Then, Caitlin has two friends that also have birthdays this week, with parties. So on Sat, we will go to one party, stay awhile, and then head to the second party. We had to do this last year too.
So, what about the Baking Soda? I have read several places that using Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide on your stove will clean off the black burnt stuff. So, on Monday I made a beautiful paste using the above ingredients, and slopped it all over my stove. Now, technically only one burner really needed it, but why leave the other three out. I left it on for something like three hours, and then proceeded to wipe it off. I have to say it did take a lot of the yuck off, but it also left a gritty leftover film that I do not like at all, just more work to get it off, and if you are not careful, which I was not you will plug your burners with the mixture and then yes more work. So, for now, I will stick with Mr Clean Magic Eraser, it works just as good, if not better, leaves no film and does not clog my burners. Of note this stove is old, real old, it was in rough shape when we bought the house. So, whatever mysterious stuff is on there, might never come off no matter what I use.
