I’ve got a glass top stove and I love it. Cleaning it thou can be a bit challenging. Check out these 5 hacks that will bring back that sparkle without scratching the surface. Before you start any of these methods make sure your stove is completely turned off and cooled down so you don’t burn any cleaning products into your glass.
- Scraping Method – Sometimes using cleaning products just isn’t enough. If you have really tough caked-on stains, you can carefully scrape it off with a razor. I do this all the time. First, add a liberal amount of liquid cleaner to the burnt-on stain. Then hold your razor’s edge flat against the glass while scraping the stain off. Make sure you’re really careful with this method. Make sure the blade is sharp (change often), so as not to scratch the glass.
- Towel Method – Wipe the surface of your stove-top down with some vinegar. Next, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the entire surface. Drop a towel in hot water, then ring it out so it is dampened. Lay the towel on top of your glass-top stove and leave it there for 15 minutes. This will loosen everything on your stove-top. Take it off and scrub away the gunk with an abrasive topped sponge.
3. Vinegar and Baking Soda – Sprinkle baking soda all over the top of your stove-top, then spray some vinegar all over it. Let it sit for about 15 minutes then wipe it down with a wet rag.
4. Ammonia and Alcohol Method – Mix a solution of one part ammonia and 10 parts water with three ounces of rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Spray some on your glass-top stove and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it down.
5. Dish Soap – Swirl some liquid dish soap on your glass-top stove, then sprinkle some baking soda over the entire surface. Splash on a little bit of hydrogen peroxide and mix your solution together with your finger. Use some elbow grease and a scrubber to clean your stove top. Wipe it down with a clean wet rag.
