You love your glass stovetop but you
are afraid to use too much elbow grease to get it clean. We know that
it can seem fragile – and it is. But there are tips that can help
you effectively clean your glass stovetop more easily than you think.
Start by Getting Rid of Large Food Particles
First and foremost, wait until your
cooktop has cooled down and then use a soft cloth to wipe off the
large food particles and liquids that come off easily. While you do
need to wait for it to no longer be hot, you want to get to it as
soon as possible after that to prevent food and liquids from
Get the Right Cleaning Supplies and Soak Your
Once you have gotten rid of larger
pieces of food and liquids, take some time to gather the cleaning
supplies you need. We recommend a microfiber cloth, dish sponge,
baking soda, rubber gloves, a bowl of hot water with dish soap mixed
in, and dry cloths. Then put the clean cloths into the hot water with
dish soap and let them soak. While they are asking, you can grab your
baking soda and sprinkle the top of the glass stovetop.
Layer the Cloths on the Stovetop and Let Them Sit
Once the cloths have had a chance to
soak, take them out and wring about half of the liquid out. Then
unfold each one of them and place it right on top of the stovetop.
Let the hot water, cloths, and baking soda work their magic for 15
minutes. If you have a very messy stovetop then you may want to let
it sit for half an hour.
Remove the Rags and Wipe Away the Residue
After you have
waited the appropriate amount of time, remove the rags from your
stovetop. Then wipe away the baking soda and particles. The
easiest way to do this is to start at the top of your stovetop and
move down. Then grab your sponge and wipe away any remaining debris.
Use another dry towel to get rid of moisture.
Is it Time to Replace Your Stovetop?
It may be that your stovetop is not
just dirty – it’s old. Even if you keep it as clean as you can
and clean it deeply every week, eventually it will begin to show
signs of wear and tear. This can be a sign that it is time to replace
the entire unit. If that is the case, or to find out if there are
