Hello fanda,

You can use a razor ( the kind you can buy at a hardware store that has a small handle on it ) and get the worst up . Then use a SCOTCH-BRITE pad with the range top cleaner - polish that comes in a bottle ( it's sold in most groceries now ) to get the rest. Don't overdo it with the razor as you don't want to sctatch the glass. Thanks for using justanswer.

OK fanda,

This might sound crazy but try using AVON SKIN-SO-SOFT , I know that it works great on glued on tape and glue residue. Lighter fluid is another thing that may work.
