I wouldn't use gumption, it's very abrasive. Turmeric stains will fade over time, just keep wiping with a damp cloth and it will come off eventually. I made curry powder last week, and my MC and lid were vibrant yellow for a few days, but it's almost completely faded now.  :)

Don't rub too hard either.

Definitely go with the gumption. I use it to clean everything including the stainless steel sink and it is especially good at getting grease off the glass on the inside of the oven door!  As mentioned, a little bit goes a very long way and I would be lucky to get through a tube every  18 months or so.

Be careful when using an abrasive cleaner as you can rub off the control markings on your TM. :)

I use bi-carb for everything. It doesn't scratch even a matt finish stainless steel toaster.
Gumption is good, but it has detergent and needs to be rinsed to remove it. Bi carb just wipes off first time.

I'd still be careful not to rub vigorously, though.

I would try a natural cleaner before using a commercial one as there is less chance of "setting" the stain. I would try wiping the bicarb on with a damp cloth and then spray with vinegar. While it is fizzing rub gently with a chux.

Correction:
I have just checked Shannon Lush's book (from the ABC radio program) and she says to fill a 1 litre spray bottle with water and add 1 teaspoon of lavender oil. Shake well and lightly mist over the area and then wipe off.

Not knowing where the stain is I would be very careful whatever you do that you do not remove any of the control marking. Any of the mentioned products/solutions could potentially do that.

Good Luck!
