Keep Your Stove Top Shiny With A Household Essential You Already Have

Vaseline is an incredibly popular product and can even be used to clean hard water marks. In fact, it is so popular that the market is set to be worth over $500 million, according to Market Watch. However, aside from its impressive beauty capabilities, it can also be incredibly handy around specific areas of your house, particularly for cleaning your stove. Although it may seem strange, it can do an outstanding job of keeping it looking brand new. You may even be surprised by its capabilities. In addition, this hack is perfect if you've run out of any of your usual cleaning products at home and can make a tremendous makeshift alternative to keep your stove looking top-notch.

However, can you use it independently, or do you need any other cleaning products? As it turns out, using this product on your stove doesn't have to be complicated and is quite flexible in terms of how you can use it. Let's take a look at how you can use this household essential to your advantage. 

Use Vaseline and a microfiber cloth

For this hack, as shown by @athomewithdidi on the social media platform TikTok, you can either use the Vaseline on its own or in combination with other products you usually use. It will likely depend on the state of your stove. The whole point is to use it to add shine rather than eliminate germs. So, how do you apply it? When you're ready, take a cleaning cloth and work a dash of the product onto it. Next, spread it around your stove, getting into all the nooks and crannies to target any marks. You don't need to go overboard with too much product. In addition, ensure your stove is dry before going in with your Vaseline; otherwise, you may not get the best results. This is because it's water-resistant. Now, you should be left with a stove that looks sparkling and brand new!

This hack works so well because the oils in the product form a film over your stove, which is why it looks sparkling clean. However, is it safe to use? After all, you'll likely be working with high temperatures. Thankfully, the Vaseline website states that it is non-flammable, despite some conflicting discourse online. However, there is a risk if temperatures exceed 400 degrees Fahrenheit, so keep that in mind if you're going to be using and cleaning your kitchen stove. To be on the safe side, you should double-check the temperature if you can.
