Although there are many pros to having an electric stove, there is one big con – and that’s having to deal with the constant stains and burn marks that result from cooking. If you have an electric stove, then you know how difficult it is to remove these marks. Try as you might, all the scrubbing in the world doesn’t seem to make much of a difference.

Thankfully, you can use a few natural products that you probably already have at home to tackle the job. Many people swear by the combination of baking soda and distilled vinegar. Simply sprinkle some baking soda over the surface of the stovetop, then spray a generous amount of vinegar on top. Dunk a towel in hot water, then wring out the excess water. Place the towel over the entire surface of the stove.

Let the towel sit for about 20 minutes. Then, use a scrub brush to wipe away the stains and burn marks. You should only have to use gentle scrubbing, as the baking soda, vinegar, and warm towel will have already done most of the work for you. When you’re done scrubbing, use a damp cloth to wipe clean.

A great alternative to distilled vinegar is using fresh lemon juice. Simply repeat the above steps, but swap out the vinegar for the lemon juice. The acid in both the vinegar and lemon juice activate the baking soda, eating away at even the most stubborn of stains. When you’re done, you’ll be left with a sparkling clean stovetop that looks just as it did the day you brought it home from the store. Now get at it, and happy cleaning!
