Cleaning expert and influencer Lynsey Crombie, also known as The Queen of Clean, spoke to Express.co.uk about how she cleans her hob. The tip works for both induction and gas hobs.
How to clean a hob
Lynsey, who has amassed an impressive 287k followers on her Instagram alone thanks to her handy advice on tackling household chores, told Express.co.uk: “The key is to approach this in stages – a bit like doing a double cleanse in your skincare routine.”
She explained: “First of all remove surface dirt and debris using a damp microfibre cloth and then finish using the Astonish Hob Cleaner with a good buff dry to ensure no streaks…your hob will be sparkling!”
Astonish’s Zesty Lemon Antibacterial Hob Cleaner removes burned-on and dried-on food.
It is recommended for use on ceramic, glass induction, and halogen hobs as well as microwaves.

Tips to clean a hob
There are various different types of hobs, and how you clean will depend on this.
How to clean an induction or ceramic hob
Make sure the hob has cooled and disconnect from power, to ensure you don’t burn yourself. Use warm water and washing up liquid and wipe the hob down with this using a sponge or microfibre cloth. Wipe it clean with a dry cloth.
How to clean a gas hob
Remove all caps and pan supports. Then use warm water and washing up liquid and wipe the hob down with a cloth or sponge.
Wipe it dry with a clean cloth and return the caps and pan supports.

Lynsey also discussed a big cleaning no-no that catches many British homemakers out.
She warned against using too much cleaning product and urged Britons to use products properly.
“Something I come across regularly is the use of far too much product and often failing to read the instructions on bottles which means you won’t get the most out of products,” she said.
She also revealed her cheapest cleaning hacks. “My fail-safes are to use used tea bags to clean up dirty pots and pans,” she said.
The cleaning expert also recommended a very popular cleaning staple for drains.
Lynsey said: “Use bicarbonate of soda to clean up blocked and smelly drains and use washing up liquid to clean up almost anything.”
Another cleaning expert recently detailed an essential daily “habit” for a sparkling oven to get rid of grease.
Lynsey explained: “Get into the habit of wiping over your oven after every use, this takes seconds and all you need is a warm soapy cloth to remove the food spillages and any grease and grime.”
