DIY Glass Stove Top Cleaner (3 Ingredients)
I love my glass top stove. What I don’t like is the fact that EVERYTHING leaves a stain!
Burns come out fairly easily if you get them quickly. But, what doesn’t come out easily are hard water stains left from water that somehow seeps out during cooking. I’ve had the same stubborn stains on my glass top for over a year!
It has been cleaned again and again with every chemical spray and magic eraser available. NOTHING has worked…until now! The best part is, I did it at home with NO cleaning chemicals at all!
Introducing the Best DIY Glass Stovetop Cleaner Ever!
I used this DIY glass stove top cleaner and, while it seems a bit strange at first (just wait until you see the ingredients), it’s the best stain remover ever! I was so surprised and excited about how well it worked.
Here’s a before and after shot:
How to Make the Glass Stove Top Cleaner
As you can see from the before and after shots above, this homemade stain remover really works! It’s pretty crazy to see how drastic a difference there is between what we started with and what the end result is.
Best of all, it’s super easy to make this cleaner because you don’t actually have to make anything at all! All you need are 4 simple supplies and you’re good to go:
I told you the ingredients were a bit weird! Stick with me though because they work like magic. Just wait and see…
How to Clean Your Glass Stove Top
Ready to put your homemade stove top cleaner into action? Soon you’ll be saying goodbye to those stubborn stains on your glass cooktop for good!
Step 1. Start with Your Spud:
The first thing you’re going to do is cut a slice off of your potato. Once you have a slice, rub it in small circles over the stains. Don’t be afraid to put some elbow grease into it!
Keep cutting slices off so that you’re not rubbing a dry potato over your stove top.
How this works: The idea here is that the potato acts as a sort of sponge, pulling out some of the stains from the flat stovetop and exposing the tougher stains underneath, which we’ll deal with next.
Step 2. Vinegar Time:
Once you’ve rubbed your sliced potato over your stains, grab your vinegar and pour it directly onto the surface of the stove. Let it sit for 5 minutes before you wipe it up.
When you’re wiping it up, do not add water to your wipe. Leave any vinegar residue leftover in place.
How this works: The acidic properties of the vinegar should help break down and dissolve those tough stains.
Step 3. Finish with Coca-Cola:
Last but not least, open a can of Coca-Cola and pour it over the area you’ve been working on and let it sit for 15 minutes.
I will say, it felt strange pouring sugary soda on something I wanted to clean! But it was so neat hearing it pop and fizzle just like Pop Rocks candy for the first few minutes after I poured the Coke can on there.
How this works: Similarly to vinegar, Coke has a lot of acidic properties, and various other chemicals as well. These all help eat away at those tough hard water stains and grime!
Step 4. Wipe it All Up
Once your 15 minutes are up, wipe up the soda! Any remaining stains should wipe away with it.
PS: I used a mini can of coke (7.5oz) and it was the perfect amount to cover my cooktop.
Enjoy Your Crystal Clean Glass Stove Top
That’s all there is to it! I couldn’t believe I’ve been living with a disgusting glass stove top for a year when this homemade glass stove top cleaner was so easy and effective! My stovetop hasn’t been this shiny in a while!
I even cleaned up a few other things in the kitchen while I was letting the liquids soak the cooktop. I’d call that a big win! I did have to promptly take out the trash though because it had a strong vinegar smell from the paper towels
If for some reason your top doesn’t come clean right away, simply repeat the process! Even with mine being as bad as it was, I only had to do this once!
I hope this post makes your life a little easier and your stove a little nicer to look at! Please remember to like, share, tweet, and Pin this post! Follow us on Pinterest as well for more ideas like this!
