How to Clean a Glass Cooktop

In my last home I cooked on a gas range for the last six years. When we moved into our new home last year, I inherited a glass cooktop that I had never used before. Quickly, it became grimy and lost it's shine. I tried cleaning it with my Method all purpose cleaner which made it shinny and took off most the grease and grime, but it didn't get all the stains off around the burners, so I tried another method using baking soda I would like to share.

What you will need:

  • Baking soda
  • Warm water
  • A clean rag
  • Dish soap
First, soak your rag in warm water with dish soap.

Add a good amount of baking soda to the top of your stove

Place your wet rag over the baking soda and let it sit for 15 minutes (You want to rag damp, not soaked)

Last, scrub down the top gently with the rag, making sure you get all the making soda off the top. You might need to use a second rag to remove all the baking soda.

Your cooktop should be super clean, but I found that it left a film on my top and it took forever to get the baking soda off. I had to clean it multiple times, which was time I didn't need to spend. In the end, the stove top didn't look any cleaner than if I had used my Method cleaner. 

Try it for yourself and let me know if it worked better for you or if you have a better way of cleaning your cooktop, please, I'm dying to know what it is. Send your emails to Shendersonphoto(at) so I can try out your way of cleaning your stove top.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
