    We have one of them fancy black top stoves in our motor home and its hard to keep clean as is the mirrors behind the stove. I was hoping someone had a suggestion for cleaning that.

    Thanks Lee

    Lee, i use awesome which can be found at dollar stores. I clean with it and then polish with a good auto polish. Has worked for me so far. Mine is the black metal. probably need to try on a small spot before going all th way.

    damn nash beat me too it ,, Lee ,, we have one of those in the house ,, and they make a polish or my favorite is the wipes ,, but i have found that if u wash it first with hot water ,, then dry it ,, then use the polish or wipes ,, turns out alot better ,, IMO ,, btw i use car wax on all my counters and faucets in my MH ,, keeps them looking shiny ,, plus helps to repel water spots and anything spilled ,, clean up is a breaze ,, and they always look new ,, as do i use furnature polish on all the cabinets ,, kinda pain but they shine ,, and easy to maintain ,, ;) :) :)

    Lee,

    Glad to see you back around.

    For the counters I use a product called Gel Gloss good on marble, corian, stainless even your alco rims, you name it.

    You might want to try Dawn Power Dissolver or Bar Keepers Friend on the stove top.

    Dang I post to this the other day but come in today and that post is gone. Weird. LOL Probably me.
    First off thank you all for the info, I have copied it and forwarded the info to my wife to decide which she wishes to use.

    Yes it is the smooth glass top stove.

    Van, been in hospitals, had a hip replacement, than got bloodclots in lungs, and have just plain been in no mood to do much but feel sorry myself.
    I am feeling better now and have a whole lot less pain, and I am getting around better now, so here I is.

    Re: Stove Top Cleaner

    Vanole, unfortunately I now am on blood thinners and have swollen lymph nodes on my esophagus. Doctor has to do blood draws every ten days on the blood thinners, until it finds a level blood count and also have to get another CT Scan in Dec for the lymph nodes. So unfortunately I am stuck in Utah until sometime in Dec. We thought about going south to Az until Dec and I would drive back to get the scan done. But..... decided we would winter here cuz "if" they have to do a biopsy after the scan "if" the nodes are still swollen, they may find its cancer or something else and I would be stuck here until that was repaired.
    Its a real bummer, if and when I get out of here again I may just stay gone from this state for as long as possible. :)
