    How do I get it off? SoftScrub and a scouring sponge isn't working. Any suggestions?

    * Use a new blade in a razor scraper. (Ed: Since you've already used soft scrub-- I would MIST the glasstop with water to try to keep down scratching b/f razoring just in case any abrasives are left behind.)

    U could try heating it up slightly and scraping it with a putty knife or something like that. Or keep it cool and scrape it off. Usually if the plastic gets really cold it will peel off in a hard sheet, so a possibility is using ice cubes on it to get it really cold. I dunno, that's usually what I do, and I've done that dozens of time LOL [​IMG]

    Had some plexi glass sheeting UV baked on to the plexiglass and it would not come off... went to home depot and they tested out a whole shelf of products, the only one which seemed to melt the plastic and allow it to be rubbed off was something called "orange oil". Might give that a try?
