  • When washing such boards, do not use abrasive products, as they scratch the surface of the board.
  • When choosing a cleaning agent, you need to pay attention that it has the inscription «For glass ceramics». And if there is no time to look for such a remedy, you can use dishwashing detergent or soda.
  • If you need to deal with light stains in the form of coffee, oil splashes or compote, you can use soda and a scraper.
  • Against complex stains in the form of “escaped” milk, special chemicals for glass ceramics are selected. In this case, trying to use something else is a waste of time and effort.
  • If sugar stains form on the stove, then they must be dissolved in water before cleaning. Water in this situation copes with even the thickest layer of caramel.

If the soot is particularly resistant, then you can clean it with a special scraper for glass-ceramic stoves:

  1. The stove must be disconnected from the power supply.
  2. Check if it has completely cooled down.

It is best to leave soda diluted in water on the stove for 10-20 minutes, and then remove it with a damp sponge.

  2. Start rubbing the surface of the plate.

These sponges literally erase all the dirt from the glass ceramics like an eraser.

In the case of a glass-ceramic hob, it should be remembered that it will be much easier to clean it if this is done immediately after the stove has completely cooled down in order to avoid burns. The fresher the stain, the easier it is to deal with.
