Supplies: Dishwashing Soap, Sponge, Baking Soda, Scouring Pad, Clean Cloth
Make sure your burners are completely cool. Remove the grates (on a gas range) or burner coils (on an electric range). Move off to the side for separate cleaning.
Get a bowl and fill with lukewarm water and dishwashing soap. Dip a cloth or sponge into the bowl and scrub the burners. For an electric range, you want to avoid getting the sockets wet.
For the more difficult stains, get out the baking soda. Mix with water to form a thick paste and coat the burners with it. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then remove with a sponge. Rinse to remove any leftover paste.
