How to Clean Baked-on Grease on a Stainless Stove Top

Baked-on grease accumulates from time to time on your stove top. If you make a mess while preparing meals, and if you allow the grease to cook on instead if wiping it up immediately, it becomes even more of an issue.

Remove baked-on grease with vinegar.

Things You Will Need

  • White vinegar
  • Paper towels
  • Nylon scrubbing pad
  • Cleaning rag

Baked-on grease accumulates from time to time on your stove top.  If you make a mess while preparing meals, and if you allow the grease to cook on instead if wiping it up immediately, it becomes even more of an issue.

Instead of scraping to remove the grease, use a common kitchen item that dissolves the grease with little work required on your part. 

  1. Soak paper towels in white vinegar and place over the baked-on grease. The vinegar naturally loosens the grease from the stainless stove top. Let the paper towels sit for about 10 minutes.
  2. Scrub over the area with the same paper towels to remove the grease. If needed, soak a nylon scrubbing pad in white vinegar and scrub over the grease buildup. Continue until all grease is removed.
  3. Wipe the area with a clean, damp rag and follow up with a dry cleaning rag.

Things You Will Need

  • White vinegar
  • Paper towels
  • Nylon scrubbing pad
  • Cleaning rag
