Just finished cleaning the bathroom. The stove really needs a good cleaning but I really don't feel like doing it right now...
I confess I like when my stove is clean. I feel an aesthetic joy in having it all shiny and beautiful. It's the kitchen's equivalent of having a diploma hung on the wall. But that also means the stove loses some of its usefulness, as now I worry I'll dirty it while cooking. So now I pragmatically leave it dirty, so long as its efficacy is not compromised. There's a beauty in that too, as the goo tells something about the its past trials and achievements.

Good point. I came up with a rule that if the appliance, object, etc. gets dirty to the point that I feel disgusted every time I look at it, it's time to clean it up!
I like that razor of yours. Let's call it Burensasub's razor: "if the appliance, object, etc., gets dirty to the point [one feels] disgusted every time [one looks] at it, it's time to clean it up".
