- Cleaning cloths
- Baking soda
- Lemons or lemon juice concentrate
- Hot water
- Use simple, everyday ingredients to achieve a fresh, clean stove-top. Baking soda and the juice of one lemon will clean a glass top stove efficiently without scratching. Simply squeeze the juice of a lemon into a small bowl and add enough baking soda to form a paste. If you prefer, lemon juice concentrate is convenient and can be used instead of fresh lemons.
- Using a clean cloth and the lemon paste, lightly go over your glass top stove to remove traces of dirt, grease residue and spills. More elbow grease may be required on stubborn burnt-on stains or apply lemon juice directly to the stubborn area and leave on for several minutes before wiping.
- Remove all lemon/cleaning residues with hot water. Use a separate cleaning cloth dipped in hot water then wrung out to go over your glass top stove and remove any remaining cleaner. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.
Wiping off your glass top stove after each use with a hot, soapy dishcloth will prevent hard-to-clean spots and eliminate the need for excessive rubbing. Always go back wipe your glass top stove with a dry cloth immediately after washing to prevent streaking.
