I am not going to lie, my ceramic glass cooktop gets pretty nasty sometimes. I am a messy cook. Once my cooktop cools down I usually use my natural all-purpose cleaner to give it a quick wipe down but this does not get rid of any spills that are burnt onto the cooktop. At least once a month I like to give my cooktop a deep clean to get rid of the burnt on mess.
I have shifted away from single purpose cleaners and am now using mostly natural cleaners in my home. Although my ceramic glass stovetop cleaning method is not all natural I prefer it over using store bought cooktop cleaners full of chemicals. It requires minimal effort to get the results I desire.
What you will need:
How to Clean a Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Start by wiping the cooktop with a dry cloth to remove anything that is not baked on. Next, add some Dawn dish liquid to the cooktop.
Sprinkle a layer of baking soda over the dish liquid.
Then pour some hydrogen peroxide on top.
Use a scrubbing brush to mix the dish liquid, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together. Be sure to cover the entire surface of the cooktop. Now let the mixture sit for at least 10-15 minutes. The messier my cooktop is, the longer I let it sit.
I like to use the scrubbing brush again to scrub down the surface of the cooktop. For areas that have a burnt on film, I like to use a cooktop cleaning pad. After I am done scrubbing (this step normally only takes me a minute or two) I use a microfibre cloth to remove the mixture. I rinse my cloth between wipe downs to get the excess dish liquid off the cloth. Once the surface is clean I use a dry microfibre cloth to dry the surface and prevent smudges on the clean cooktop.
It is that simple. That is how I clean my ceramic glass stovetop using minimal effort to achieve the results I desire. If you use this cleaning method I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Don’t forget to PIN this post and tell your friends!
