    Hi Mary,

    If they recommend baking soda, then that should be what you use. Anything else, might affect the stone in a negative way. Try making a paste with baking soda and water, put it on the stone and let it sit and do it's work. You might be cleaning it off too soon. I hope that helps. Wishing you the best.

    Some color may stay on the stone. The reason they don't want soap is that it may soak into the stone and you wouldn't want that.

    I don't really know the answer but if it was me I would try sprinkling it with salt and then rubbing it with a lemon cut in half so you are rubbing the lemon and the salt together.

    I use a damp green scrub pad when things build up.

    I don't know how the manufacturer would feel about this but I once inadvertantly left the stone in my oven during the cleaning cycle and next am when stone was cool rinsed it off to assess for damage and to my suprise the stone looked like new. Now every time I clean my oven with the high heat cleaning cycle I leave the stone in the oven to clean it with the oven. I would not reccomend putting water on a hot stone though it could shatter like glass does.

    Scrape off any chunks or residue.

    Make a very thick paste with baking soda and water-half and half, spread this where the stone is stained, I use my fingers and dab into place. Then scrub with a toothbrush in a circular motion. Wipe off with a towel. Now you have a thin layer of baking soda on your stone. Wipe with a damp rag if you are done cleaning.Repeat cleaning if needed.

    Only use that wich is reccommended by manufacturer. You could contact them and ask technical department what you should do!

    Add baking soda to water," says Malarkey. "This combination turns into a paste and will help get hard stuck on foods released from the pizza stone." Let the baking soda and water mixture sit briefly, then scrub away the paste with a brush, wipe away, and let air dry before giving it a final wipe with a cloth.
