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.

It just happened! I looked back for only 2 seconds and the boiled milk spilled over my 2 weeks old ceramic stove top. Great, Mrs. Queen! How am I supposed to clean the mess when nothing seems to work in cleaning that mess! So 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 stove eye.
2. Pour olive oil over the burned residues and let it act for several minutes. Olive oil will soften the burned-on areas due to its lubricating properties.
3. Now, scrape the burned milk residue with a spoon. This process should be done gently by pressing lightly the tool to reduce the chance of scratching the ceramic. Use a soapy sponge to wipe away the burnt residues.
4. Prepare a baking soda and water mix until it gets the consistency of a toothpaste. Apply the paste over the burnt area and let it act for 10 minutes. Wipe the baking soda paste with a damp cloth.
5. The last step is cleaning the ceramic stove with warm water. Wipe the stove eye with dish detergent to remove any baking soda paste residues and then wipe it again with a damp cloth.

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