How to remove burn marks from your stove using natural ingredients baking soda and lemon juice

I’m just gonna say it…I hate glass stove tops!  In my old home I had a gas stove that I absolutely loved, but when we moved into our current home we got stuck with electric.  At first I didn’t think much of it.  I grew up with electric stoves and only had gas for a few years, so I naturally thought I could adapt back to electric.  Man was I wrong!  I felt like in just the first day of cooking I already had burn marks and it looked like my stove was ruined. Here’s how to remove burn marks from stove.

And sadly in my mind I really did think that it was ruined haha!  But the last few weeks I thought that there had to be a way to clean my stove that did not involve using a razor blade.  Surely there are other people that are in the same boat as I am.  And luckily for me there were.  After doing some research, it seemed like a lot of the advice was to use baking soda and vinegar.  I know that my mom loves the smell of vinegar, so she is not going to like my next statement, but I did not want my house smelling like that.  I decided to use lemon instead and am so thrilled with how this little project turned out!

I literally only used 2 things to clean my stove…baking soda & lemon. Most of you probably already have these items in your home…

I then squeezed the lemons over the baking soda. I couldn’t believe how it started to bubble…it was like a science experiment!

I let this sit for about 10 minutes and then I used a sponge to clean it off.  I couldn’t believe how easily most of the burn marks came off!  I had to scrub a few problem areas, but it literally took me about 10 minutes to clean off the surface.

    No playing Im having this same problem with mine! I totally need to try this because I was all but at my wits end with chemical based cleaners. You guys are the best!

    WOW that is amazing, I’m going to give it a try and I always dislike how my hands smell with heavy cleaners so this is much better. Great tip and the pictures are fab. xo Lisa

    I’m with you! We just bought a home where we are “stuck” with an electric stove… and a glass cook top, which I also hate. Thanks so much for the tip. I’m going to try it tonight!

    Great to know! We don’t have a glass top stove anymore, but in our old house I struggled with this all the time. I ended up just using a razor blade to scrape the burn marks off, but this would’ve been much less tedious! Thanks for sharing!

    Another example of how we were convinced it was the best stove ever! I jsut threw away my single edged razor blade this morning becaue it was shot. Trying this first thing tomorrow! Linda

  1. […] I love silver platters!  There is just so much you can do with them to decorate a space and I just overall love the look of them.  So when I spotted this awesome silver platter by F.B. Rogers at Goodwill for $15, I knew I had to scoop it up.  What a deal!  I knew it just needed a little TLC, but I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to bring it back to its former glory.  With my recent obsession with baking soda I figured this could do just the trick to clean the tarnished silver (if you missed last week’s post about how I cleaned my stove, click here.)
