How to clean a glass top stove the natural way
What you will need:
- White distilled vinegar
- Baking Soda
- Razor blade or special scraper
(1) Wipe down
First, check if the stove has totally cooled down. Then spray the surface with distilled white vinegar. Next, wipe off with a clean dampened cloth.
(2) Sprinkle with baking soda
After wiping off the surface, sprinkle liberally with baking soda. Baking soda is also a known natural cleaner because of its alkali content. Alkali breaks down grime, grease, and grit. Additionally, because baking soda is a very mild abrasive, it cleans without scratching the glass.
(3) Towel Treatment
Wet an old but clean towel with hot water. Better yet, fill a basin or pail with hot water and then wet thoroughly. Now wring the towel damp. Finally, leave the towel on top of the glass topped stove for 15 to 20 minutes. The hot damp heat will loosen and soak the crud and grit on the stove top.
(4) Scrub, Rinse, and Repeat
Next, work vigorously in scrubbing off the crud and grime. Then sprinkle liberally with baking soda as you scrub the surface. After that, frequently wash in hot water, rinse, and wring and repeat the process until you have cleaned as much as you could.
Using a razor scraper or a special scraper meant for cleaning a glass top stove, scrape off the stubborn and burnt food and crud. Next, scrape off gently and in one area at a time. Moreover, you would not scratch the glass if you scrape off with even motions. We also recommend that you use a razor blade with a graspable handle.
(6) Final Wipe Off
Lastly, give a last and final wipe by spraying distilled white vinegar and then wiping off with a dampened cloth. Then finally buff with a lint-free dry cloth.
