Cleaning Aluminum Rings on Gas Stove Top

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?

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

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.

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

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!)

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

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

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.
