Pinner says "Ok, I just tried this and it seriously did work. I did it twice on a burner that's had scorch marks for a year or more and they're gone! For anyone as OCD about cleaning as I am, this is a must!

    This really works!!! My black cook top stove shines like a car that's been waxed a 100 times!!! I will never use anything else. Thanks for the brilliant idea.

    Ours is black, so im curious why ours is not shiny?

  • Chloe Wallington

    U have to rub it real good and let it self dry. After u may see a little cloudy spot, just rub with a pure cotton cloth like "an old t- shirt" something of that nature!! It worked great for me. I did use dawn dish soap not sure if that made a difference or not. One last thing I had my towel, tag more than "damp" when I left it on. I hope it works as good for u as it did for me!!!! Good luck Kath!!!!

    I must have done something wrong. I tried it exactly as described but it didn't work. I hate the smell of the cleaner that I have to use for my glass top so I'd love to figure out how to make this work.

There is a little trick to applying dark wax over chalk paint when painting furniture. Its super important to know before you apply it or you could end up having redo a lot of your work. Its crucial that before you apply the dark wax, you apply a full coat

    Do you apply a full coat of chalk paint or a full coat of dark wax ? before applying the dark wax..?

  • Sarah Spence

    1st coat with chalk paint ( I usually do 2 coats of paint but it's about preference really). Next the clear wax. The clear wax acts as a barrier. Last apply dark wax. Adding clear wax prior to dark wax allows more time to work with the dark wax. Without the coat of clear wax, your chalk paint absorbs dark wax too quickly and the piece can easily become too dark.

Keep your oven clean. STEP 6: LOOSEN UP To loosen baked on food particles from your oven, put a bowl of boiling water into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes with the door closed, which allows the steam to loosen up dried messes, making for much easier clean up.
