Frustrated because your glass stove top has residue and burnt on marks, even though you wipe it down every time you use it?   Most stains on glass cook tops are caused by burnt on food or mineral deposits from hard water.

You only need 3 things to get that white film and burnt food off your black glass top stove – dawn, baking soda and a citric acid solution!

The first step  is to squirt some Dawn dishwashing liquid on the ceramic glass top stove, paying particular attention to the most prominent stains.

Step 1

Sprinkle baking soda all over the Dawn that you previously applied.

Step 2

Mix  2 tablespoons of citric acid powder mixed into a spray bottle with hot water and spray it all over the surface. You can use vinegar if you don't have any citric acid on hand.

Step 3

Use your fingers to spread the mixture all over the  glass top stove and let it sit for 20-30 minutes (depending on how heavy the stains are) to soften the stains.

Step 4

With a microfiber cloth or sponge, rub the mixture into your stove top using a circular motion. Continue rubbing the mixture in, concentrating on the stubborn spots, until most of the stains have been wiped clean.

Step 5

Wipe off all the mixture from your glass stove top. Make sure you have a sink or bucket full of warm water to rinse the soapy mixture from your cloth. Keep wiping and rinsing until there are no suds or traces of baking soda left.

Step 6

Once you have wiped the ceramic glass stove top clean, use some newspapers or a dry microfiber cloth to shine it up. Both are lint-free and will leave your glass top stove shiny and streak free.

Step 7

If you regularly use this method to clean your  glass top stove, you shouldn’t have many issues with scratches as the baking soda will get into the fine cracks and fill them.
