Natural and DIY Ceramic Stove Top Cleaning

10 October 2012

I had a free Saturday and so I spent the better part of a morning cleaning up the kitchen. I recently stumbled upon a natural way of cleaning the burnt "gunk" from our ceramic stove top. Normally Mr. Collier and I use a Scotch Brite enzymatic product that involves a lot of scrubbing. So I figured that I would give this a try. First sprinkle baking soda on the affected areas. The amount that I used ended up being WAYYYYY too much. Take the "a little dab will do it" approach.  


Then you fill a bowl with Dawn dish soap and hot soapy water. Take a rag or hand towel that you feel comfortable using and soak it in the water/soap bowl. You can sort of see the bowl in the right hand side of the picture below. Wring out the rag so that it isn't dripping wet and lay it over the sprinkled baking soda as shown below for 15 minutes. This would be a perfect time to tackle the floor or empty the dishwasher. 

After the 15 minutes has expired, I would recommend you putting gloves on for this part, you move the rag around to make a paste out of the baking soda. Since I used too much baking soda initially  it was quite challenging to wipe it all off. But I did notice that the stains on the cook top were coming off without very much scrubbing at all. The downside of this procedure is that I found the baking soda to linger for some time. It took multiple rounds of wiping with both a dry and wet towel before all of the baking soda was gone. But the cooktop was clean! This pin works!
