Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge – Day 12
Day 12: Clean the Oven and Cook Top
Have you noticed we’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen during this challenge? For good reason! For one thing, we definitely have kitchens on the brain because we are so excited over this new video workshop! And for another, our kitchens tend to be taxed to the max during the holidays. Giving extra attention to this part of the house now means the heart of our homes will be pumping at its best during the upcoming festivities.
So before we boil the potatoes and bake the pumpkin pie, let’s give the oven and burners a thorough cleaning. How you do this will vary by cook top and oven type, so refer to your owners’ manuals for best results! I do prefer to be a bit “greener” in my cleaning, so where my owner’s manual suggests Soft Scrub I opt for Bon Ami instead.
I hope the weather where you are allows for some open windows, because I usually need some extra ventilation while cleaning my oven! Now that things have gotten a good scrubbing, I will commit to wiping up spills promptly to keep my stove and oven in top shape for the holidays.
