Follow the directions via One Good Thing by Jillee to have your electric stove looking as crystal clear as the day you bought it:


Step 1: Pour some vinegar into the spray bottle and spray the entire surface of your cooktop.

Step 2: Sprinkle a generous layer of baking soda over top.

Step 3: Using your sink or a large bucket, mix together some liquid dish soap and hot water. Wear gloves and dunk the towel in the soapy water.

Step 4: Wring out the towel a little bit so that it’s not sopping wet. Place the towel over the entire surface of the cooktop.

Step 5: After 15 to 20 minutes, remove the towel and gently scrub the cooktop with a soft scrub brush. Wipe the stovetop clean, then spray it with some more vinegar and wipe it clean again.


It’s important to remember that for stove tops that are severely stained, this hack may not be as effective only one time around. It may be best to repeat this hack again in the future. It’s also worth mentioning once more that excessive scrubbing can lead to more staining, so it’s important to space out the number of times you clean your electric stove!
