How to Clean a Glass Cooktop and Get a Streak Free Shine

43K Views
No drip pans, that is the most wonderful about glass cooktops. However, if you spill and burn things routinely like I do, you'll find yourself wiping down your stove after you use it. While wiping down after every use is great, a good scrubbing is needed every so often but you can use the simple trick I use everyday to get a streak free shine.
You will need:
Hot soapy water
Terry cleaning cloth
Baking soda
Microfiber cloth
Glass cleaner

      Instead of the bottle of toxin laden spray being sprayed on your food surface, you could use vinegar, but most of the time it is only necessary to have a good microfiber cloth - *note - all baking soda residue must be removed before polishing, or you will end up with a milky film instead of shine.
