A glass stove is an elegant, modern appliance to add your kitchen. However, like regular stovetops, they still require a thorough cleaning every now and then. It is important to note that these stovetops need to be cleaned in a particular way in order to keep the glass scratch-free. To have your unit sparkling and keep your stovetop safe, here are some tips to follow.
Easy Ways to Clean A Glasstop Stove
Use the Right Products
While you may be tempted to use scouring pads and deep-cleaning products from the store, these are actually filled with harsh chemicals that can harm your stovetop and even your health. In most cases, you can get your glass stovetop clean using a microfiber cloth, baking soda, distilled white vinegar, and hot water. In more severe cases, you can scrape burnt-on gunk away with a razor.
Clean It When It’s Cool
You may think it’ll be easier to get stubborn caked-on food off your glasstop if it’s still warm, however, that’s not a safe option. Always wait for your stovetop to cool completely before cleaning it so you avoid any potential injuries.
Clean in the Right Order
When you go to clean your stove, begin by spraying the stovetop with vinegar and sprinkling baking soda over it. Then place a hot, damp towel over that for about 15 minutes. Remove the towel and use a microfiber cloth to remove the vinegar and baking soda. You can also buff out any streaks with a little extra vinegar.
