All you need is a gallon zipper bag, a regular zipper bag and ammonia. Vivienne stresses the importance of using simple, basic ammonia and not trying to mix it with bleach or any other substance.
Take 1/4 cup of ammonia and seal it with one of the burners in a gallon zipper bag. Leave the bag out on a cookie sheet overnight so that the fumes can dissolve the grease and hardened oil. The next day, simply wipe it clean using a sponge.

Stove burners aren't the only surfaces that can be effectively cleaned with ammonia. In fact, it is a common cleaning agent found in many store-bought cleaners, according to Thrifty Fun. When used alone, ammonia is a great solution to clean electric ovens, remove bath tub soap scum, clean bathroom tiles, repel moths, and make crystal sparkle, according to Readers Digest.
However, it often comes mixed with harsh chemicals that aren't essential to cleaning and can in fact be harmful. Always make sure to do your research before experimenting around the home with it!
