I have heard that stove polish is good for irons. I did a search for stove polish and found that there were many both liquid and paste. I found that most say not for painted metal and one not for bare metal. However, when I was reading the reviews on Amazon about one that was not for painted metal that they said that the used it after painting and was pleased with the results.

My question is which did you use and whether it was a liquid or a paste?
