Hi there, Koko here.
We’re moving to a new house soon…. that means, massive CLEANING has to be done !!!!
(from today you may see more of my cleaning posts coming up…well you know the reasons now 😀)
I had to clean a stove top. You know, I had these burns …. yuck!
I usually clean after cooking but it’s hard to take it off with just a sponge with soap.
I was searching what’s the best way to clean… and, I saw someone was talking about this on Japanese twitter:
“You can clean with egg shells!”
Are you skeptical? …. hell yes, me too.
But please see this photo!
Isn’t this AMAZING!?!?!
It’s a real result…. I did it!! I’m honestly blown away lol and super happy with it.
Are you curious? …. Let’s learn this hacks now!
How to Clean a Stove Top Glass
Here is the method I did.
Things you need
Water and Egg Shells. (that’s it. no joke)
* option – spray bottle
* option – old panty hose
You can put egg shells into a panty hose and scrub like a sponge.
But in this post I will show you the lazy way 😛 using your fingers!
Cleaning Step 1. Breaking Egg shells
Break egg shells into small, small pieces. I did grounded but some parts I had to break with fingers.
You don’t have to use a grinder if you don’t have it. Break with fingers – totally possible.
Cleaning Step 2. Water it
Spray water to the stove where you want to clean.
If you don’t have spray it’s still okay. Just give some water drops – that works too.
Cleaning Step 3. Sprinkle Egg Shells
Sprinkle some of egg shells.
Give a good amount of egg shells. It’s hard to clean if it’s too little.
Cleaning Step 4. Scrub !!
Scrub!!!! Scrub the hell out of it.
You will start to see brown water…. yup, that’s the burnt. It’s coming off!
Cleaning Step 5. Wipe it away
After you think it’s done, swipe it with paper towel, or clothes. Be careful – the towel is going to be very dirty, so I recommend using something you were to toss.
I used the clean, dried, old sock that I was going to throw away. I cut it to a small piece to dry the stove top.
After that, toss it!
That’s all, pretty simple and super eco-friendly I’d say.
Don’t Egg Shells Give Scratches?
Before I tried this method, I wondered, “won’t it get scratched? ”
It’s normal to worry this. so, I gave a test at first….. I scrubbed the small, small area…. and I didn’t see any scratches.
I advice to try with small, small area first.
But some say you shouldn’t use it for plastic or rubber materials, painted, nor teflon pans, – it will give scratches with high chance.
To be sure, try small area first – or even ask the factory if possible!
I hope this post was inspiring 🙂 Thanks for reading!
