Luckily, if you're hoping to get your appliances white again, there are a number of tricks you can try. Read on to learn more about how to clean a white stovetop or any other white appliance in your GASLAND kitchen.
Try an all-purpose cleaner
This is probably the simplest way to tackle your yellowing problem when you're thinking about how to clean white appliances. You'll want to make sure that the product you choose contains bleach, as these types of cleaners are most likely to be effective against yellowing.
The process is easy. Just spray your all-purpose cleaner onto a clean cloth, and wipe it on your appliance. (Test a small area first to make sure the bleach won't cause any damage.) Next, rinse the surface with a clean, wet cloth. If all has gone according to plan, you should find yourself with a much cleaner, brighter GASLAND appliance.
Grab your baking soda
If your all-purpose cleaner doesn't end up doing the trick, another product you can try is good old-fashioned baking soda. Just take a damp cloth, and sprinkle a good amount of baking soda on it. Wipe the cloth along the appliance, particularly in any yellowing areas. Then wipe the area again with a clean, wet cloth to rinse off the residue.
For narrow, hard-to-access areas and crevices, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush or similar implement to work away at the yellow stains.
Pull out all the stops with cream peroxide
This is an approach that can work on smaller appliances. First, you'll need to head to your favorite hair supply place to buy a bottle of cream peroxide. Then, you'll want to use a toothbrush or similar instrument to evenly apply the cream peroxide to the surface of your appliance. (Make sure you're wearing gloves when you do this and that you have covered any stickers with tape to protect them.)
Next, you'll tightly seal your appliance in a large Ziploc bag or clear trash bag and set it in the sun. (This is why we say it's best to save this approach for smaller appliances.) Leave it in the sun, sealed in its bag, for several hours, making sure to rotate it every hour. The UV rays from the sun will interact with the cream peroxide to reduce the yellowing on your appliance.
When your appliance is done "baking," take it out of the bag and wipe it down with a damp cloth. Make sure to allow it to dry completely before using it.
