Thanks to the advice of Home EC 101, I was able to get my dirty and dingy looking Smooth Top Range Clean.
Since we moved into this house back in October, I have been puzzled on how to get my Range back to looking as pretty as it did the day we moved in. I had tried 409, dish soap, and just wipping hard with a paper towel, but none of my efforts paid off. I just figured that at some point, I would need to purchase a new top if I wanted it to look nice again.
So today I was cleaning my counter tops and decided to do some website surfing about my problem. I came across an article by Home EC 101 called How To Clean a Smooth Top Range/ Stove. One of the recommendations was to use Bar Keepers Friend, and since that is a staple in our house, I crossed my fingers that it would work.
First off, I made sure the stove was cool (This is so I don’t burn myself or crack the stove top). Then, of course I tested a small area first with the Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser and Polish, to verify that I would not ruin it, but it worked fine. And, after some scrubbing with a paper towel and water, the stove now looks brand new. FYI, I made sure all of the product was removed after by wetting another paper towel and wiping it clean.
I am really excited about these results! Now, this may not work for everyone’s surface so I recommend testing a small area first. If this does not work for you, check out the other ideas at How To Clean a Smooth Top Range/ Stove.
