How to Remove Scratches From a Glass Cooktop

Knives or other cutting utensils can cause small surface scratches on cooktops, which can make a kitchen look untidy. In addition, iron skillets could damage the surface if they rub against the glass. Instead of replacing the stove, you can remove the scratches. This will give your stove a new life and is an inexpensive option compared with replacing a glass stove.

Step 1

Use the brush in the clear nail polish to apply a thick layer on each surface scratch. Look over the cooktop for any blemishes you may have missed.

Step 2

Wipe away any excess nail polish on the stove. If you accidentally brushed the polish on a non-scratched surface, rub it off right away.

Step 3

Allow the nail polish to dry. To be safe, let it sit for approximately 30 minutes to an hour.

Step 4

Use the buffing pad on the entire glass cooktop. Rub in a circular motion from left to right. Buff each area for roughly 30 seconds before moving on.

Step 5

Add a dab of glass polish to the buffing pad. Again, use a circular motion from left to right. Rub each area for about a minute. Apply more polish as needed. Let it air dry before using the stove glass cooktop.
