There are some parts of your kitchen that are going to get used more than others. Your hob is one of them. The majority of dinners will require you to fire up the hob and this means that in no time at all, this part of your kitchen is going to get a little grubby.
If you want to get it sparkling again, then we have put together our top tips for getting yourself a sparkling ceramic hob, which is ready for you to cook on.
Remove all the food first
There is absolutely no point making the effort to scrub away at the hob if it is still full of food. You should always make sure that all the food is removed first, as this means that you can tackle the stains without anything else getting in the way.
Use the right product
Once you are ready to get cleaning, it is best to use a cleaning fluid that is specially designed to tackle ceramic hob. You should only need a small amount, which can then be wiped around the hob. These particular cleaning fluids are completely smooth and they will make sure that you can rub away the food and not leave any marks or scratches. It is always a good idea to read through the instructions before you squirt the product on of course.
Let it soak in
It is a good idea to let the cleaning solution have some time to work, as this means that any stains and debris will be softened and easier to removed. You should keep your eye on the product though, as if it dries out completely this won’t help you cleaning it!
Grab a cloth
When it comes to cleaning your hob a microfibre cloth is going to be a good idea. This is because this particular cloth is not only strong, but is also soft too. Which means that you won’t damage the delicate surface.
Tackle trickier stains
If you find that the microfibre cloth isn’t quite doing the trick, then it is time to grab something a little more unusual. Scrunched newspaper can be a great helper, not only is it rougher in texture which will help to remove stubborn stains, but it won’t damage the ceramic hob.
Never use anything abrasive
The last thing you will want to do is to use any kind of abrasive fluid on your ceramic hob. You may think that this is the best thing for tackling tough stains, but you can end up damaging your precious hob top. Similarly, you don’t want to use anything like a knife on the hob top as this can also scratch the surface.
If your hob is looking less than clean, then there are ways that you can make sure it looks its best again, you just need to be careful what you use, as you could end up making the problem a whole lot worse.
