I’ve never personally had a glass stovetop, but we do have one in our studio. After months of making recipes and homemade products for blog posts, the stovetop definitely needed some attention. Simple spills on a glass stovetop can quickly turn into tough, baked-on messes, so I started scouring the web for the best way to clean them up.
I discovered this method, which involves a few of my favorite cleaning products and good old fashioned steam. We gave it a try on our glass stovetop, and we were amazed! It turned out looking as clean and shiny as the day it was installed. Here’s how the method works, so you can do it on your glass stovetop at home!
How To Clean A Glass Stovetop
Pour white vinegar into a small spray bottle. Spray the vinegar evenly onto your stovetop.
Then sprinkle baking soda evenly across your stovetop. The baking soda will react with the vinegar, creating a fizzy cleaner that will loosen up grease and grime.
Next, put a few drops of Dawn into a bucket or your sink, and fill it with hot water.
Dunk your towel into the soapy water, then wring it out lightly so that it’s wet but not dripping.
Spread the wet towel over the stovetop, covering the baking soda and vinegar. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. The steam from the hot towel will help to “steam clean” your stovetop and rehydrate any baked-on gunk, and the dish soap will help cut through greasy messes.
After 15 minutes, remove the towel.
Depending on how dirty the stovetop was when you started, you might want to give it a good scrub to help loosen any stains or grime. A stiff-bristled scrub brush works perfectly for this.
Wipe away the remaining baking soda. To finish off, give your stovetop another spray with the vinegar, and use a microfiber cloth to buff it to a sparkling shine. Nice!
