I love my kitchen. I really do. Since we had it remodeled, I actually delight in cleaning it up after every meal, it brings me joy.
Because of this, there are few things I hate more than getting my kitchen all shiny and clean and then realizing my new glass cooktop (seen above when it was brand, spanking new) has a baked-in smudge on it. You know the kind… won’t come off no matter what you do? The kind that just sits there, giving you stink eye whenever you enter the kitchen?
Even though I clean my cooktop immediately after using it, I had this one stain that just would not come off. This m-f was here to stay. Or so it thought.
Over time, I googled around and tried every combination of products and methods I read about to get that smudge off. Nothing worked.
Until I came up with this one:
1) Using a paper towel or sponge wet with hot water, apply a small amount of Bar Keeper’s Best Friend (I loooooooooove this stuff and use it all over my kitchen and baths.) mixed with a small dollop of apple cider vinegar to the stain. Really rub that mixture in, using your muscles. You want friction.
2) Let that pasty mixture sit for an hour. Go read a blog. Might I suggest THIS blog? Read this post. It’s a good one, if I do say so myself. And it’ll make you feel better about Anxiety Cleaning.
3) Come back and use another damp paper towel or sponge to wipe off the paste. You should find a beautiful, stain-free surface underneath.
Anyone have other methods for cleaning the glass cooktop that you’ve found successful. We’d love to hear them!
