ABC’s of Clean: Make Your Dirty Stovetop Shine

You’ve finished dinner, washed the pots and pans, and put away the leftovers. Time to relax. Not so fast—you forgot to clean the stove top. In the world of cleaning, we often save the worst for last. It can be a challenge to remove food and grease from the stove, especially when it has been neglected a bit.

Our how-to guide helps make cleaning less of a chore. Cheers to a clean kitchen in record time, thanks to Scrub Daddy!

Depending on what type of stove-top you have these instructions may vary.

How to clean up light stains on your stove top

What You’ll Need:

  • Scrub Daddy sponge
  • Kitchen sink
  • Mild dish soap
  • Microfiber cloth
  • An old rag 
  • Glass cleaner

Directions:

  1. Set aside any removable grates/knobs.
  2. Saturate your Scrub Daddy completely with cold tap water (the foam should feel firm); quickly move to your stove top.
    Pro Tip: Fight your natural instinct here to wring out the water! It’s the constant contact with the cold that keeps FlexTexture® foam firm, in-turn delivering more scrubbing power.
  3. Add some dish soap to the area you are intending to clean and start scrubbing. Be sure to get the burnt piece of macaroni that missed your mouth earlier.
  4. Once you feel all the debris has lifted, use a rag to soak up the excess water and wipe away the mess.
  5. Finish with a spray of glass cleaner and a clean microfiber towel.
  6. Replace burners. Pat self on back.

How to remove moderate stains from your stove top

What You’ll Need:

  • Scrub Daddy sponge
  • Kitchen sink
  • Baking soda
  • Mild dish soap
  • Microfiber cloth
  • An old rag 
  • White vinegar
  • Glass cleaner
  • Spray bottle (optional)

Directions:

  1. Begin by filling your sink with hot soapy water. Disregard if you have an electric cooktop.
    Pro Tip: Soap containing a degreasing agent is ideal.
  2. While waiting for the sink to fill, saturate your Scrub Daddy with tap water and transfer to freezer.
  3. Remove grates/knobs that can easily be re-assembled; submerge and leave in the sink to soak.
  4. Squirt some dish soap onto your stove top and retrieve your frozen Scrub Daddy. Working in small circular motions, scrub the entire surface. Use an old rag to soak up the excess water.
  5. Next, sprinkle an even layer of baking soda over high traffic areas. Pour (or spray if using a bottle) white vinegar to coat. Watch *in amazement* as it bubbles for 30 seconds.
  6. Use your Scrub Daddy to carefully incorporate the mixture, keeping away from the burners. Let the paste work its magic for about 10 minutes.
    Pro Tip: This happens to be just enough time to enjoy a glass of wine.
  7. OK, break’s over. Now run some warm water over your Scrub Daddy so he becomes soft and flexible. Scrub the entire surface one last time; wipe away the mess with a damp rag.
    Pro Tip: Place your fingers in Scrub Daddy’s eyes to better navigate tight corners.
  8. Finish with a glass cleaner and a clean microfiber towel.
  9. If you have items soaking, drain the water and use your Scrub Daddy to remove any resistant particles.
    Pro Tip: For grates shaped with straight prongs, Scrub Daddy’s mouth delivers a quick 360° cleaning.
