How to Remove Aluminum Foil Melted on Glass Stove Top

Glass-top stoves provide all of the traditional benefits of other stove tops without the inconvenience of messy maintenance of removable burners or other elements. Keeping your glass stove clean is sometimes a challenge, however. When presented with the task of removing melted aluminum foil from your glass cook top, you should always use a cleaner designed for glass stoves and clean the melted foil as soon as possible. The longer you leave the melted foil on the glass burner, the more difficult removal will become.

Step 1

Turn off the burner and allow the stove to thoroughly cool.

Step 2

Cover the melted aluminum foil with a cream glass stove top cleaner.

Step 3

Using the cook top razor scraper, hold the scraper against the surface and scrape the foil with a back and forth movement, pressing to remove the debris. Continue to apply glass stove top cleaner as you scrape so that you are not scraping a dry glass cooking surface.

Step 4

Scrub any remaining aluminum foil particles with a magic eraser or an abrasive sponge. Wet a clean sponge in the sink and wipe the glass stove top, rinsing the cream cleaner residue and any remaining foil debris with the clean sponge.

Step 5

Dry the glass stove top with paper towels.
