to clean.
Step 4: Apply the Dawn Dish Soap Solution: Dip a soft sponge or cloth into the soapy water solution. Wring out any excess liquid, ensuring the sponge or cloth is damp but not dripping. The goal is to moisten the surface without saturating it.
Step 5: Gently Scrub the Stovetop: Starting from one side of the stovetop, begin gently scrubbing the surface using circular motions. Focus on the greasy areas, applying a bit more pressure to break down the grease. The Dawn dish soap’s powerful grease-fighting properties will help cut through the grime, making it easier to remove.
Step 6: Pay Attention to Problem Areas: For particularly stubborn or sticky grease spots, you may need to use a scrub brush or a sponge with a rougher texture. Be careful not to use anything abrasive that may scratch the stovetop surface. The goal is to gently remove the grease without causing any damage. Tip: Never use a knife to scrape the stuck particle off as this will scratch the stovetop.
Step 7: Rinse the Stovetop: Once you have thoroughly scrubbed the stovetop surface, rinse with another wet microfiber cleaning cloth using clean warm water. Wipe down the stovetop to remove any remaining soapy residue. Alternatively, you can rinse the cloth with water and wipe down the stovetop to ensure all the soap is removed. Repeat the process until all the sud is gone.
Step 8: Dry and Reassemble: Use a clean dry microfiber cloth or towel to dry off the stovetop thoroughly. This will help prevent water spots or streaks. Once the stovetop is completely dry.
Step 9. Polish the Top: To make the stovetop shine. Pour a few drops of Fabuloso on a soft cloth and buff. Make sure to wipe only around the burners.
Step 10: Wash the burners and Grates: Use the steel wool to scrub the burners and grates. Next, rinse and reassemble the parts back into their rightful place on the stovetop.
Step 11: Clean and Store Your Cleaning Tools: Rinse out the sponge or cloth used for cleaning the stovetop with warm water. Squeeze out any excess water and allow it to air dry. If you used a scrub brush, rinse it thoroughly and remove any trapped soap or debris. Store your cleaning tools in a clean, dry place for future use.
