    Glass hob stain! 16th Apr 19 at 9:33 PM
    Iíve got a stain on one of the rings on the glass hob! Iíve used hob bright over and over with a scraper but it wonít come off! It feels like itís smooth so Iím not even sure if the stain is inside it? It is almost a silver pearlescent sort of thing ! Pic attached; any advice please ?! Imgur link /a/DpI0FlT[/IMG]
    Thankyou

    Looks like scratches rather than a stain, doesn't it?


    Try Bar Keeper's Friend if you like, but I think you are stuck with the scratches.

    Agreed, looks like marring/scratches to me rather than any stain. Not much chance of getting rid of that I'm afraid.

    Did it start off as a stain and become scratches? OP said they'd used a scraper over and over...

    Is there a specific version of barkeepers friend for hobs? And no. Itís not scratches. I do admit under the flash of my phone it does look really scratched however thatís the the thing Iím talking about. Itís really hard to picture! Itís kinda grey and marbly kind of! Iíll try and get a better photo today!

    Yes, it's marring. How old is the hob?

    Flash photography cannot reveal something that does not exist. There are clear straight lines, either on your camera or the hob or both.

    There are only three types of products you can use: strong detergent, acid or alkaline. You do not say what caused the mark initially, but the cause dictates the solution.

    Overusing a stronger product and/ or a stronger product with an abrasive will damage most surfaces. Unfortunately your post suggests that is what has happened.
