How to clean the glass surface of the electric stove: a fruit that comes in handy, which is in every kitchen
Glass ceramic hobs are an incredibly stylish choice for any kitchen. They are also safe and easy to use. But you need to be especially careful when cleaning them. Hard sponges or metal scrapers should not be used on glass ceramics, as scratches will impair the functionality of the appliance and can lead to expensive repairs.
Fortunately, one fruit that can be found in every kitchen will help to remove almost any dirt from such a stove. OBOZ.UA tells you about an effective life hack with lemon. As well as vinegar and soda if you want to remove stubborn stains and achieve the best result.
There is a concern about acidic products such as lemon juice or vinegar that they can damage surfaces. This is true for porous materials such as natural stone, but they are completely safe for glass ceramics.
Method 1: for regular cleaning
For daily cleaning of the glass ceramic hob, you can use a mixture of lemon juice and vinegar in equal proportions. You can apply it to a soft cloth or sponge, or you can keep it in a spray bottle and spray it on the stove as needed. Leave the product on for a few minutes and rinse with water. It will degrease the surface and easily clean common food spatter stains.
Method 2: for stubborn stains
If there are more stubborn marks on the stove that cannot be removed with a liquid cleaner, baking soda will help. Start by cutting a lemon in half and wiping the glass hob until the juice is well coated. Then immediately sprinkle baking soda over it. The acid of the juice and the baking soda will react and break down most of the stains. When the product stops foaming, scrub the stains with the remaining baking soda - baking soda is a mild enough abrasive not to leave scratches. But still, do not press hard. When the cleaning is complete, wipe off all that remains of the product with a damp cloth.
