Ok, now that we have all of the supplies ready, let’s tackle that dirty stove top!
How To Clean A Glass Top Stove
Begin by making sure that your stovetop is cool. This is very important!
Lightly wipe the stovetop to remove crumbs and other light debris.
Next, sprinkle a generous layer of baking soda across the top.
Then add a drizzle of dish soap and a drizzle of peroxide.
I don’t measure these ingredients. I just dump them on and mix all together.
I will say though, you don’t want the mixture to be too dry because it won’t be easy to scrub. But you don’t want it too wet because it will just run all over and make a mess.
After you add all ingredients, use the scrub brush and mix well. Let this thin paste sit for about 15 minutes so it can work it’s magic!
After the 15 minutes or so, use your scrub brush and gently scrub any stubborn stains or areas that need a little extra attention.
Once you are satisfied with the stain removal, use a dish cloth or dry towel to wipe away the scrub mixture. You may have to use more than one or rinse and wipe a few times.
After that I usually use a damp cloth and give the stovetop a finally wipe.
That’s all there is to making an easy, non-toxic glass stove top cleaner!
Tips For Cleaning Your Glass Top Stove
Glass top stoves are great, but they do take a little extra care.
Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind so that you can keep your stove clean and free from stubborn stains.
Clean Only When Cool
Never clean your glass stove top while it’s hot!
Always wait until the stove is completely cooled before cleaning (even if you use natural cleaners!). Some cleaning materials can damage the finish of the glass, leaving pits or boils.
No Glass Cleaner
It seems like glass cleaner would be a decent option for sprucing up your glass top stove, right? But it isn’t. Some of the chemicals in glass cleaner can damage the stovetop.
Vinegar can be used (which is what a lot of people use to clean their windows), but if you are thinking of using a commercial window cleaner that has ammonia or other chemicals, don’t do it!
Just stick to a safe, non-toxic glass stove top cleaner like this one 😉
Sometimes it’s necessary to use a little elbow grease and really scrub those stains, but be careful! Too much pressure can actually cause your glass stove top to crack.
Just Say No To Chemical Cleaning Products
There are a number of commercially available cleaners for glass stove tops, and they might even work fairly well.
But one of the problems is that these cleaners have ingredients that have the potential to cause developmental, endocrine, and reproductive issues. Not to mention, many have been found to lend to aquatic toxicity.
That is not something I want in my home, on my skin, or around my kids!
Thankfully, if you’re striving to create a non-toxic home, there are great alternatives!
