I love my glass stove top, it’s easy to wipe down, it looks good, and it’s functional. But here’s what I don’t like: trying to scrub off burnt on food!!
It happens to the best of us, we get cooking and our stirring arm gets away on us, and the next thing we know we’re watching a sautéed onion fly off the pan and sizzle as it hits the glass. . . .
Or we’re just minding our own business cooking and cleaning and feeding the baby (#momlife) and in between that next bite of pureed sweet potato and your last wipe of the counter, BLAM! Your pot boiled over and there’s nothing you can do but dab the scorching surface with your cloth hoping it won’t leave a lasting mark. . . .
Now you’re stuck with a bunch of burnt on food that’s off-putting to look at and catastrophic to your once gleaming stove top.
Oh the struggle!
Struggle no more! There’s a super simple and cheap way to clean your burn on food without breaking the bank (or your scrubbing arm!), and it’s all natural to boot!
All you’ll need is baking soda, vinegar, a spray bottle, and a cloth to wipe away the mess.
Clean your stove top with baking soda and vinegar
Step 1: Pour some vinegar into the spray bottle, just enough to spray the effected area.
Step 2: Generously sprinkle baking soda onto the glass top covering all areas that need attention.
Step 3: Spray vinegar on the sprinkled baking soda and watch the magic happen!
Step 4: Wait about 20-30 minutes, depending on the severity, then wipe with a cloth.
Step 5: Repeat as necessary. To achieve my after picture I did two applications for 25 minutes each. It may seem like a long time, but I’m ok with that if I don’t have to scrub!
There’s a pretty intense reaction when you put vinegar and baking soda together (which you probably learned in grade 6 science) but what they don’t tell you in grade school is what great baked-on-stove-top-fighting-power it has!
It is a pretty wicked homemade cleaner and there’s a lot more places to use it other than the stove top! I love that I can clean using ingredients I can actually pronounce that I know are safe for my family. And it’s super cheap!
Where do you use baking soda and vinegar to clean? Have you used it on your stovetop?
