DIY- kitchen appliance cleaning detergent.
This solution is pretty much an easy go-to multi purpose cleaner since it can be used to clean most kitchen appliances including both glass top electric stoves and coil burner stoves, and what's great about it is that its made with ingredients you'd generally have in your pantry.
What you'll need:
Dish detergent -optional if you have a greasy mess
What to do:
Simply mix baking soda with a little water until it forms a paste with a thickness to your liking (thicker if you need to do a light scour on a surface).
Why it works
It seems too good to be true that you can just raid your pantry for effective cleaning products but baking soda is the real deal when it comes to cleaning - and the best part is that so cost effective. Its used to neutralize both acids and bases and is a great deodorizer. Used on a stove top as a light scouring agent make it into a paste or use it a little bit more diluted its your choice.
