Stoves with glass hobs are revered for their slick, contemporary look and because they are simple to clean. Glass hobs are delicate, however, and are easily scratched by things like abrasive cleaning pads and the bottoms of heavy pots and pans. Various products are available to help you restore your scratched glass hob to its former glory.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is used to fill and smooth shallow scratches. Add water until a thick paste is created. Rub the paste over the scratches gently with a soft cloth using circular motions. Buff the area with a clean, soft cloth.

Clear Nail Polish
