A Glass Top Stove can instantly add a sleek and elegant feel to a kitchen. It won’t be of any use though if the glass gas top isn’t in its best condition. While you don’t need to worry about burner grates, splatters on the stove can stick out in a way that can be quite uncomfortable to look at. In some ways, they can be harder to clean than any other type of stove. Well, you can always learn some tricks on how to keep your glass top stove clean without accidentally inducing scratch marks on it.
1 . Start With The Basics!
You need to keep some things in mind before you start with your cleaning. The first of them being involves your own safety. Don’t try cleaning the gas top when it’s still hot. Also, avoid using harsh chemical cleaners. The residue can accidentally burn while you are cooking and the only thing that will do is give you breathing problems. Abrasive cleaners can also cause damage to your gas top. Avoid scrub brushes and such rough cleaning materials. They are likely to leave a scratch. Sponges are a better idea in this regard.
2. Do It Daily!
If you at least wipe your glass stove at least once after you’re done cooking for the day, you can save yourself a lot of work for later. Of course, like it has been said before, wait for the stove to cool first. Then, spray a little water, or preferably vinegar and scrub it away with a sponge. Another sweep of a dry cloth and we are done for the day.
3. Weekly Schedules!
If you are someone who can’t afford to spend time on the gas stove daily and would prefer for cleaning at a more routine interval, say a weekly or monthly clean up, then you would need stronger material than vinegar and sponge. First, spray vinegar on the surface, and then pour baking soda over it. Take out a washcloth and dip it in lukewarm water, and do not forget to wring it to let the excess liquid fall away.
Simply put the washcloth over the mixture and keep it there for 10 to 15 minutes. Now throw away the towel and clean the glass stove with a sponge. Apply vinegar over it again and then use a washcloth to dry it. Do this over and over again until your stove is clean and shining again.
4. Clean With A Razor Blade!
Before you try on this method, make sure to check whether the manual for your glass stove advices against it. If so, there is no reason for you to not listen to them. If they have no problem with it, here is what you need to do.
Like the previous methods, spray vinegar where the residue is visible. Now that it has been softened, scrap it away with a razor. Keep the blade at a 45 degree angle from the stove, so that only the tip is in contact with the stove.
