The sleek design of a glass top stove appeals to many. It seems as if it would be easier to clean without all the parts found on a traditional stove top. However, if you aren't consistent about cleaning your glass stove top, you may find that it doesn't simply wipe clean.
These seven tips will help you restore your glass top stove to brand new condition. With regular cleaning, you'll find you can even say goodbye to scrubbing forever!
1. Use commercial products to clean glass top stove (h/t Bill Newberry)
Commercial products formulated for glass top stoves are the easiest to grab and use. A soft scrub product, a non-abrasive scouring pad, and a glass top stove razor scraper will help you clean your stove top with ease. Simply squirt a generous amount of soft scrub cleaner on the glass and scrub with the scouring pad. Burnt areas, such as around the burner rings, can be easily scraped clean with a razor scraper. Wipe clean to reveal a spotless surface.
2. Create your own soft scrub cleaner (h/t Happy Mama Tales)
You don't need to purchase a commercial cleaner for just your glass cooktop. This DIY glass stove top cleaner requires only three ingredients -- dish soap, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide. Simply squirt the dish soap directly onto the surface of your stove top. Sprinkle generously with baking soda and then pour a bit of hydrogen peroxide on top. Grab a sponge and gently scrub. Wipe clean.
3. Grab a scrub brush (h/t My Thirty Spot)
A stiff scrub brush gives you that extra bit of scrubbing power to get through the toughest burned on grime. The handle gives you leverage without putting excess pressure on your hands and wrists. You can use a scrub brush with commercial or homemade glass cooktop cleaners.
4. Heat things up a bit (h/t Behind the Studio)
For general cleaning, this simple technique couldn't be easier. Sprinkle baking soda over the surface of your glass top stove. Take a hot, soapy dishtowel and lay it on top of the baking soda. Wait 15 minutes, then use the dishtowel to gently scrub the surface. Rinse and wipe clean.
5. Put a Magic Eraser to work (h/t Happy Money Saver)
If you have burnt on food, but don't have a razor scraper handy, just grab your Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. All you need to do is dampen it and gently rub on the hard-to-remove residue. You won't need to scrub, gentle rubbing should do the trick!
6. Clean up small spills with ease (h/t The Krazy Coupon Lady)
No need to clean your entire stove top with baking soda, when you only need to clean a small area. An old toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste will easily lift any small spills. If you don't have a toothpaste with grit, you can dip the toothbrush in baking soda.
7. Sprinkle on lemon juice (h/t 2 Bees in a Pod)
The acid in a lemon juice provides the perfect cleaning power to lift grime from the surface of your glass stove top. Generously sprinkle baking powder over the glass surface, then squeeze lemon juice on top. Allow to fizz and work for 10 minutes before gently scrubbing with a sponge. Wipe clean to reveal a shining glass surface.
