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

Try that glass fixer - for eye glasses.

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!!

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
