Happiness is a {green} clean stove

I don't know about you, but there is nothing better than a clean kitchen. I think of the kitchen as the heart of the home. This is where you spend time cooking food for your family, sit down and talk over food and wine, and it is just so warm and cozy. So when my kitchen was a distater area for the last couple of months, I decided not to wait for April {with Operation Project Organize} I needed to fix it NOW!
Green cleaning of the kitchen stove
This is not the post that I originally had planned to post for you for St. Patty's Day, but some things are too good to hold back. So instead of green themed projects and a green themed food {which was the original plan} I am telling you about how to be green and naturally clean your kitchen, specifically your stove.

Our kitchen had not been deep cleaned in a while. Something inside of me clicked today and I NEEDED to clean. Thankfully my daughter understood me when I told her to take a long nap and let me clean - she gave me 2.5 hours! 

Our stove was in disarray. I have only had one cleaner be able to get all of the grease, grime and stuck on nastiness off of our stove - and that cleaner required proper ventilation. In an effort to go green, I decided to try Mrs. Jones Soapbox's Soft Scrub on the mess. I reviewed the product back in December for the bathroom and it did an amazing job {you can take a look here} so why wouldn't it work on this job. And while I am super embarrassed to show you the state that our stovetop was in, I am happy with the outcome.

With little to no elbow grease, I was able to easily take up the mess that was there. I simply took a spoonful of the soft scrub and put it on the stove. With a warm, damp rag, I wiped the scrub all around the stove top. I let it sit for a minute or two and then wiped it up with the other side. As you can see, it all came off! I was so surprised/shocked/amazed, I stopped to take this exact picture {which is why the quality is a little off}. 

I did manage to get the other side done too :). There was a little leftover film and streaks on the stove so I just sprayed Mrs. Jones Soapbox's Sparkle on the stove and wiped away.

It was the easiest way I have found to clean our stovetop. And the best part is that there are no harsh chemicals and my kitchen smelled good after cleaning. 

Be sure to see how I am using green products through the next month with my Spring Cleaning coming up! I am sure you will see more of Mrs. Jones Soapbox too :)

Happy Cleaning!
