How do you remove scorched stains from Porcelan stove?

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Any Master Chefs here?  My wife wants a new kitchen stove, and I don't want to pay for one! - Seems like there are lots of small match-head sized brown spots on the white porcelain around the burners and on the gray grates.  Got any secrets for removing them without scratching the finish?  They seem really too hard to get off with scotchbrite - Maybe a chemical?  Ammonia don't work.  Thanks,  EDMO

Might be relevant to brown plane stains too, unless they are on the seat!  ;<)   We had  about a 12" square stain on a precision 20 foot square surface plate in the machine shop once - It looked like it might have been glue - tried some  chemicals on it and nothing happened - Finally, I accidently spilled some Coke on it and it came right off!  Ha!   EDMO

Got it - 2 parts Baking soda, 1 part water, rub with rag - Works!  Now I showed her how, she can finish the other 99%!  Rub-a-dub-dub!  Ha!  EDMO

The best non-scratch cleaner/polisher we've found for our glass cooktop is a product called Cerama-bryte, I would think that would work dandy on porcelain too. Might also try a thick slurry of wood stove ash and water, makes a fine potassium hydroxide lye cleanser.

I was going to try some of my FITZ polish if the baking soda didn't work.   EDMO
