If you cook every day, your stovetop inevitably gets dirty. Spills and splatters are a natural part of cooking. You may be in the habit of doing a quick wipedown after every use, but sometimes you just need to dig in and give the whole stovetop a thorough cleaning. The same goes for your range hood, if you have one, and that hood filter. (Never cleaned that before? No problem — we'll tell you how.)
