HERE at Behind the Studio), I gave it a shot the other day while waiting for my zucchini bread to bake. I wiped off all the extra bits on top (cleaning stove tops are not my passion ~ sewing is~ so there was plenty to wipe away), then I sprinkled on the baking soda, and topped it with the dish towel that had been soaking in hot soapy water, I let it sit for 15 minutes and then wiped all the baking soda away. Well, it didn't look much better to me ( the original pinner said there wasn't any scrubbing involved but it looked like I sure had to push my sleeves up) so a few minutes later my stove was mostly clean. A little cooked on residue remained on the eye I use the most. Honestly, it worked okay but I could have done just as well with windex. It looks like the razor blade and special cleaner are a must for me, a mama who probably doesn't clean her stovetop often enough.
