    Default Tips for Cleaning Glass Stovetops

    I was making one of those awful pasta side dish packages last night, and the pot of milk boiled over. I've scrubbed the stove with soapy water, used a plastic scrubby thing, and tried the bottle of stovetop polishing stuff that came with the stove.

    I still have a brown ring of burnt milk on the element. What else can I do to try to get it cleaned?

    I think they sell some kind of scraper for them...I need to get one too. You can try scraping it with your fingernail too.

    You can try soaking it in a paste of baking soda.

    I love my Scotch Brite stovetop cleaner. It's a gimmicky pad thingy but it does work, better than any other scrubbie or the special glasstop cleaner I've used. It got old black rings off my stove when nothing else would.

    I use the tip of a sharp knife and scrape the brown spots off. You just lightly scrape, I have been doing this for several years and haven't scratched my stove yet.

    They have special cleaner for glass stove tops. It also comes with a special scrubbie thing. You can get it at Lowes or Home Depot. I usually use Fantastic and a Scotch Brite pad, along with some elbow grease and then just wipe it real good. I use the special cleaner about every 2-3 weeks, just to make sure it's all clean.

    I use the Scotch Brite scrubbie thing also. But it dosen't get it all off as you said..Still leaves that tell tale ring. Hubby uses a scraper on it but still leaves some.

    I wouldn't have another glass top. Least with the old electric you could buy new pans if it got really horrible. Plus raise the top to clean under it. I'd rather do that than do the wet/pour/scrubby/wipe/ repeat/ then still have to scrape...never again. Regretted it starting about a month after we bought it.

    But I just used a regular Scotch Brite, nothing fancy and it didn't scratch it. The cleaner was the Ceramic Brite or whatever that came with it and is at Lowe's and Home Depot. Does as well as possible I guess.

    I have a hard time finding the refills for the scotchbright pads. I do love them when I use them.

    where do you find the scotch brite pads?

    when I first saw them advertised I looked in my local stores but didn't see them. I wonder if they more available now.

    I use cameo cleaner. It's like comet but less abrasive. You add a little water and use a scrubber. I have bought the specialized cleaners and its the same thing.

    I use one of the hand held razor blades (the razor blade slides into a little pastic thing); that is what my electrician recommended when I both the stove; and has worked for years....

    no scratches because the razor blade sits flat....
