A professional cleaner has shared the trade secrets to ensure every kitchen stovetop sparkles like they're brand new.

'I've cleaned every type of stove top that is out there,' said Kacie Stevens, owner of Melbourne-based cleaning company The Big Clean Co.

'Stainless steel, enamel, ceramic, glass, gas, electric - they all look different but they’re all cleaned with basically the same process,' the professional cleaner revealed in a video.

'Next, I vacuum up excess food so that it doesn't get caught on my cloth because it might scratch the stove,' she said.

She added, 'It’s SO RARE that we come into contact with a stove top that hasn’t already been scratched.'

The next step in the process is using a degreaser all over the surface.

Kacie highly recommends the For All Australia degreaser ($23.95) for this step.

'I really love that I can lather it up,' she said about the product.

A Brisbane doctor is urging health authorities to vaccinate people most at risk of monkeypox before travelling overseas, so they're less likely to bring it back. But with global demand surging, Queensland has secured only 300 doses, and access is strictly limited.

If the stove is still not clean enough, Kacie uses soapy water and the Gumption Paste Multi Purpose Cleanser ($5.40) on stubborn stains.

'The only difference is that I will use a non-scratch scouring pad on glass stoves,' Kacie said.

She added, 'But a microfiber cloth is perfect for all other stove tops.'

Kacie then simply uses a dry cloth to finally wipe over the surface.

'There's no need to use another chemical to polish the stove after,' she said.

'Don't forget them - they're important!'

'I feel so stupid for not knowing all the parts come off, including the knobs,' said another.

She added, 'I'm on my way to clean my stove again.'

Several also begged Kacie to come to their houses, claiming their stove tops needed a deep clean.

'Please come to my house, I could never do this myself,' said one woman.
