Step-By-Step Instructions

How to Clean a Glass Stove Top with Burnt-On Food

Firstly, why is washing soda effective in removing burnt-on food and stove top rings?

  1. It has a pH of 11.5 and is quite alkaline, making it useful for breaking down grease and fats.
  2. The high alkalinity aids in the breakdown of carbon deposits.
  3. Because we are using powdered washing soda, it is working as a scourer.

These contribute to a potent combination of gentle mechanical scrubbing and cleaning science. Leaving your glass stove top clean.

Did You Know?
Washing soda is an important ingredient in many household cleaners. Among these are some stove top cleaners and laundry detergents.
Step One:
Spread the washing soda over your glass stove top.

Step Two:
Mix a small amount of dishwashing soap into a jug of water and pour it over the washing soda powder.

Step Three:
Scrub the burnt-on food and carbon deposits using a plastic scourer.

Step Four:
Remove the heavy grime from the glass with your microfiber towel. Rinse out the microfiber towel.

A Little Secret to Improve Your Microfiber Usage

Folding a microfiber towel in half three times, yields 16 cleaning sides. As a result, you have 16 chances to remove residue without leaving streaks on the glass.

  • After the first pass over the stove, flip the microfiber to the clean side and repeat the process.
  • Unfold it to the next clean side and continue wiping the stove.

Instead of crunching it, do this. Significantly it reduces cleaning time and contact time. This is because we used the entire cloth to clean the surface, not just the exposed area.

This improves cleaning efficiency and eliminates streaks.

What We Would Do Differently

Following this approach, we examined what we would do differently. With the goal of eliminating scrubbing.

  • Mix up the paste of washing soda, dishwashing liquid, and water.
  • Spread it all over the glass top with the plastic scourer.
  • Then cover it in cling film (saran wrap) to keep the water from evaporating. Because if it dries out, the alkalinity stops working.
  • Allow to soak for the night.
  • By the morning, all the burnt-on food should have been broken down, and we will only need a light scrub to clean your stove top.
