All that glitters

When a girl likes to cook, at some point, she has to clean. Especially if oatmeal should happen to boil over and send hot milk dripping down the front of the stove. Not that this has ever happened to me, and if it did, I’m sure I would never let it just sit there until the weekend when I had more time to deal with it. Nope.

One of the reasons I hate cleaning my stainless steel appliances is because the chemicals they sell in the store for this task smell so nasty that I feel like I’m killing brain cells every time I clean. Dang sensitive sniffer. So that combined with my general quest to keep my life green led me to my good friend Mr. Google looking for advice. And here’s what I discovered:

Use cooking spray.

I wiped the stove down with a soapy rag, then sprayed it with canola oil spray, and buffed it with a dry rag. So clean, shiny, and simple that I did all my kitchen appliances right away.

One caveat:

If you have a dog who likes to help, this may not work so well.

What about you? How do you clean stainless steel appliances? And has anyone figured out how to clean a glass cooktop?

  1. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works well on stainless steel, also. And maybe Lucy won’t be quite as excited to help with that!
