Removing Metal Marks
- 1). Allow the cooktop to cool completely before cleaning. Wipe the cooktop down with a clean damp cloth or paper towel to remove any food spills, dirt or dust. For any burned-on crust or residue, use a plastic, non-abrasive scrubber to remove the residue. Do not use steel wool or abrasive pads because they will scratch the cooktop surface.
- 2). Choose a cooktop cleaner. There are several excellent commercially available cleaners made specifically for glass/ceramic cooktops.
- 3). Apply the cooktop cleaner to the affected area and rub gently with a paper towel until the metal mark is removed.
- 4). Clean off any excess cleaner with a damp cloth or paper towel.
- 5). For stubborn marks not removed by the cooktop cleaner, use a diluted bleach solution. The solution should be 1 part bleach to 4 parts water. Soak paper towels in the bleach solution, lay the paper towels over the affected area, and let stand for 30to 45 minutes.
- 6). Rinse the bleach off thoroughly, and gently rub the stain with a damp cloth or paper towel or with the cooktop cleaner to finish removing the metal mark.
