Ah, the ceramic stovetop. Heats up quickly. Attractive. Shiny surface. Easy to cle… No. Wait. NOT easy to clean! It’s too easily scratched! It needs constant cleaning! It’s too much maintenance!!!
Cleaning your ceramic stove top can be a delicate matter. Enter your stovetops’ true love: The Norwex Spirisponge (say that five times fast). This lover is gentle. Caring. And has just the right touch!
Norwex Spirisponge Review
While the Spirisponge is known for its gentle touch, it is also slightly abrasive. But its tough love doesn’t feel tough, because it won’t scratch your stovetop!
Now, the Spirisponge does need a little sidekick. I find that it cannot work alone when cleaning a stovetop. Did you know that all hero’s do not work alone? They all need sidekicks to help them accomplish their goals! Harry Potter would never have defeated He Who Should Not Be Named without Ron and Hermione. Katniss and Peta would never have won the Hunger Games without each other. Anne would have been so lonely without Diana!
Enter: The Norwex Cleaning Paste. This paste acts just like your Cerama Bryte liquid stove cleaner. Only in powder form. And with no weird chemicals that warrant using gloves and locking it away! AND, you can use it for other things. Like, a billion things, actually (see some examples here). ***Please note that I love that you get your money’s worth out of this product!!!***
How To Use It
- Scrape a little of the cleaning paste onto your stovetop.
- Wet your Spirisponge. Squeeze it well.
- Then scrub. Sometimes, you need to add a little more paste (not much).
- Then you use a cloth (rag, papertowel, EnviroCloth, your choice) to wipe it away. I always use a damp EnviroCloth, then follow up with my Window Cloth to make it shine.
This whole process is quite quick, even for very burned on bits. I’m convinced that before I used these two products, it took three times as long to get my stovetop clean (which meant I put off cleaning it longer).
Here are before and after photos of a particularly bad stove after using the Norwex spirisponge and cleaning paste.
This stove has been well used in a busy household, so you can see what kind of a job this power couple can do on a toughie!
What’s even better is that the Spirisponge can be used for any sticky mess, not just for ones on the stove:
- Counter tops,
- walls – anything (and can work alone in many of these circumstances)!
- AND… the Norwex Spirisponge WILL NOT scratch or wreck non-stick pots and pans, making it ideal for hand washing dishes.
Once again, getting your money’s worth out of a Norwex product. And this baby is durable too. You’ll get quite a number of uses out of one (they are sold in packs of 2).
Here is another example of what this dynamic duo can conquer – the plastic white sink (only someone who never cooked in a kitchen created this foolish item!)
This sink has had a beating. As you can see – it’s been melted by hot items, and it’s whiteness makes it difficult to keep clean. Not anymore!
Since I use my Spirisponge for so many different jobs, and it is so effective yet gentle, I give it a 5 star rating.
And you and your Spirisponge can live happily ever after!
