Cleaning Aluminum Rings on Gas Stove Top

0 0EmailPrintFollow

Does anyone have any non-toxic options for cleaning those aluminum/alloy rings that sit under the burners on gas stove tops? They are removable so I could soak them in something (hot soapy water doesn't cut it) - Any ideas?

You can use Steelo with the soap attached and some elbow grease this gets them back to new - but you must use the Steelo with the soap attached - it doesn't scratch.

How about scrubbing them with baking soda? It works really good on a lots of things, try it and see.

Definitely don't put them in the dishwasher. Mine went black!

If your stove rings are aluminium do NOT put them in the dishwasher. Most aluminium products will turn BLACK as a result. (And I'm still looking for a better way to clean them too!)

Either run them thru the dishwasher, or soak them in a d/w soap solution overnight

I gave up on cleaning them & started wrapping them with aluminum foil. Not the prettiest, but easy to change & always looks better than the baked on mess! Then, my husband bought the black porcelain rings, much easier to clean & the black doesn't show the crud as readily as the silver metal.

If you soak them overnight with farbric softener they will be easy to clean.
