Do you know the frugal way to clean your glass top stove like magic? And, it uses only two things you probably already have.
I love a shiny stove, but I always hated spending $5 or more for the glass top stove cleaner. There had to be an easier and money saving way.
So, I set about looking for it. I tried a few different combinations and methods, and I have finally found the absolute easiest and most inexpensive way to get it done.
This is how to clean your glass stove top the frugal and non-toxic way.
Do you have a glass stove top that looks like this?
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t take long for my glass top stove to look like this – or worse! Sure, there are stove top cleaners out there, but they are expensive, and could be toxic. If you have a glass stove top in need of cleaning, you can most likely complete this project using things that you already have on hand!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- baking soda
- spray bottle
- scrubbing pad, like this one
- paper towel
- 2 clean, dry rags
Then, follow these steps:
1. Start by wiping the surface off with a wet rag, cleaning it of all loose debris and everything you can get off.
2. Wait for surface to dry
3. Sprinkle dry surface with baking soda, especially where the caked on areas are
4. Cover the baking soda with vinegar using spray bottle, creating a toothpaste sort of consistency, it will bubble up, which is just what it is supposed to be doing
5. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes
Use scouring pad to work on cleaning up anything that is left behind. If it has really been baked on, you may need a bit of elbow grease
When everything has been scoured off, wipe up the paste that remains with paper towel
Use one clean, dry rag and get it went. Wipe up any of the paste that remains
Finally, use your second clean, dry rag to give the glass stove top a buff and polish, and voila!!!
You should now have a glass top stove that is clean the money saving and non-toxic way!
The next time you’ve got a dirty stove, try this frugal, non-toxic, and super easy way of just getting it done.
