When burn stains appear on glass stove tops, they leave behind unsightly discolorations. Burn marks need to be removed carefully because glass stove tops scratch easily. Harsh abrasives can cause permanent damage to stove tops. Removing burn stains immediately will prevent them from ruining the appearance of your stove top, and it will also help extend the life of your stove top.
Things You'll Need
- Dull butter knife
- Distilled vinegar
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- Lemon juice
- Commercial ceramic cleaner
Allow the stove top to cool completely before you attempt to remove the stain.
Remove a thick burned area with a dull butter knife. Scrape carefully so that you do not scratch the surface. Scrape until the area remains smooth. If you have difficulty scraping the burn stain off, moisten it with distilled vinegar and allow it to sit for 20 minutes.
Add 2 tsp. of baking soda to a bowl. Slowly add water and stir until a thick paste forms.
Rub the baking soda paste over the burn area. Allow it to sit on the stain for 10 to 15 minutes.
Scrub the burn stain with a sponge. Apply the baking soda paste again if it does not remove the stain. Add two to three drops of lemon juice over the paste to help dissolve the stain.
Wipe the baking soda off with a damp washcloth. If you continue to have difficulty removing the stain, purchase a commercial stain remover designed for ceramic or glass stove tops. Follow the instructions on the cleaner to ensure that you apply it properly.
