Glass cooktops are not only beautiful, but can are often purchased because all the elements are hidden, making cleaning a breeze – right?!
Even glass cooktop owners will affirm that sometimes appliances just get dirty – and cleaning can be difficult. Appliance Rescue Service often performs cooktop repairs, and we have a few tips on how to keep those glass cooktops looking brand new for years to come:
Always Allow the Cooktop to Cool Before Cleaning
Before cleaning, let the cooktop cool completely, for obvious reasons.
Use Gentle Products
Use a mild non-scratch scubbing sponge or microfiber cloth for cleaning, along with non-abrasive cleaners. Anything abrasive will scratch the glass and create irreversible damage.
Check the Owner’s Manual
Your owner’s manual will offer important maintenance tips on what works best for your particular model, so take those suggestions into account. Plus – you may learn if there are any cleaning products or methods that could void a warranty.
Don’t wait until the gunk and build-up has overtaken your cooktop! Instead, keep a squirt bottle full of half vinegar/half water and lightly spray in on the cooktop after it cools. Then, wipe off right away to prevent any build-up that can lead to cooktop repairs in Dallas.
Razor Blades Work on Tough Stains
If you have hard, burnt on foods, then a razor blade can work well to remove it. As long as your owner’s manual doesn’t advise against using a razor blade, very gently use the full edge of the blade – as flat as possible – and scrub at the dried residue. It should clean right off. Never use the very edge of the blade, as it will scratch.
Hopefully, these tips will extend the life of your glass cooktop and prevent the need for any Dallas glass cooktop repair.
