Great easy way to clean the stove top. I did use orange oil but worked wonderfully.

This far exceeded my expectations! It works WAY BETTER than ceramabrite and several other products I've tried in vain. None of them do as good a job as this simple recipe. Thanks, Breezermom! Now what have you got for stainless steel?

This is just awesome! Works way better than the expensive specialty stuff they sell for these stovetops. I abuse the bejeezus out of mine--I use cast iron for everyday cooking and do home canning as well (both are supposed to be no-nos for ceramic stovetops). This really made my cooktop shine like it did before I started all of those things! I had no essential oil so I threw in a little bit of lemon juice instead. It seems to have worked fine, as my cooktop looks fantastic! Thanks for posting! Made for Best of 2011 tag game.

This stuff really works! This was the only non chemical product that I needed in my house, for everything I use stuff I found here on the Zaar. I had no essential oil, but I'll add it next time. Thanks for the recipe.

This worked wonderfully on my 12 year old smooth top stove. I was very impressed how it removed some areas that I thought would never be sparkling again. The lemon scent was a wonderful addition too as my kitchen smells fresh! Will be using this from here on out and making some for my DD for her stove also! Tagged this recipe in the 123 Hits tag game!!

This worked much better than expected! I used this method to clean the grid of the oven after have been used many times for broiling my veggies. I placed the grid on the stove top, dusted with baking soda with a sieve and spraying the diluted vinegar. To remove the crust I used a new scrub-sponge and this worked very well.

This was a spur of the moment use, so I didn't have any of the lemon essential oil, but next time I'll try some. This worked great without it though!! I used a magic eraser type sponge and it worked so well. And I loved that I wasn't using chemicals on my stove!

Seemed to do a job job on the stuck on stuff but left a haze that took several wipes to get rid of and lots of elbow grease. Did I use too much baking soda?
