Clear Home & Office = Clear Heart & Mind. I can help you get there! Servicing the greater Los Angeles Area. I will also arrange for your items to be donated, or I will take them myself and send you the tax receipts.
It is easier and less painful than you COULD EVER imagine! And it is more liberating than you WILL EVER imagine!
Do you have an old stove top that looks like one of these??
I must say, there is NOTHIN' in the kitchen that feels better than a CLEAN STOVE!! (Aside from the obvious homemade Snickerdoodle) But for $10 and elbow grease, that up there ^^ can look easily like this:
Simply lift the top of the stove off. It shouldn't be attached,
as to get to the pilot lights easily.
NOTE OF SAFETY: Do No Use Spray Paint INSIDE the house or ANYWHERE near stove, Gas OR Electric! I'm taking no chances!
Get all "removable" dirt and food off of it - if you have access, a hose and scouring pad works great. Even a putty knife can really help with that piece of rigatoni from 1964.... If there is a lot of uneven surface, sand it down with a fine "metal" sandpaper. Found at any hardware store, $2 - $4.
Then I simply spray painted it. I found a High Heat (photo below) BBQ Paint from Rustoleum - withstands 1200 degrees F ~ That's Hot! At the moment, it only comes in white & black, and flat finish - so you will not get that high gloss look. I thought that might bug me, but it hasn't - not one bit. In fact, when it was completely dry, I rubbed it down with a very small bit of olive oil - really worked into the surface - gave it a very nice subtle sheen.
So, lay everything flat while spraying, so you do not get paint dripping down the surfaces. Include your drip pans and burner grates - the whole stovetop can look like new! Allow to dry at least a whole day, depending what climate you're in. Being in LA, I have an advantage, but I still let them dry about 12 hours. If you're not in a dry climate, spray paint them outside and carefully bring
