2.Apply white vinegar on the surface and wipe it with a damp soft cloth.
3.Boil some water, add washing liquid and put the cloth in it.
4.Sprinkle some baking soda over the cook-top
5.Squeeze the cloth from the water and put it over the sprinkled cook-top and leave it for a while. If the soda starts to dry on the surface,        then soak the cloth in the hot water again.
6.Remove the cloth, clean it and wipe the cooktop with zig-zag movements.
7.Then wet the sponge with cool water (use the soft side of the sponge) and remove the left grime and soda from the surface.
8.Absorb the moisture with a soft cloth and if there are any stains left, use a glass cleaner to remove them.
