I make most of my cleaners, but am not sure how to best clean my new ceramic cooktop stove. Any recommendations for a homemade solution that won't damage it? Or, if not homemade an affordable commercial green cleaner?

subbing....
I've let some vinegar and baking soda sit on mine (soaked the bs so it was a gooey consistency) for a while and come back and wiped away... which worked really well.

Love to hear other ideas!

Mix a cup of baking soda with the juice of half a lemon and a teeny bit of vinegar, until it goes to a paste, then scrub that on and off. The lemon you juiced is good for scrubbing with, as well.

The bs mixtures sound good for deep cleaning scrubbing, but what about for just the between meal wipe downs. Can I use my all purpose spray of vinegar, water and Dr. B's?

I do all of the above too.

Vinegar in a spray bottle with a damp/wet cloth for basic cleaning and baking soda on top of the vinegar for stuck on stuff.

AFWIW, I do use barkeeper's friend for the burned on stuff that the bs+vineger won't touch... Works great!

I've used the Ecover and Earth Friendly brands of cream cleansers with a lot of success. They work better than either baking soda or vinegar.

The ceramabryte burnt-on product is mostly just citric acid, by the way. I think. I could be mistaken. Too lazy to go check.
