Safely Cleaning Porcelain, Enamel, etc.

Purchase "Whiting" from your Paint department (it's used to thicken paint and is the 'white' powdered residue that you see after polishing your car) for about $5/3-5lbs. (don't worry, this will last about 15 years). I purchased a large (6oz) salt shaker for using it.


Remove stains from tableware or any enameled item by dampening the article and sprinkling the whiting on it to create a pasty texture; then with a soft cloth, 'polish' the spots away.

After you have cleaned your stove top in your normal way, lightly dampen the top, sprinkle the whiting and wipe away with a soft cloth. You will see where spots of grease, etc. are, and the cloth will polish/remove these away.

Whiting WILL NOT scratch porcelain, glass, etc. The cloth has to be scratch free. Before washing car, sprinkle the whiting on auto windshield and clean/polish the windshield with newspaper, this will remove all road film. Finish washing car to remove traces of the white powder.

If you have articles that you have worn/scoured away the glass finish, this method will NOT work.
