Old stove.What is behind YOUR stove?
It's a scary question. One that frightens event the most fastidious clean freak.
First the stove dies, then we find the deal of a range and get it home. Now, were going to have to face whatever was hiding behind our stove.
We live in a house that's over a hundred years old. The stove has been here for at least 20 years, probably more. We've lived here for 10. About 5 years ago, when I got a new vacuum with lots of fancy attachments, I pulled out the stove as far as I could on my own. I climbed up on the counter and slid down as far as I could with the long hose and cleaned out whatever I could suck up. It was gross and scary. I use that long hose often, to slide all the way under the stove to get what I can. The problem is that the kitchen was tiled about 70 years ago (totally not exaggerating). The tile ends about 4 inches under the stove creating an edge that the vacuum can't accommodate. I knew we were going to find filth. So, here it is. I'm putting it all out there for the whole world to see.
Full disclosure. Don't judge.
All swept up in the dustpan.
Oven is hot!
