How to Clean a Glass Stovetop

From Cooking Light

With their lack of grates and coils, glass-topped stoves may seem easier to clean than their more complicated counterparts, but they can still become a huge mess. If you don’t clean it immediately after cooking, the mess never seems to go away, no matter how hard you scrub.

Luckily, you can clean your glass-topped stove with some patience and two common pantry items, plus a microfiber towel and a plastic scraper.

Once your stove top has cooled down, spray or pour white vinegar over the cooktop, concentrating on the crusty areas. Next, sprinkle a layer of baking soda over the vinegar. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then scrub the stovetop with a microfiber cloth. Use the clumps of baking soda to scrub any particularly crusty areas. For extra stubborn residue, you might need to use a plastic scraper. Dispose of the clumps of baking soda and add more vinegar as needed to pick up remaining crust and eliminate streaks.

If your glass-topped stove has been neglected, you may need a stronger cleaning solution.
