After we first bought a glass-top stove, I purchased a special cleaner for the surface. Even with the special cleaner, I had to scrub and scrub, and I still couldn’t get it clean enough. I purchased another brand of cleaner to see whether I would achieve better results, but it worked about the same.

Because baking soda effectively cleans other things, I decided to try it on the stovetop. I was amazed! I rubbed about a teaspoon of baking soda into the stains with a damp sponge, and it removed the stains with almost no effort.

For really hard baked on food, I use a glass scraper. You can buy them at a hardware or building supply store. Then I use baking soda to clean off what's left.

I use water and a green pad. The trick is to clean spills immediately and not let them set. I have been doing this for more than 30 years. My glass cooktop and stove look brand new.
