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!!
