As a mom, I am always cleaning something. This is not by choice, but out of necessity. Hubby made a great brisket the other day. Then about four days later, while scrubbing the counters - for the 50th time this week - I decided to take the burners off the stove.
What is this sticky stuff?
Where is it coming from?
There is more?!
I open the stove top to see this. Ugh barbeque sauce had spilled over and down here.
I was absolutely not thrilled. However, I do know an easy way to clean it. Even after several days.
- Take a very wet wash rag and cover the mess.
- Walk away for about 15 minutes.
When you come back, rub the mess. This is not difficult, and I did not have to put a lot of upper body strength into it. Nor did I use any smelly chemical cleaner. Just water. Obviously this is not finished, but you can already see the difference!
Step 3 - repeat steps one and two.
After about an hour, the stove is clean.
Yeah, it's that easy. It's not super fast, but with only water and a towel - I will take the little extra time. It may not have taken so long if I didn't keep getting distracted, but you know how it is being a mom....
