Ahh, the kitchen. It’s referred to as the heart of a home. A place to gather, cook and be a family. But if your house is on the market, this one room can make or break a sale! Buyers notice the little things—and believe it or not, a dirty stovetop can send the wrong message. A little grime can make your appliances look old and dated. And who wants to sink money into new appliances in a home you are trying to sell?
So roll up your sleeves, and let’s start! This Tuesday’s Tip will have your stovetop looking like new!
How to Clean a Glass Stovetop
- Bowl & Hot Soapy Water
- Baking Soda
- A Cleaning Rag
- First, fill up a bowl with some hot water and blue liquid Dawn. (don’t use generic, trust me!) and soak the rag.
- Generously sprinkle baking soda over your stovetop, making sure the areas that have scorch marks are covered.
- Squeeze out any excess water out of the rag and lay it flat on top of the stove.
- Set a timer for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes (20 if you have some serious grime), take the rag and scrub in circles. The baking soda forms this magic paste that will dissolve even the most stubborn spots. Make sure you rinse and repeat.
Want to really show off? Spray a little vinegar on it, and wipe dry. Presto! Your stovetop will look as good as new!
