Plastic Wrap Melted on a Smooth Cooktop Range

Some plastic wrap touched a hot burner on my smooth cooktop/stovetop. It burned and made an awful, stinky mess. What can I do?

Here is another guess that might really surprize you, and I think it will work. I sound like a living advertisement but the quick erase sponges, two brands Mr. Clean and Scotchbrite, they also have a brand by Mr. Clean that is safe for car cleaning and you know how much people can baby there cars? Hope it helps.

Maybe this would work: freeze it with an ice cube to make it brittle and use a single-edged razor blade (window scraper) to scrape it off. I melted a little plastic on my stove last week and after it cooled, it popped right off. Good luck.

You are supposed to be able to use a razor blade (not at an angle) but flat to the surface to scrape these type of things off. But you should probably call Sears or Home Depot first and ask them in appliances first.

Thanks to all who offered ideas - I tried petroleum jelly, no go. Then I tried freezing, but it didn't come off with a plastic spatula. I was afraid to use a razor but had a very flexible putty knife. The plastic was probably still at least partially frozen. It didn't come off easily, but neither did I scratch the cooktop, and eventually got it all off.

Thanks again!
