How Do You Keep Stains off a Glass Top Stove?

The most important thing to do is clean your stovetop after every use. To do this, spray the surface with a mixture of vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Wipe down with a clean microfiber cloth to remove any residue that may have accumulated during cooking.

During your daily cleaning, if fresh spills have burned onto your cooktop, yet do not come off with vinegar alone; you’ll want to grab a bit of baking soda.

To clean a Maytag glass cooktop using baking soda:

  1. Begin by spraying the entire cooktop surface with the vinegar solution and allow it to sit.
  2. Then, sprinkle baking soda over the burnt-on stains.
  3. The vinegar and baking soda will mingle and help lift grease and stains off. Allow it to sit another moment until bubbling slows.
  4. Then, using a soft cloth or durable paper towel, wipe the baking-soda-covered stains in a circular motion to lift all of the debris and baking soda off.
  5. Using a clean, soft microfiber cloth, finish cleaning with another spritz of vinegar to the cooktop. Wipe the cooktop until clean and dry.

How Do You Clean a Burnt Glass Stove Top?

An additional step will be needed to clean a Maytag glass cooktop that has stubborn, burned-on stains.

  • A razor or cooktop scraping tool

To Get a Clean Glass Top Range:

  1. Begin by soaking a clean cloth in warm, soapy water.
  2. Place the cloth over the burned-on stains for 30 minutes. This will help loosen and soften any food stains that have been baked onto the cooktop.
  3. Using your razor or cooktop scraper, gently scrape away any remaining debris. Be careful to work slowly and not poke or jab at the stain, which can scratch the cooktop.
  4. Once the majority of the burnt-on stain has been scraped away, carefully lift the removed food debris off of the cooktop surface and discard.
  5. Spray the clean surface with vinegar, then sprinkle baking soda over the area where the stain once was. Allow it to sit for a few minutes.
  6. Then, using a clean cloth, scrub the baking-soda-covered stains in a circular motion to remove any remaining debris. Rinse clean with water and dry to a clean shine.
