  • put some paper or fabrics under the stove to collect the dirt and throw it away after the cleaning;
  • unplug the appliance;

  • carefully remove the cleaning agent by wiping the surface with a sponge and dry cloth several times;
  • collect the dirt under the stove and wash the surfaces in the entire kitchen.

Instead of a cleaning agent, you can use other readily available products. For example, ammonia diluted in water (1:1), juice of one lemon mixed with vinegar (the vinegar to water ratio is 1:3.5), or grated and dissolved laundry soap.
