I have a new stove. There is a smoke stain on the enamel stove top. I have tried Easy Off, Simple Green, and some off brand cleaners, nothing helped. The smoke stain happened while the self cleaning oven cycle was running.

Call your local Sherman-Williams Paint store and ask for a product called Whiting. [1# tub; about $4-$5] Slightly dampen a soft cloth with sudsy water [wring out 99% of the water], wipe the stain lightly, sprinkle the Whiting onto it [as though you were sprinkling Parmesan Cheese on Spaghetti], 'Polish' the stain away. it will not scratch the enamel. Just make sure your cloth is not abrasive!
Toothpaste does the trick. Put toothpaste on stain leave for a few minutes and wipe off. Repeat if necessary.

I have a brownish stain coming from the exhaust hole of my oven. I believe it is smoke. It is on white enamel. It is on the top of my stove and very noticeable.
