How do you light a stove top?

Before you light your stovetop, turn all your stovetop control knobs to the "off" position. Next, remove the burner covers and use a cloth to clean any grease or dirt off of them. Locate the pilot light ports and clean the valves using a rag or towel. You can use a match or a lighter to ignite your pilot light valves. Once that's done, replace the parts you removed and turn on one of the burners to see that it's working properly, and then turn it off.
