Stove top scratched....any way to fix?

9 posts in this topic

My wife was cleaning the stove this weekend and used a scotch pad to try to remove some grease and other junk that was on there. Well, she scrubbed enough that it scratched the black stove top of our fairly new stove, along with the back side of it near the controls.

Is this something that I may be able to buff out like a car with turtle wax or something? She scrubbed one area really good and you can tell.

There is still some stuff we can't get off the stove top...does anyone know of a really good cleaner for stove tops?

Use any commercial glass stovetop cleaner with a WHITE nylon pad,nothing any more abrasive. For the burned on spots use a single edge razor blade..

I did the same thing. I was using bar keepers friend and a wash cloth and it removed a large area of those little bumps so now I have big black marks on it.

Nothing I can do to fix it either

Scotch Brite Cook Top Cleaner is what I use. It has a little handle that is easy on the hands and replacement cleaner pads. I have used a couple other ones as well, but this one works well. Not sure if it will take out your scratches though.

Try some white automotive rubbing compound. They make a white and a orange. The white is the finer grade. If the surface is painted

it will polish it out with a bit of rubbing.

This is what I am hoping for. I have also read about trying a certain type of polish for jewelry. I have to look into exactly what it was called and see which is finer.

I would try the rubbing compound first. It's only a couple bucks a can. If that isn't fine enough then you can go after it with jeweler's rouge but that usually requires a buffer. If you aren't experienced with a buffer you could do more damage. I would stick to polishing it by hand.

Thanks for the suggestions....I'll let ya know how it turns out!!

    • She cant stand Needs a chair to sit on Clint happens to have a nice one.  You might be too old to get this then but don't blame your lack of comprehension on anything but yourself. Maybe your heart meds need tweaking or alzheimers is kicking in?
    • most reports in this area very poor way to much water  
    • Lone wolf but they are expensive. Muddy brand is not bad!
    • I bought the work shop and like it, It dose take a little practice from not pushing down to hard on the knife wihci allows it to drop below the guide, pluse the arching of the tips of knives can be challenging. I know theres an tension adjuster but it only adjust so much, go use kid gloves it seems. but i do like it
    • I'm up on it.  But bring on the translator.  I don't speak stoner.
    • Try to keep up with the conversation. If you need a translator let me know and I can try to round one up.
    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.
    • I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.   Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.
    • Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.
    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for. Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?
