I hate when this happens!!
I recently tried some experimenting with different combinations of household products to see what would REALLY work to clean my glass stove top COMPLETELY!! I researched online and tried some methods that claimed to remove all those annoying cooking rings you get when your water over boils or when you spill something and after you clean it there is still spots on your stove. I was tired of looking at these cooking rings and spots so I took matters into my own hands and found a cure! A cleaning cure that costs less than $1. I have a microwave above my stove that made it hard to get pictures without a reflection, so try to ignore the rectangle reflections.... sorry.
All you need is Baking Soda and Peroxide! I found peroxide for 84 cents! I didn't know you could buy anything for that price anymore....unbelievable price. Anyways, sprinkle as much baking soda to cover the area. Then pour on a small amount of peroxide over the baking soda or dampen a rag or paper towel with peroxide. Then take your rag and begin cleaning using a circular motion. This will begin to look like a paste and this is what you want. If it's too dry, add more peroxide. Don't worry about messing up the process because you really can't.
When you think you have the spot up, clean up and wipe up the left over paste mixture the best you can. Then, I take a dry rag and whip of any streaks and white residue that the baking soda tends to leave behind. When you dry with the rag, it's almost like you are buffing the stove top and it makes it look nice and shinny!!!
The results are amazing. One more thing I'm going to add is that one of my burners, the top right one, had that cooked on ring for over a month and this is the only method that worked. I LOVE looking at my stove now!
On a side note....
I also took this cleaning method to some of my stainless steel water faucets that had hard water stains and it got rid of most all the hard water spots. This has been the only thing that removed some of these hard water spots that were on there for who knows how long. I rent a house and it's kind of old, so it's hard to make anything look clean. I like my faucets a lot more now. I didn't take pictures though because I just quickly tried it out not planning on it working.
Also, remember to test out a small spot on your appliances or faucets before doing all of it just in case. I'm not going to be responsible for your mess ups!!! LOL! Just had to say it. For those of you worried or wondering about using peroxide, I say don't worry (but I'm not a doctor or scientist). In the stores, there is only 3% peroxide in the bottle and the rest water. Also, people use peroxide to clean vegetables after they buy them from the grocery store and this is fine too. I was surprised to read how safe and great peroxide is to use. I was worried about using it so I put my nose up to the open bottle of peroxide and really could barely smell anything. I have used tons of cleaning products that give me headaches and make it hard to breath when I'm using them, so I'm all for using peroxide. Peroxide is even a proven safe vegetable wash. I did my own research on peroxide and feel completely comfortable using it as a cleaner. Heck, if I used bleach and other harsh products, what do I have to lose using peroxide. Just so you know, I am not a scientist or doctor, so do your own research.
