There are some devices that get dirty pretty quickly, and glass stove top is one of these. In the past, it was difficult to clean under the coils (electric coil stove), but there is another issue with the current models: the glass cooktop always looks dirty and scratched, even when we clean it.
Sometimes even commercial products do not work.
Here are 6 DIY to get those tough caked-on burnt food chunks and stains off of your glass-top stove.
Before you start any of these methods make sure your stove is completely turned off and cooled down so you don’t burn any cleaning products into your glass.
Method # 1: the towel
- Wipe the surface with vinegar.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the entire surface.
