How to clean a ceramic cooktop

Hey, here is some useful information! This is probably the best advice I have ever shared on here! Someone should pin this to pinterest. For real.

I tried cleaning my ceramic cooktop with a method I saw on pinterest. It didn’t really do anything.

This method WORKS! And all the credit goes to my awesome grandma!

When I moved in to my townhouse the cooktop was toast. It looked baaaaad. I was actually going to replace it because it had so much caked on who knows what.

Then my sweet grandma heard of my sad cooktop and sent me some razorblades!

Here is how it works.

First, start with a dirty, COOLED cooktop, like so:

Don’t even worry about trying to wipe it down first, it doesn’t matter. Take a razor blade (make sure it’s not pointing toward you-safety first please!), angle it slightly toward the cooktop and start scraping. Kind of like a squeegee action.

A nice little dust trail will be left behind:

Last, wipe it down with a damp paper towel.

Clean cooktop!

Of course, any time you are working with sharp objects such as razor blades, be careful. This works great on my cooktop but I’m sure different manufacturers have different cooktops so I can’t guarantee it will work on every kind. Use this method at your own risk. It’s just what I do. 🙂
