Unbelievably Effective Homemade Stove Top Cleaner

Over-sprayed cooking spray. Dinner boiled over. Hot oil that popped out of a pan. Bits of ingredients that didn’t make the pot. These minor mishaps happen to all of us and they add up. The worst part? The evidence is visible to anyone who walks in our house.

On and off for months, I’ve been trying to remove the baked-on remnants of meals past from my stove top. I dreamed of once again having a completely white stove. Regardless of how desperately I scrubbed though, my mixtures of baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice and oils were as ineffective as store-bought cleaners specially made for the job.

It wasn’t until I stumbled upon a magical mixture of two pantry staples that my problem was solved. It’s not “all-natural” or organic, but it is easy, effective and FDA-approved. I’d rather wash these two ingredients down the drain than toxic cleaning solutions. 

What solution succeeded where all others failed?

… drum roll please  …

Baking soda and Coke.

Those two inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients work magic on greasy stove tops.baking soda and coke

For an unbelievably effective homemade stove top cleaner, all you need to do is mix those two ingredients into a paste and let the paste sit on your stove top for 10 minutes. Then, use a little elbow grease and a damp cloth to rub away any leftover residue.

Like magic, your stove top will look new again. 

Warning: this recipe is not recommended for glass stove tops or anyone who wants to continue enjoying Coke without thinking: “If it destroys grease that easily, what’s it doing to my insides?”
