How To: Clean Your Glass Stove Top

I don’t know about you, but every single day my poor glass stove top looks like a tornado of food bits, fire, and dust has passed over it.

This happens daily…even if we don’t use our stove top!

While this continues to boggle my mind, there are plenty of easy solutions to get it clean with little effort!

The kitchen is one of the most overused loved rooms in our homes.  It is a magnetic gathering place for family and friends and the last thing I want is to see a glistening, clean kitchen and then have my eye fixate on the stove top covered in who knows what!

I typically use Weiman Stove Top Wipes at the end of the day to give it a wipe down, but once you’ve cooked a big meal using every burner, the wipes begin to fall short.

I have tried countless scrubs, pastes, sponges, scraping with a putty knife…. nothing works as well as some old fashioned home made cleaning supplies!

Basic Scrub:

Don’t look at it! It’s hideous!

After trying out various ingredients, I decided that if some combo of baking soda, Blue Dawn and hydrogen peroxide doesn’t do the job it’s time to call in the Haz-Mat team. It works like a champ getting baked on messes off pots and pans and it’s what I use on my own cook top.

  8. I’m always telling the people in my house that cook to make sure, first, that the pot fits the burner. Having said that, I love this idea and I can’t wait to try it. That will probably be tonight, after someone puts a too small pot on a large burner. *sigh*

  9. I wish I could attach the before and after pics! Like pure MAGIC your post appeared in my feed this evening about 90 minutes after a plastic microwave cover melted onto my glass stovetop! FILLED the house with smoke and had both our dog and me gasping for breath out on the front lawn. I was sure we would have to buy a new stove, even though this one is only 18 months old. Saw your post, thought I’d give it a shot. THE STOVETOP LOOKS ALMOST LIKE NEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank goodness I went to the gym yesterday snd today, because that “elbow grease” was definitely needed to assist. But the stovetop SPARKLING!!!!!! Yay, YOU for putting this out there in the universe for me to stumble upon at jyst the right time!!!!!! I’ve pinned this post, and I’m going to clean the top like this whenever needed.

    Merry Christmas, and THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
