She combined half a cup of baking soda with one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon of water to create the miracle cleaning scrub.
The mum then mixed the scrub together then applied it to her stovetop with a hand towel and made sure to evenly distribute it around the surface area.
Chantel left the scrub to sit on the stainless steel surface for 30 minutes and then sprayed cleaning vinegar directly on top.
