Cleaning a Glass Top Stove With Store Bought Cleaner
If you don’t have time to make your own cleaner, there are plenty of store-bought cleaning products that can be used to clean a glass-top stove. You can use store-bought cleaners such as Fantastic, CLR or Glass Top Cleaner to clean your glass top stove. Look for ones specifically designed for glass-top stoves, as these are the most effective at removing dirt and grime. We’d recommend wearing gloves, as some of these can be pretty harsh. We’d also recommend leaning towards natural cleaners as well.
Once you’ve applied the cleaner of your choice, let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth or sponge. Be sure to wipe with the grain of the stove to prevent scratching the surface.
