Do you have a glass stove top that looks like this & have burnt on food?
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t take long for my glass top stove to look like this – or worse! Sure, there are stove top cleaners out there, but they are expensive, and could be toxic. If you have a glass stove top in need of cleaning, you can most likely complete this project using things that you already have on hand!
Here’s what you’ll need to clean your glass cooktop stove:
- baking soda
- spray bottle
- scrubbing pad, like this one HERE or this one HERE
- paper towel
- 2 clean, dry rags
Then, follow these steps to clean your glass stove:
1. Start by wiping the surface off with a wet rag, cleaning it of all loose debris and everything you can get off.
2. Wait for surface to dry
3. Sprinkle dry surface with baking soda, especially where the caked on areas are
4. Cover the baking soda with vinegar using spray bottle, creating a toothpaste sort of consistency, it will bubble up, which is just what it is supposed to be doing
5. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes
6. Use scouring pad to work on cleaning up anything that is left behind. If it has really been baked on, you may need a bit of elbow grease
7. When everything has been scoured off, wipe up the paste that remains with paper towel
8. Use one clean, dry rag and get it went. Wipe up any of the paste that remains
9. Finally, use your second clean, dry rag to give the glass stove top a buff and polish, and voila!!!
You should now have a glass cooktop stove that is clean including the burnt on food!
Not only does this method work well for cleaning up tough, burnt on food, this also works well as a weekly maintenance cleaning method.
As in most cleaning tasks, staying on top of it and keeping things clean proactively is always easier than waiting way too long to clean something.
