How to remove stains from white appliances?

Asked by thebeadholder (867 points ) June 14th, 2008

Our stove has some stains where it has possibly been opened while broiling. They are above the door and on top of the door. I have tried numerous things to get in clean: bleach, Simple Green, brillo pad and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Perhaps I am doing something wrong? Does anyone have a good solution to cleaning (what I believe are) burn marks off of white appliances?

Try combining baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice:

I believe (from personal experience) that burn or scorch marks (yellowish?) are permanent.

SndfreQ’s solution works better than anything, altho I would add elbow grease. Don’t, however, get your hopes up.

I once left a smoking potholder on a white formica counter. Eventually I bit the bullet and got new kitchen counter tops, which I was ready for. Anyone who cooks has a less-than-pristine kitchen. The ones that make it to the magazines have never seen a boiled egg or baked potato.
