You love the way your glass stovetop fits perfectly into your countertop, and it probably works like a dream, too.
But your dream stovetop can quickly become dirty, as it accumulates grease and grime spilled while cooking.
Here, we show you how to clean a glass stovetop with minimal fuss and using simple ingredients that are readily found in any kitchen.
Steps to Clean a Glass Stovetop
Things you’ll need:
- Baking soda
- Liquid dish soap
- Microfiber cloth
- Nylon pot scraper
- Rubber gloves
- Hot water
Step 1. Wipe the stovetop with a wet sponge
- Use a wet sponge to remove as much of the loose food particles and liquid as to clean a glass stovetop.
Step 2. Prepare the soapy cleaning solution
- You can prepare the hot soapy water in the sink, a bucket or a bowl.
- Fill it with hot water and add about 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap to it. Be sure to wear rubber gloves so that you can make the water pretty hot and thoroughly mix in the liquid dish soap.
- Soak the dishcloth in the hot soapy cleaning solution.
Step 3. Sprinkle baking soda and spray vinegar on the stovetop
- Sprinkle baking soda over the entire stovetop.
- Fill a spray bottle with vinegar.
- Spray the vinegar on top of the baking soda. This will help loosen up any hardened grease.
- Take the dishcloth out of the hot soapy cleaning solution and wring it just a little so that it does not drip but still remains wet.
- Place it on the stovetop and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 4. Use a scraper on any stubborn stains & dry and buff the stovetop
- After 20 minutes, remove the dishcloth from the stovetop. You will notice the loosened debris floating in the cleaning mixture.
- You can use the same dishcloth to wipe the stovetop clean, or a sponge to loosen up any remaining grease for a thorough cleaning.
- If there is anything still stuck on it, try using a stovetop scraper or a nylon pot scraper to loosen it up.
- Once everything has been removed and cleaned, use the microfiber cloth and buff the stovetop to a dry shine.
- While this article shows you how to clean a glass stovetop, it is equally important to keep your granite countertops clean and stain-free.
- You can also use baking soda and vinegar to clean your charcoal grill.
- If you have persistent stains that refuse to come off, you can squeeze lemon juice over them and then scrub the area to break down the grease or fat. In fact, you can also use lemon juice to clean your chopping board and knife.
