Removing Burnt-on Food from Ceramic Cook Top


You will have to trust me on this one.  I had a yucky, stubborn black, burnt blob–well, in the shape of a blob but by now it just looked like a stain– on my ceramic cook top.  I have been trying everything to remove that.  Needless to say, the “Ceramic Cook Top Cleaner” didn’t do the trick.  Where do you turn to find everything you need to know about everything?  I mean besides Pinterest.  GOOGLE!!  I found a list of possibilities so clicked on one and watched the YouTube video. Yeah, not too crazy about that one.  Clicked on the next one and BINGO. Tried it out. NAILED IT!!!  For real, with stuff I already had at home.  Sure wish I could have thought to take a BEFORE shot, but who knew this would work so well that I would want to share it with the world?

  1. Small Dish
  2. Baking soda
  3. Lemon juice
  4. Microfiber cloth
  1. Mix a paste of baking soda and water in a small dish. It should be the consistency of toothpaste.
  2. Spread the paste over the burnt area and allow it to set for about 12 minutes. Do not allow to sit too long or it will dry out. Really it will.
  3. Pour a little lemon juice (bottled worked for me!) over the paste and let it fizz to help release tougher stains.
  4. After 12 minutes, gently scrub the area with a soft cloth or plastic scrubber. Do not use anything abrasive or it will scratch the surface. Found that out the hard way one time.
  5. Repeat as necessary until food is gone. GONE I tell you! So happy right now.
  6. Clean off surface with a wet cloth or paper towel.
  1. Once I can find my source again I will include a link where you can get complete instructions. I only included the portion that applied in my situation. You're welcome.
