Aluminum Stains On Glass Cooktop

Posted by nerdyshopper (My Page) on

We have used a Whirlpool Glass-top cooktop for several years. it is light bisque colored and now seems to have gotten permanent stains on one burner. My wife and I have tried using the white cooktop abrasive, a Mr. Clean magic eraser and a razor blade scraper to no avail. The grey stains won't come off. I am wondering if anyone has found a way to clean stuff that won't injure the glass top. I think it might be a soft aluminum popcorn popper that did this, so aluminum cleaners might work but we are afraid the abrasive will damage the surface.

Try Barkeeper's Friend. Chances are, it will work.

Actually, I think the color and patten of a glass cooktop is on the surface and my cleaning efforts actually have removed enough to look like dirt. I don't think any thing else can be done, but I welcome suggestions.
