How to Clean a Glass Top Stove Without Damaging It

Share this expert tip!

With its sleek appearance and ease of use, a glass top stove can bring joy to your cooking…until it’s time to clean up the mess. Wondering how to clean a glass top stove without damaging it? Remove as much debris as possible before cleaning with hot water, dish detergent, and baking soda. Learn how to clean a glass range top quickly and easily with these simple steps.

How to Clean a Glass Top Stove in 7 Easy Steps

Food scraps, spills, and grease are hard enough to remove when cleaning a gas range, let alone an electric stove’s delicate glass top. We’ll detail how to clean a glass top stove with the right methods and supplies to avoid nicks and scratches.

#1. Remove Heavy Debris With a Paper Towel

For cooktops with heavy spills or multiple food particles, it’s best to remove as much as possible before wetting the cooktop. When the stove has cooled, use a paper towel to wipe away as much debris as you can. A plastic kitchen scraper can be beneficial for significant staining. Sprinkle the cooktop with warm water and hold the scraper at a 90° angle while gently scraping. Never use a razor blade to scrape away debris, as it can scratch the cooktop.

#2. Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin to clean a glass stovetop it’s best to have all your supplies on hand.  Gather the following materials so they’re easily accessible:
  • Dish sponge
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Clean rags or dish towels
  • Rubber gloves
  • Bowl of hot water
  • Dish soap
  • Baking soda

#3. Soak Rags and Apply Baking Soda

Add several drops of dish soap to the bowl of hot water and swirl to create suds. To protect your hands, wear rubber gloves while submerging the rags or dish towels in the bowl of hot water. While the rags are soaking, sprinkle the glass stove top liberally with baking soda.

#4. Layer Rags on Glass Range Top

Once the baking soda is applied, gently wring the rags, leaving them wet but not dripping. Layer them directly on top of the baking soda and allow to sit for 15 minutes. If your glass stovetop is heavily soiled, leave the rags on for 30 minutes or more.

#6. Use a Sponge to Remove Excess Moisture and Debris

Use the soft side of the dish sponge to clean a glass cooktop of any lingering dampness, food particles, or spills. Wipe up and down or side to side until the cooktop is clean, rinsing and wringing the sponge, as needed, so it remains clean.

#7. Polish the Stovetop

The last step in how to clean a glass top stove restores its shine. Wipe the cooktop with the microfiber cloth to remove any last traces of water or residue and return its glow. Failure to clean a glass top stove with the right methods can leave it vulnerable to nicks and scratches.
