You will need a few basic cleaning supplies to remove the melted plastic. These include:
Using the putty knife or scraper, gently scrape off as much of the melted plastic as possible. Be careful not to scratch the surface of the burner.
Once you’ve removed as much of the melted plastic as possible, use the sponge or rag and warm water to clean the burner. Add a small amount of mild detergent to the water for added cleaning power. Use the toothbrush to scrub away any remaining pieces of plastic or debris.
After cleaning the burner, use a dry cloth or paper towel to dry it off. Make sure to remove any remaining water to prevent rusting.
Once the burner is dry, reassemble it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
By following these steps, you should be able to remove melted plastic from your stove burner and restore it to a clean and functional condition. Remember to always turn off the burner and allow it to cool down before cleaning, and to use caution when scraping or scrubbing to avoid damaging the burner.
