Is your greasy stovetop getting you down? According to one TikToker, there’s a revolutionary way to clean your stovetop and it’s effective, cheap, and chemical free.

Look no further than your pantry for a lemon and some baking soda for a simple, game changing solution to clean your stovetop.

TikToker Yagmur shared her stovetop cleaning hack online saying, “Show me the life hack that you randomly saw one day that is now an unconscious standard practice in your life.”

“I’ll go first.”

In the video, Yagmur provides a demonstration of her newly discovered cleaning practice. First, she pours a spoonful of baking soda over a sliced lemon. Turning it over, she uses the lemon as a sponge to scrub her electric stovetop.

After going over the stove once, she adds more baking soda and lemon juice onto the stove and cleans until the top is grease-free.

After wiping the excess with a paper towel, she reveals a spotless stovetop you’d want to eat off.

Yagmur’s advice received mixed reviews amongst her followers with some saying she had saved their lives and others saying the hack was not practical with the price of lemons so high.

“Girl, you saved me,” one said.

“Ooh gonna try it too. Thank you.”

“Hell no, with prices on lemon.”

Others said they’d stick to their current cleaning routines.

“I use oven cleaner,” stated one person.

While others wanted to know if the cleaning hack could be used on other surfaces.

“What about on stainless steel is this fine?”

Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is incredibly versatile and has many other uses in the home. Some of the ingenious ways you can transform your home using this household staple include:

Laundry Revitaliser

Infuse life back into your fabrics and enhance the vibrancy of your laundry by incorporating half a cup of bicarb soda into your washing cycle. Not only will this restore the colours of your clothes, but it will also render them irresistibly soft.

Drain Refresher

Troublesome clogs and unpleasant odours emanating from drains can be effortlessly remedied. Just introduce a cup of bicarb soda into any drain and allow it to sit for an hour. Follow this by boiling two cups of vinegar, and pouring it down the drain. Run hot water, and voila! Your drain will be free from unpleasant odours.

Oven Enchantment

Ensure that no harmful chemicals find their way into your culinary creations by cleaning your oven with bicarb soda. Sprinkle a light coat inside, then spray vinegar until it fizzes. Leave the solution for at least four hours and wipe with a damp cloth.

Surface Cleaner

Achieving an effective clean for bathroom tubs, tiles, and sinks is as simple as sprinkling bicarb soda lightly on a clean, damp sponge and scrubbing as usual. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. To add a bit more abrasiveness if needed, include coarse salt in the mixture.

Deep-Cleaning Cleanser

This versatile cleanser works wonders on any bathroom surface, cutting through soap scum and mildew at a fraction of the cost of commercial products. Combine 1/5 cups of bicarb soda, 1/2 cup liquid soap, 1/2 cup water, and 2 tbsp white vinegar in a spray bottle. Apply to surfaces and witness the magic unfold.

Carpet Rejuvenator

Eliminate carpet stains before the arrival of the family by mixing bicarb soda and liquid soap. Dilute with water and add vinegar. Shake well and apply to the stained area, scrubbing with a nylon-backed sponge. Rinse off with water. For larger or darker stains, add 2 tablespoons of borax to the mixture.

Clothing Stain Elixir

Craft a paste by combining bicarb soda and water, then apply it to clothing stains. Let it soak in for a while before washing as usual. This simple concoction proves to be an effective and economical solution for stubborn stains on your garments.
