Cleaning the Grates on the Stovetop

Cleaning the Grates on the Stovetop With Ammonia

I saw this pin on Pinterest about using ammonia to clean your stovetop grates with no elbow grease involved.  I didn't even know if you could buy ammonia at the grocery, but apparently you can and it's only about $2 for a gallon lifetime supply. I tried it last night and I am AMAZED at the results. Here's how I did it:

Step 1: Place your grates in gallon-sized zipper bags
Step 2: Place them in a glass baking dish in case they leak
Step 3: GO OUTSIDE with them
Step 4: Pour 2-3 tablespoons of ammonia into the zipper bag and seal [quickly--whew that stuff is powerful]
Step 5: Leave them to soak outside overnight
Step 6: In the morning, pour out the ammonia, and wipe them down with clean, soapy water. I did not scrub at all!

I am so happy with how these guys look now. Check out the difference between the grate that wasn't clean and the one that was (I did not touch up these photos at all). Pinterest saves the day again!
