Oh no, that’s terrible! The part of the ammonia that works best is actually the fumes, which is why the bags are generally a better idea. You could soak the actual stovetop with an ammonia and water solution, but I suspect that the ammonia will evaporate too quickly for it to help very much. 🙁

Hi! My bags leaked from the corners. All of them had that problem. I didn’t notice it until the morning. The ammonia damaged my table that it was on. Vinegar helped to fix some of the damage but not all. The results were great but the process was a little too extreme. Can I soak the stove part in ammonia water solution?

I just threw them in the trash with the rest of the garbage.

Sure, use a larger bag! You can use kitchen trash bags or even large contractor bags depending on how big your grates are.

Now, mine are 13x18x2. Is there a plan B?

Not necessarily, but the more time it has to work, the easier it will be to wipe away the gunk.

Ammonia is safe to use on stainless steel, but the vapors are highly flammable to please be extremely careful when using it on a gas stovetop because the pilot light may ignite the fumes.

Yep, you can totally do it in a large kitchen trash bag too! Just be sure to put the grates in the bag and set it where you plan to leave it before adding the ammonia so that you don’t have to carry it around.
