Apart from making the cooking process optimal, a clean stove also makes it comfortable to use.

  5 April 2024 11:00 - The stove is one of the stove components that has an important function. Usually the stove burner is at the top of the stove burner. Well, its main function is to place cooking utensils so that they are sturdier and don't fall easily.

Unfortunately, this stove burner is a component that gets dirty easily. Various kinds of stains from the cooking process often fall directly onto the stove burner. Then, over time, these accumulated stains can become crusty due to exposure to the stove fire.

Apart from affecting the performance of the stove, a dirty stove can make users uncomfortable using it. Therefore, the stove stove must also be cleaned regularly. Usually some people will soak it in hot water with dish soap so that the fat and crust can come off.

However, instead of soaking it in hot water, you can use another, more practical method to clean a stove burner with a thick crust. This practical method was shared by TikTok user @yenirapidah. Through one of the uploaded videos, he admitted that he only relied on two kitchen ingredients to shed the thick crust.

Reported by BrilioFood on Thursday (4/4), the kitchen ingredients in question are baking soda and vinegar. Basically, a mixture of baking soda and vinegar is an effective cleaning agent because both have chemical properties that can remove scale and dirt.

Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is a mild abrasive and can erode the layer of dirt or scale on the surface of the stove burner. Meanwhile, vinegar contains acetic acid which can help dissolve dirt that is difficult to remove.

Well, how to use it is quite easy. First of all, place the stove burner on the floor that has been covered with tissue or paper. Then sprinkle baking soda or baking soda evenly over the entire surface of the stove burner. If so, flush with vinegar. Then let it sit for a few moments.

"There will be a chemical reaction like this (foam), the furnace crust will easily lift," said the owner of the TikTok account @yenirapidah.

Immediately after adding vinegar, immediately blend these ingredients using an old toothbrush. Then while smoothing it, rub it so that the dirt can be removed. Do this process until all the crust has fallen off and the stove is clean again.

Next, rinse the stove burner. Then wash as usual with soap and brush. Finally, rinse the stove burner in running water. After that, don't forget to dry it or wipe it with a dry cloth to make it look even more shiny.
