The other day I canned some black beans. This is significant because whenever I heat up beans to can, they always boil over. Always. And black beans--the cooking liquid turns purpley-black. Very unsightly when spilled all over in the burner well. And then the canner, I know it's supposed to be airtight, because, well, it's a pressure canner, but mine isn't air tight. It hisses water and steam out from the sides and ends up making a mess of the burner well. Always.
I cleaned up as much of the mess as I could, (because hello--guests are coming), which wasn't very much, with a scrubby cloth and water. Then I made the magic mixture: baking soda, with enough hydrogen peroxide in it to make a paste. I applied the paste to the mess, and let it soak in, then scrubbed with my handy dandy toothbrush, et voila! Clean burners! So easy.
I have heard that you can use this magic mixture to clean pots and pans, cookie sheets, and even to whiten teeth! I would even venture to say that this stuff would clean grimy refrigerator handles quite handily (hi Uncle Bob! You could also use a "Magic Eraser" or melamine foam to clean refrigerator handles).
That's all for now! Have a great week :)
