The most challenging part about cleaning gas stoves is that they have several parts including the knobs and grates, which are difficult to clean if left for extended periods of time. The key is not to let the grates and knobs get overly dirty and to apply The Kitchn’s thorough cleaning method to your stovetop once per week. The removable knobs soak in soapy warm water while you clean the rest of the stovetop and the grates get scrubbed with a scrub brush in the sink. By using a combination of dish soap and a more abrasive scrub brush, the stains and baked on food will comes away from the grates easily leaving you with a stove that looks brand new.

If you are wondering what the best cleaning products for home are, particularly where it concerns the kitchen, the answer is that natural chemical-free cleaners are the safest and often work just as well as chemical-based cleaners.
