Stainless steel stove top, please help.

Well, I guess my fantastik isn't doing the job, as well as my glasses, LOL. I have kind of burnt on crap around the burners (gas stove) anyone have anything I could put on it, and get it off, it is brushed stainless, so I can't scrub very hard.
I just got my new specs today, and oh boy, I think I liked my face, and house better without them, where did all these pores in my nose come from, LOL!

  • Quinn Mae, what did you try? Maybe it needs to sit for a bit? I am going to try the tea tree oil, keep you posted.

  • I tried a few things. I tried baking soda and vinegar (figured this wouldn't work unless left to sit for much longer than my patience allows), a recipe I found on FB that called for a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. It either is a hoax or it also has to sit. Then I tried Goo Gone and that didn't work that well either. It did get some of the smaller grime off (I have a little around where the burner units come out of the stainless steel on the range), but the larger spots are still there. I have a stainless steel cleaner that also takes some of that stuff off. I think it's Zep. I might try to get some plastic razor blades to scrape some of that stuff up eventually. I will just have to find some patience before trying it again.

  • Okay, got out the tea tree oil and tried that. It worked a better than the Goo Gone, but still left some of the grime. Then I tried a dry eraser sponge and that didn't work. So I ripped off a corner and used the dry erase with a dab of the tea tree oil and that worked pretty well. The dry eraser sponge is still a fine enough abrasive that it doesn't mar the brushed stainless finish. It might have worked better if I were more patient and let it sit for a few minutes. I have to make dinner soon though so it couldn't wait.
