Cover your stove top with baking soda
  • Sprinkle baking soda over the entire stovetop.
  • Fill a spray bottle with vinegar.
  • Spray the vinegar on top of the baking soda. This will help loosen up any hardened grease.
  • Take the dishcloth out of the hot soapy cleaning solution and wring it just a little so that it does not drip but still remains wet.
  • Place it on the stovetop and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 4. Use a scraper on any stubborn stains & dry and buff the stovetop

  • Once everything has been removed and cleaned, use the microfiber cloth and buff the stovetop to a dry shine.
