Homemade Glass Stove Top Surface Cleaner

If you’re wondering how to get those stubborn spots on your stove top clean without investing in expensive cleaners, fret not.  I’ve got a homemade frugal solution that costs just pennies which includes just two simple ingredients you’re almost sure to have at home already.

The only two things to get your glass flat-surface stove top clean are:
1.  Baking soda
2.  Liquid dish soap

Start with about 1 tsp. of baking soda and add enough dish soap to form a paste (also about 1 tsp.).  Using a sponge with a mildly abrasive side but one that won’t scratch, work in circles focusing on tough areas of the stove top.

When you’re done, wipe with a microfiber cloth to polish the glass surface.  For stubborn, cooked-on spots, you can scrape them off with a flat razor blade or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

    thanks!! this is a great idea!!! my stove-top has a few tough spots and i really didnt feel like investing $10 in easy off products to try to clean it off.:) this will do perfectly as i am also a huge fan of baking soda used as a cleaning agent!!

    I’ve used baking soda with just a little water to make a paste for 2 yrs on my stove top. Works wonderful! Eliminate the liquid dish soap for even a more frugal stove top cleaner!!!!

    Or you can just use baking soda toothpaste. It works so well and since I stock uo on toothpaste when they are a deal at CVS, it’s practically free.

    A good free “scratcher” for glass cook tops are the plastic mesh bags that fruit and vegetables come in! Works great. (I learned this from the cable TV show “Extreme Cheapskates!”)

    My glass stove top is not dirty but some of my pots have left a stain that I just can’t get off and I am going insane looking at it. I cleaned every pot and pan in the house. I have tried baking soda and vinegar no luck…. Please let me know what I can do….

    Thank you
