stove top cleaner is easy to make, affordable and yes, very effective!
You don't need to buy expensive cleaners. Not only are they costly,
they contain dangerous chemicals. Stove cleaner for your glass stove is both affordable and chemical free! (not to mention easy!)
For some of the dangerous ingredients found in common glass stove cleaners, read below. These chemicals are very toxic to both our bodies and the environment.
The exposure just isn't necessary, read on for a couple great recipes and instructions.
Hot Soapy Dish Water
A Cleaning cloth large enough to cover area you want to clean.
Completely saturate the cloth in the hot soapy water.
Shake baking soda all over the cooled stove top.
Apply the hot soapy cloth laying it over the baking soda and allow it to rest there 20-30 minutes.
Get your gloves on and begin rubbing the cloth in a circular motion allowing the baking soda paste to scrub and remove the baked on food and grime.
Wipe the soda paste off your stove top using the soapy water and dry with a clean cloth. If this application didn't remove 100%, repeat the process.
If the surface isn't shining as much as you want, add a little distilled vinegar to your cleaning cloth and wipe again and dry with a clean cloth.
Always clean spills as soon as possible to avoid the spills becoming baked on.
Recipe 2 (good for spot cleaning or the entire stove top)
White Distilled Vinegar
Lemon Juice or Lemon Essential Oil
Fill a small glass spray bottle with the vinegar and about a Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice or if you don't have lemon juice, you can use 4-6 drops of Lemon Essential Oil. Shake well before using.
Sprinkle the baking soda over the glass surface you wish to clean. Spray the vinegar/lemon mixture over the baking soda and let it fizz and rest for about 10-15 minutes.
Rub the baking soda paste mixture in circular motion before wiping up with soapy water.
The remaining spray mixture can be used for cleaning (see Homemade Cleaners) or for room freshening spray.
