I learned something new today and wanted to share it. I like to use green cleaning products when I can, so I was looking for a way to clean my ceramic top stove. I found that instead of buying the expensive cleaner, there are 2 ways to clean it. You can use Magic Eraser which I tried and it worked well. You can also use water and baking soda. And I like that idea too. Have any of you tried either of these methods and what were your results?

Thanks for the tip. I have the hardest time keeping my white stove top looking nice. I'll give them both a try.

Vinegar and baking soda vinegar has worked well for me.
For 10 years now I have used only vinegar and baking soda or hydrogen peroxide for all my cleaning.

Another green idea ,this one for a dishwasher. I have been using white vinegar as the rinse aid for years.Two litres of white vinegar costs less than $2 & lasts for months.

I use the cleaning polish that came with the top and then I put on a sealer which helps to prevent burns and stuff sticking to the glass top. I do use lemon to clean my microwave. (2-3 tablespoons heated in a cup for a minute). I find that this really helps to clean.

I have an Induction cooktop no burned no scraping or scrubbing at all as with my glass top, and warm water clean polish with a clean dry cloth. ( This is the easiest clean stove top I have ever own.) fast heat up too.

I clean my glass stove top every time I use it! I like the natural bi-carb soda too, but I also use the Cerapol cream that came with the stove top. Love Chris

Like a few more below, I like to do it before it needs it so I don't get a build up. Actually I use a steam cleaner for almost everything, so no chemicals at all!

I too have a stream cleaner. I have to use the lemon juice just to clean up after my husband makes something. :)

I have one of those too. (A messing cooking husband, that is!)

My messy cooking husband manage to chip & crack the edge of ours.I am the kitchen hand who cleans up afterwards & it was in perfect order the night before.I think he dropped a steel saucepan lid & it got the edge of the stove top.

I have tried baking powder but it did not clean as well as my usual product. I find the best way is to clean is after every time used, before there is a chance of something sticking.

Home remedies work just fine. I worked for a lady who owned a Jewelry Store and we went through Windex like crazy and I find my self using it at home too. Works great!!! Kay

I use lemon juice and let it soak. It cleans up almost anything you can spill. I have used the magic eraser too. Just remember to use gloves when you use the eraser -- it can clean the skin off your hands too. ;)

I use vinegar but allow it to soak on the top for a bit.Then I use a shaving /razor blade and scrape off any buildup. Then rinse with water. Works great.

Well, I will have to try both and see what happens. I do have the burn look round circles on mine when I need to clean it. Thanks for the tip.
