Ceramic hobs allow the homeowner to prepare food on a smooth, shining surface. The surface remains shiny with proper daily care and treatment of stains. Cleaning cloudy rings on a ceramic stove is not a difficult task if you use the correct cleaning tools. The cloudy rings result from pots or frying pans boiling over and leaving residue on the smooth ceramic surface. Using a hob cleaner recommended by the manufacturer is one way to clean these unsightly rings.

Things you need

  • Sponge
  • Bicarbonate of soda
  • Soft, lint-free cleaning cloths
  • Commercial ceramic hob cleaner

    Bicarbonate of soda

  1. 1

    Soak a clean sponge with warm water, then wring it out well.

  2. 2

    Sprinkle a generous amount of bicarbonate of soda onto the damp sponge. Bicarbonate of soda is a nonabrasive cleaner that will not scratch ceramic hobs.

  3. 3

    Rub the sponge and bicarbonate of soda in a circular motion over the cloudy rings until they disappear.

  4. 4

    Rinse the sponge under warm running water, then wring it out. Rinse the ceramic hob with the sponge until none of the cleaning solution remains.

  5. 5

    Wipe the ceramic hob dry with a soft, lint-free cleaning cloth.

    Commercial ceramic stove-top cleaner

  1. 1

    Squirt a 10p-size amount of the commercial cleaner on the cloudy rings.

  2. 2

    Rub the cleaner into the rings on the hob using a sponge, working in a circular motion.

  3. 3

    Apply more of the cleaner onto the cloudy rings if the stains are stubborn. Cover the area with a damp cleaning cloth. Allow the damp cloth and cleaner to remain on the cloudy rings for approximately 30 minutes. This allows it time to loosen the stubborn stains.

  4. 4

    Rub the area with the damp cloth, wiping off all cleaner residue.
