Stain on Toaster Oven


Someone left a bag of toast bread on the toaster oven while they heated up a meal, the result being that the paint from the bread bag heated up and stained the top of the oven.

I tried heating the oven and scrapping it off to no avail. Is my option to paint over the stain?

Make whoever left that bag there buy you a new oven.
As cheap as they are it's not worth sanding priming and paint with high temp. paint.

Of the thousands of decorative trivets available I'm sure there is one suitable to cover that mistake.

You want an old man on the farm to suggest interior decorating? Possibly google, ebay, wallmart or some local fancy interior decorating shop would have some ideas.

Sorry, I had no idea you were "an old man on the farm." I just thought since you brought up the idea, suggesting there are plenty of ways, that naturally you'd have one in mind. But that's OK, I see your point.

Magic eraser? That stuff works wonders. Otherwise you could secure a small sheet pan/baking pan to the top of it.

Have you tried the magic eraser or barkeepers friend route? I don't know if they'd work on a burnt in type stain, but it'd be worth a shot?

Here's how I would attack the problem:

1. Try using a variety of solvents starting with nail polish remover, turpentine, WD40, gun cleaning solvent (bore solvent will degrade plastic fast) choke cleaner, etc. Put some on a cloth and let soak on stain overnight to soften the plastic residue.

2. Then try emery cloth or jewelers cloth but NOT sandpaper.

3. Next a vibrating sander with the finest grade of paper possible.

4. Still no luck, then sand and paint.

5. If that looks hideous then cover or pitch.

Nick, the magic eraser did not work. Good try though.

Dan, I'll post back my results.

I think Goo Gone or Goof Off might work. They work really well to remove sticker residue. You can get them at Wal-Mart and most other major retailers and home improvement stores.
