Things You'll Need

  • Single-edged razor blade

  • Ceramic stove top cleaner

  • 2 dry towels

  • Ceramic stove top polish

Ceramic stove tops are easy enough to clean, but after repeated cleanings, they can become dull. The shine on your ceramic stove top makes all the difference between a clean, fresh looking kitchen and a dirty looking one. Once a ceramic stove top has become dull from build-up or tiny surface scratches, you can actually bring back some of the shine to keep it looking nice.


Step 1

Use a razor blade to scrape off any cooked-on food or any other substance stuck to the surface of the stove top. Scrape in one direction only, being careful not to drag the blade sideways and scratch your stove top.

Step 2

Wipe the debris from the surface with a dry towel, and squeeze some ceramic stove top cleaner onto the cook top.

Step 3

Rub in the cleaning solution lightly with a dry towel and allow it to dry.

Step 4

Use the towel again to buff the dried solution off of the cook top. It should be clean and shiny, except for your troublesome dull spots.


Step 5

Rub a ceramic stove top polish over the spots that have become dull.

Step 6

Rub the polish in with another dry towel, the same way you did with the cleaning solution. Allow it to dry.

Step 7

Buff the polish off with the towel that you used for applying the polish.
