How do you clean your glass top stove?

With money being tight, I don't want to spend on special cleaners for my stove. I clean the top with a degreaser and Comet, but it still needs help. I just cant get rid of the rings around the burners. Do you ladies have any (cheap) secrets that keep your glass stove top looking like new? Please share......

  • YIKes..SOS on a glass top. If you are talking about a radiant top range son't ever use something abrasive. You will cause micro scratches that compromise the safety of your range. My brothers first wife used SOS on hers and 3 months later it exploded. The company proved the top had been 'scarred by unauthorized cleaners" I only use Ceramabrite" on mine. One bottle is like 5 bucks but it lasts way over a year

  • Greased lightning. Let it sit for a few minutes or longer it will get that right up. Use windex after to shine it up.

  • I acyually use dishwasher det. Like the powder kind. It makes for a good scrub and I usually spray some pine sol or windex with it. Good Luck they are a pain!

  • have you tried using magic eraser? i don't use the brand name, but the generic. if you are close to a dollartree, they usually have them. clean off what you can with just a soapy cloth. then the magic eraser to get the rest. i have had very good luck with this, especially when my boys decide to cook, because they are the messiest. if i were you, i wouldn't use comet or any other abrasive cleaner, because over time it will scratch and dull your cooktop.
