How to Clean Your Glass Top Stove in 7 Easy Steps

Written by 

Glass top stoves, commonly found on electric stoves, pose a bit of a challenge when it comes to cleaning cooked-on grease and food. Although the surface is smooth and easy to wipe down, the glass top can easily be scratched if you use the wrong material to clean off food. But with a few ingredients found in your home—or something bought on Amazon—and a little patience, you’ll find that cleaning your glass top stove without harming the surface couldn’t be easier.

Cleaning Your Glass Top Stove

Glass top stoves can be tricky because you want to clean them without scratching them. When pasta or potatoes boil over, or when you spill something, the mess sticks. How do you get it off without using an abrasive material that might scratch the glass?

This house cleaning trick will get your stove looking like new again without the worry of scratching the glass!

  • Remove as much as you can with a cloth: The first thing to do is to get all of the little pieces off the stove: crumbs, bits of the mess that break loose, or anything else that might have haphazardly ended up on the stovetop.
  • Cover the entire stovetop with cleaning solution: If you’re using a DIY method that involves baking soda, sprinkle it on and then add the additional cleaner. If you’re using a commercial product, simply spray the glass stovetop.
  • Cover the stovetop in wet, soapy towels: Use hot water and dish soap, and ring them out just enough to keep them from dripping. You still want them wet, though; because keeping the baking soda from drying (and getting crusty!) is important. 
  • Walk away—sort of: Leave the towels to sit for 30 minutes, but check back intermittently to make sure the towels are still damp. If they start to dry, sprinkle or spray warm water onto them. 
  • Remove the towels & wipe down: Take the towels off of the stove top and wipe down the entire stove top with a damp cloth or sponge.
  • Use razor blade to remove excess grease: If any grease or burnt food still remains on your stove, carefully use a razor blade to scrape off the grime while it’s still damp.
  • Dry & polish: Use the microfiber cloth to wipe down the damp stovetop and give your glass a final polish.

With just a little effort, your glass top stove will look as good as new!
