My Corning stove top always gets dirty when I cook on it and have overspill. I first use some Soft Scrub, then I take an old credit card and scrape it clean. Last, I wipe it with a soft cloth, and I have a clean stove. No trouble at all.

Uses for "fake" credit cards that come with credit card offers.
I use an old credit card to clean the algae off of the front of the aquarium. Also, I took a watercolor class where the instructor used an old credit card like a squeegee to move paint around.
I use old credit cards as kitchen bench food scrapers. I find that they get off all food scraps easily. This means you save money on kitchen sponges, and the bench top doesn't get scratched.

Use an expired credit card as a scraper while washing dishes. It easily removes stuck on food without marking the dish or pan.
Don't throw away your outdated credit card. I use it to clean my kitchen counter, especially after making some thing like pie crust.
