What Is the Easiest Way to Clean a Glass Top Stove?

The easiest way to clean a glass top stove is to clean it after each use with a spray bottle of vinegar and baking soda. This will help prevent major build-up, as well as reduce the need for deep cleaning.

To clean a glass stove top, allow it to cool after you’re done cooking. Then, simply mix equal parts vinegar and water in a clean spray bottle and spritz the cooktop clean. If there are spills or stains, a sprinkle of baking soda atop the vinegar solution will help loosen and remove any grime. Then, buff the entire surface clean with a soft, dry cloth.

How Do You Clean a Black Glass Stove Top?

To clean Whirlpool glass cooktops made of black glass, you can use white vinegar to remove minor streaks and hard water stains. Spray the cooktop generously with white vinegar, let it sit for a few minutes, and then clean the surface with a dry, clean cloth.

Are you wondering, “How do you get burn marks off a black stove top?”. This common question has a simple answer: Add baking soda to the equation. To remove minor burn marks or food spills, begin by spraying the stained cooktop with vinegar. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda onto the cooktop, concentrating on the burn marks. The baking soda will mix with the vinegar, helping to loosen any debris and cut through grease. Using a soft, dry cloth, scrub the baking soda and vinegar paste onto the cooktop in a circular motion. With a bit of elbow grease, the burn marks will wipe free.

What Is the Best Cleaner for a Glass Cooktop?

We recommend the Affresh® Cooktop Cleaning Kit for cleaning Whirlpool glass cooktops. This kit contains specialized scrubbing pads, a scraper tool, and a special cleaner formulated specifically for use on glass cooktops.

To Clean Whirlpool Glass Cooktops:

  1. First, wipe the cooktop surface with a clean cloth and warm, soapy water.
  2. Apply Affresh® Cleaner directly to the cooktop in an even layer.
  3. Scrub gently with the included scrubbing pad, concentrating on burned-on stains.
  4. For stubborn food stains and spills, gently use the included cooktop scraper.
  5. Rinse off the cleaner with clean water, and dry the surface with a clean cloth.
  6. Finally, buff the surface with another clean, dry cloth.

How Do You Clean a Burnt Glass Stovetop?

If you need to clean a burnt glass stovetop, it’s important to use the right tools. If the cooktop cleaner you purchased comes with a scraper tool, then use that to remove burned-on food debris from the surface. Otherwise, you can carefully use a razor blade to remove these stubborn stains gently.
