How to wash the glass-ceramic plate?

In modern apartments, glass-ceramic electric cookers are most often encountered, which need more careful handling compared to gas types. However, not all housewives know exactly how to clean an electric stove with a glass surface without damaging it. Let's figure it out.

First of all, you should know that you need to start a separate sponge for washing such material. If you wash it with the same washcloth that you use for dishwashing, there will be ugly stains on glass and ceramics due to the remnants of organic matter. In no case can you clean the glass with a metal sponge, as it can scratch brittle material, as a result of which it will quickly lose its quality.

For universal cleaning without any old stains, the same one will do. soap solution. The laundry soap in this case is rubbed on a fine grater and mixed with about the same amount of water. The composition is applied to the soft side of the washcloth and left for about half an hour - an hour.

After 45 minutes, carbon deposits and stains can be removed with a sponge, and then clean the kitchen assistant in the usual way.

How else to wash the ceramic slab from soot? If the oil and vinegar did not cope with the task, use soda solution. Do not be afraid to scratch the fragile material, as the powder acts softly enough, but effectively.

It needs only to be mixed with warm water in equal proportions and apply contaminated areas in a bountiful layer. After about half an hour, when the soda is dry, it should be poured with lemon juice. When a violent chemical reaction occurs, the pollution can be removed with the help of the same washing sponge, and then wiped dry with a cloth.

Clean induction panel

As in the case of glass ceramic hob, the touch panel also needs careful care. So, it is imperative to remove all contaminants from the induction panel before cooking - otherwise it will be harder to clean them later.

Immediately you need to remove sugar and any of its derivatives that fell on the panel. Cleaning should be done strictly after the panel has completely cooled down and in no case should metal scouring pads and scrubbers be used for this - only soft sponges and cloths, as well as a special silicone scraper will do.

In the process of basic daily cleaning, the hostess most often uses the same above soap composition. Sometimes it is made using special tools for induction panels. They are plentifully wetted with a small piece of cloth and applied to the site of contamination on 5 – 15 minutes, and then the areas are washed with a soft sponge.

Nagar is removed with a special formulation. ammonia: 20% of this substance is mixed with 80% of water, poured into a spray bottle and sprayed onto the panel, and then wiped with a soft cloth. If some of the pollution can not be scrubbed, it is worth helping yourself with a special scraper.

To remove more persistent stains on the panel put soda composition (soda is mixed with water in equal proportions), and after a minute of 10, a small amount of table vinegar is poured on top. After the reaction, the soda contamination is removed with a soft sponge.

If you use powder-type products for cleaning, make sure that they are well dissolved in water. Otherwise, the presence of solid particles can lead to scratching the panel and microcracks on it.

In general, glass-ceramic and induction surfaces are most similar in terms of their care. The main rule is that pollution, regardless of type and material, should be removed as soon as possible, and ideally, basic cleaning of any stove should be done daily.
