Glass-top stoves can be very beneficial with the not having to clean or replace drip pans or burner grates. The one drawback is that the spills and splatters are noticeable and cleaning the glass-top stove is essential. Today, we at AAA Cleanco Cleaning Company would like to relate some tips on cleaning the glass-top stove.
Basics of How to Clean Glass Stove Top Without Scratching it
1) Only clean the stove when the top is cool; never while it is hot.
2) Do not use excessive cleaners to avoid residues and avoid the abrasive or harsh chemicals to clean the glass stovetop or you can scratch the surface. Consult the manual to ensure specific cleaners are not required for cleaning to keep the warranty valid.
3) Stay clear of scouring pads and scrub brushed because they too can leave scratches behind; use microfiber spongers or cloths. If there are tough substances that require more extreme measures, a razorblade can be used in the appropriate manner.
Daily Cleaning of Glass Top Stove Without Leaving Streaks
Pour distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle and have a few microfiber cloths ready for cleaning.
1) Always wipe down the stove after each use to avoid the buildup of grease, dust, and debris.
2) Wait for the stove’s surface to cool and mist the entire surface with the vinegar, including the knobs and burners.
3) Use one microfiber cloth to wipe the moisture clean.
4) With a separate cloth, buff out any remaining streaks.
Deep Cleaning of Glass Top Stove
Depending how often you cook, a deeper clean is recommended ever 2-4 weeks. You will need some distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle, baking soda, kitchen sink filled with hot water, a clean towel, and a few microfiber cloths.

2) With the vinegar layer still intact, generously sprinkle the baking soda on top of the vinegar.
3) Submerge the towel in the hot water bath, pull it out and wring out the excess fluid and blanket the layers on the stove; allow it to sit for 15 minutes.

The likelihood of burnt on food that’s a challenge to remove is high. Using a razorblade may be your only saving grace. Get distilled white vinegar in a squirt bottle, a few microfiber cloths, and a razor blade loaded in a razor blade holder.

2) Make sure the surface is cool and spray the burnt residues with the vinegar.
