Tip Tuesday – Shinny Stoves

Do you have a smooth surface or glass top stove? They can get really dirty.  Overflowing pots and caked on food will leave the ring of death.  Not to worry, we have an easy solution. Although there are expensive cleaners and polishes out there, we like to go the cheap route. Just use a razor blade to scrape off the residue and clean as normal. Don’t waste time and money on hour long solutions that need to sit or soak.
