Is anyone else a super messy cook???? NO, just me. Hmmm??!!! Well I cannot deny that EVERY time I finish cooking my stove looks pretty much like this...
I am not sure if it has anything to do with my need for speed and dislike of low cook setting or what. BUT WOWZA what a mess!!! So I was so thrilled when I read about HOW TO CLEAN A FLAT/CERAMIC STOVE in one of the cleaning books I recently read ( not sure which one because they are already back at the library...oops!!). Anyway...normally I use a special stovetop cleaner and a little elbow grease and get my stove pretty clean....when I manage to get the time to clean it at all that is. BUT I found my new found tip so helpful I thought I would share. HERE GOES....The answer is Baking Soda. YEP. Worked WAY better than the stuff I bought in the store. You just sprinkle it on (I use enough to cover the whole yucky mess) and then sprinkle some water over it. Then I used a toothbrush to scrub off the yuck. I took a picture after just a few weak scrubs---comes off super easy.
I also read that if it is REALLY cooked on. Do the same thing but throw a little vinegar on top of the baking soda. It is neat....it gets all fizzy...but I am not sure it worked any better than straight backing soda.
In case you cannot tell...this totally rocked my world!!!! Simple pleasures in the day of a stay at home mom I guess:)
