Cost Savings

Benefits

Heat, steam, cooking odors, and perishable foods are bound to leave their mark on the kitchen, and especially on appliances. These tips for cleaning appliances will help your wallet and the environment.

Stovetops and Ovens

Range burner pans and stovetops are often the victims of spills and boilovers. It’s usually not practical to deal with such messes right away, but as soon as possible, wipe up the spill with a damp sponge dipped in baking soda. For sauces and oily spills, using sprinkled cornstarch in lieu of baking soda works well because of the absorbent qualities of cornstarch. The soiled paste can be wiped away easily once it has soaked up the spill.
