How to clean your white enamel cooktop (chemical free with stuff already in your kitchen!)
I have an old stove that is on its last legs. I still want it to shine! I have used Formula 409 for years to get out the cooked on stains and keep my stovetop clean. However, the knuckleheads at Clorox changed their formula to an antibacterial formula that is inferior to the original. Don't mess with a good thing people! It doesn't take out the cooked on stains any more. Boo hiss! I poked around on the web and found a formula that I thought I might try. Wow! It worked great. Bonus - it is a chemical free cleaner made from stuff I already had! Thought I would pass it on.
That's it! Mix to a thick paste. Put on stovetop and rub into stain with your finger. You can let it sit for a few minutes to bleach out stubborn stains but I didn't find that necessary! (P.S. - this magic formula will also remove stains from plastic food storage containers.)
Fabulous! It bleached the stains that 409 couldn't touch. Check out these pictures. This is the picture of my stovetop after I cleaned it with antibacterial 409.
