I am the queen of my castle and my throne is the kitchen, better said in front of the stove. It seems that there’s the perfect place for a queen to rule her kingdom, commonly known as home! On the other hand, I enjoy cooking for my family and treating them with a “goodie” once in a while! But, every throne gets a little bit dirty sometimes, especially when you’re boiling milk to make some rise and raisins dessert.

It just happened! I turned around and the milk boiled over my 2 weeks old black ceramic stove top. Great, Mrs. Queen! How am I supposed to clean the mess when nothing seems to work in cleaning that burned milk! Hence, I start googling for the best solution in removing burnt milk from ceramic stove top without scratching it and lucky, lucky me. I found it!

Things you’ll need:

  • Dish detergent
  • Baking soda
  • Olive oil
  • Sponge
  • Spoon
  • Cloth

Steps you need to take:

1. Turn off the burners.
2. Pour olive oil over the burned residues and let it act for several minutes. Olive oil will soften and help loosen the burned-on areas easily due to its lubricating properties.
3. Now, scrape the burned milk residue with a spoon. This process should be done gently by pressing lightly with the utensil to reduce the chance of cutting into the ceramic. Use a soapy sponge to wipe away the burnt residues.
4. Prepare a baking soda and water paste until it gets to the consistency of a toothpaste. Apply the paste over the burnt area and let it act for 10 minutes. Wipe with a damp cloth the baking soda paste.
5. The last steps is to clean the ceramic stove with warm, sudsy water. Hence, you may wipe the burners with dish detergent to remove any baking soda paste residues and then wipe it again with a damp cloth.

Tip: you may prepare the baking soda paste with lemon juice instead of water for extra cleaning power, especially if the burnt is really heavy.
