Got burn stains on your electric stove? This is how you remove them

It’s super easy to get rid of those nasty burn stains on your glass-top electric stove!

Accidentally getting burn stains on your glass-top electric stove can be a real bummer. It’s important to remove them as quickly as possible because otherwise, you run the risk of the stains becoming permanent. Luckily, it’s not that difficult at all to clean a stain like this and you don’t need that many products either. Make sure you never clean your electric stove with cleaning agents that are abrasive, though. This abrasive quality will cause scratches in the glass, and that’s not what you want. It’s much better to use the following method – your electric stove will look nice for much longer!

Follow these steps to clean your glass-top electric stove.

Step 1

First, wait until the stove has cooled down completely. If you’re cleaning it straight away, you run the risk of burning yourself. Plus, if you clean a hot stove top with a cloth, it’s possible you only make things worse since the cloth could burn stuck to the surface. Then you’ll be even worse off. So, don’t get impatient and let the stove cool down.

Step 2

Remove the worst of the burnt on food with the back of a butter knife. Be very careful about this so you won’t leave behind any scratches. Keep going until you’ve removed the worst parts and the surface feels smooth again. Having difficulty scraping the burn stain off? Moisten the stove top with cleaning vinegar, leave this to sit for 20 minutes and then try again.

Step 3

Scoop two tablespoons of baking soda into a small bowl and slowly add some water to this so you get a thick paste. Rub this paste onto the burn stain and leave this to sit for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4

Use a sponge to scrub the burn stain and then add another layer of the baking soda paste. Now add three drops of lemon juice.

Step 5

Wipe away the paste with a moist cloth and you glass-top electric stove will look as good as new again!
