  1. Soak the grates in hot, soapy water

    Let the grates sit in a basin of hot, soapy water for about 15 minutes to loosen burned-on particles.

  2. Scrub the grates

    Scrub the grates with non-metal soap pads to remove the loosened particles.

  3. Rinse the grates

    Hold the grates under running, warm water to remove the soap and dirt.

  4. Seal the grates in bags with ammonia

    Place each partially-cleaned grate in a large plastic bag or container. Add 1/2 cup of household ammonia to each bag or container, and seal the bags with a rubber band or put lids on the containers.

  5. Let the ammonia work overnight

    Leave the grates overnight. The ammonia fumes chemically remove the rest of the grime.

  6. Rinse the grates

    Hold the grates under warm, running water to remove all of the ammonia and any last dirt residue.

  7. Polish the grates

    Dry the grates with a soft cloth. Put the grates back on the stove top.
