    A razor blade works well and will not scratch.

    Thank you so much for answering me Nancy Bentley, but after I posted this question I remembered that I had a razor blade that I had forgotten about. It worked like a charm and thanks again.

    Hi Christine, I use a simple cleaner on my oven door. Just mix baking soda with a little wate to make a paste. Spread the paste onto the glass, leaving the door open. Let the mix set for 15-20 minutes then add moe water and rub in small cicles, then use a clean damp cloth to remove the mixture, keep rinsing and cleaning the cloth until all of it is removed from the glass. Your glass should be sparkling; if not, add a dab of Dawn dishwashing soap and scrub and rinse again. This process works or me every time.

      Thank you so much Janice for your helpful suggestion. My friend and I did use a home m=ade wglass cleaner, but as he was helping me put the door back together he got fingerprints all over the galss and of course there was no time to clean the glass again. Now instead of grease I have fingerprints. Which is worse? I do appreciate you taking the time to answer me though.

    Hello I often use one of those retractable razors. They are often found in the paint section.

    Additionally if you have one the kit that comes with the glass cooktop’s has all the supplies you should need including the razor and glass polishing cream.

    Hi Christine: Make a paste of Cream of Tartar and white vinegar. cover the area with this and let it sit for about 30 seconds. Then, use a sponge and clear off a spot to see if it's clean. If not, let it sit a bit longer and then try again with the rough side of a sponge. You may have to do this a couple of times, but it should work for you. It works for me and it works great for gunk on pots and pans. Good luck
