Sprinkling baking soda over a filthy stovetop and covering it with kitchen towels dipped in hot water and dish soap removes stubborn stains without chemicals or scrubbing, an Australian mom has revealed.
In a cleaning group on Facebook, Allana Kirkwood said she spread a thick layer of the generic baking soda over her grubby stove and then placed two soggy dish towels over it.
After leaving the towels overnight, the Tasmanian mother found that deep-seated grime was easily wiped away with a single swipe of the cloth – no scrubbing required.

People were in awe of what she had accomplished with just the basic emergencies found in millions of homes across the country.
One said, “Great, I’m going to do this tonight.”
Another said, ‘Wow, great stuff and so simple!’
Mrs. Kirkwood said she avoids harsh cleaning products typically used in ovens ‘where possible’ to reduce her exposure to toxic fumes.
She recommended the ‘no scrub’ method for anyone suffering from arthritis, an inflammatory disease that causes pain and stiffness in the joints.
It’s the latest trick to save time and money on your cleaning regimen that’s been making the rounds on social media this month.

On Sunday, an Australian mom revealed that a $ 7.50 dishwashing spray is her secret to a sparkling clean door.
The woman posted anonymously to a household group on Facebook, telling members how she coated the dirt-riddled glass with Fairy ‘Lemon Easy Spray’ and scrubbed with a sponge for just under two minutes.
Photos prove that the dark grease can be easily removed, leaving the door shiny with just a few sprites of the product available at leading supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths.

The woman said she “can’t believe” she has finally found a product that removes stains quickly and easily, without the toxic fumes typically associated with effective oven cleaners.
The post quickly garnered hundreds of likes and comments from impressed Australians, many of whom thought the outcome was the best they’ve seen.
One said, ‘Wow, seeing is believing! I have to buy this. ‘

A second added: ‘I’ll get this ASAP. I cleaned my oven a few weeks ago, it was a nightmare. ‘
A third said the spray had done ‘exactly the same’ to her oven door and she never plans to clean it with anything else.
A fourth said she also sprays it on her shower door, leaving the glass brighter and cleaner than ever before.
