Stove tops can be stunning, yet their beauty may be diminished by burn marks that smudge and stain them. Luckily, even severe burn stains can be removed with ease!
Start by applying liberal amounts of baking soda over the area in which there is damage, then allow it to work its magic for 15 minutes before spraying with vinegar to fizz and break down burn stains.

1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is an inexpensive natural home cleaner that is suitable for many different surfaces and items in your home. Thanks to its mild alkalinity and slight abrasiveness, baking soda makes an effective scrubbing powder and grime remover without scratching glass or ceramic surfaces – it even removes burn marks off stovetops!
First, ensure the area afflicted by your stove top stain is cool, with all burners switched off. Next, apply a small amount of baking soda directly onto the affected area and let it set for 20 minutes while performing other kitchen duties such as sweeping or microwave cleaning.
Once the waiting period is up, begin by using a sponge or washcloth to scrub the area in which there was baking soda spillage. If there remains an unsightly mark on it, try rubbing it off using some force before wiping off with a damp towel any remaining baking soda residues.
If this doesn’t work, try spraying some white vinegar over the stain in order to dissolve and loosen its hold, making removal simpler.
Scraping can be one of the easiest and fastest ways to eliminate tough stains from your stovetop. A special scraper or plastic razor blade may work for this purpose – just ensure that it remains at an angle against the stove while applying gentle pressure for maximum effectiveness! Typically only several scrapes should be necessary before they’ve completely vanished away!
If you want an even faster solution for burning marks, try purchasing Mr. Clean Magic Eraser – it is user friendly and proven effective, although may leave behind tint that cannot be eliminated with other treatments. Please follow all directions listed on your package carefully for best results.
2. Dish Soap
As an active cook who uses your stove on a regular basis, it is likely to become stained with burn marks over time. Although unsightly, these black blemishes can also be difficult to get rid of from its surface. But don’t despair just yet–cleaning your current one may do just fine in getting rid of these unsightly black marks on its glass top surface and having it looking brand new once more!
Baking soda and dish soap are often all that’s necessary to remove stubborn burn marks from your stove top. Baking soda serves as a natural scrubbing powder which can break down acids and stains on its surface while dish soap helps dissolve and wash away food residues, leaving behind an elegant surface with minimal burn marks.
Before beginning the cleaning process on your stove, always ensure it has reached room temperature so as to avoid accidental burns or further damages to it. Next, sprinkle generous amounts of baking soda onto any affected areas and let it set for several minutes while you perform another task such as clearing out old leftovers from your fridge or sweeping your floor.
Once the baking soda has had time to do its magic, use a damp cloth or sponge to gently rub away at the burn mark until it disappears. If this fails, try scrubbing it off using a plastic scour pad before rinsing and drying your stove top using a clean towel.
If you are having difficulty with removing burn marks from your stove, why not give magic eraser a try? Mr Clean Magic Eraser is well known for being able to tackle challenges other products cannot. But keep in mind that using it may eventually shred it, so only use for extremely stubborn messes.
White vinegar can help you effectively remove stubborn burn marks on your stove top. Simply mix some with your cleaning solution or use it alone – its acid can soften any burnt-on food, making it easier to wipe away. Furthermore, this method is great for eliminating burnt-on grease – simply pour some onto any stain and leave for several minutes before wiping with a sponge or scrub brush.
Combine vinegar with baking soda and water to form a paste, which can then be applied directly onto any burned-on food or grease spots on your stove top, as well as stubborn dirt or grime from electric stove grates or heating coils. Before applying this method to gas burners, be sure to take note that caps must first be removed; while with electric models it may be better to unplug and let grates or coils cool first before cleaning them.
As another alternative, try applying toothpaste that contains baking soda directly to any stubborn dirt on your stove top, such as burn marks or grime that hasn’t responded to other cleaners. Baking soda-containing toothpaste may quickly remove food residue and grease build-up on the surface quickly. Alternatively, the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser might work just as effectively in clearing away burnt-on food debris quickly from your surface.
If you own a glass stovetop, vinegar can also help make cleaning it easy. A spray bottle is the best way to apply the liquid solution; then use a sponge with non-scratch bristles and scrub gently away grease and food stains from your cooktop using non-scratch pads such as nylon bristle pads (scouring pads can damage glass stovetops more severely than sponges). Once scrubbed off, wipe with a cloth until dry before repeating this process as often as needed until all burn marks and stains have been eliminated from your cooktop – use steel wool pads on stubborn burn marks/stains as required to completely eradicate them from your cooktop as needed!
4. Lemongrass Essential Oil
Lemongrass essential oil offers an natural solution for cleaning off stove top burn marks: its aroma has sweet, grassy and citrus notes and can help relieve tension and anxiety. Used therapeutically and as an antidepressant and stress reliever, it may even aid digestion and sleep quality. Lemongrass oil can also be added directly into lotions, soaps, shampoos or household products as a fragrance element; different forms are available such as massage oils for inhalation/vaporizer use.
Before applying the solution, allow the stain to cool before wetting a sponge or washcloth soaked with water and applying pressure with it over its area of scorch marks or scorch marks on glass stovetops. Gently rub this damp cloth over any scorch marks until they fade away or apply more wet sponge until all glue residue has been eliminated from the area of scorch mark or scorch mark. If any remain, wet it again until all glue has been eradicated from surface.
If the burn marks remain stubborn, try spraying the affected surface with vinegar and using a damp cloth to rub over it. This should help break down glue that bonds the burn mark in place, and make lifting it easier. If this fails, use a razor blade scrape it off – but be wary as it could potentially cause irreparable damage to your stovetop surface!
Essential oils can be very helpful in relieving pain and itching associated with burns. To minimize further irritation, however, use them only after your wound has completely healed before applying them directly to other parts of the skin. It is also wise to dilute any strong essential oil products before using them on other parts of the body as this could potentially irritate or burn other areas of your body.
Essential oils offer an easy and cost-effective alternative to harsh chemical cleaners when it comes to treating burns, making it convenient and feasible to do from within your own home.
