Get rid of brown stains from oven doors ‘easily’ with a ‘cheap’ item

As we all strive to maintain a pristine and sparkling kitchen, the focus often falls on the countertops and appliances. However, one element that often slips under the radar is the oven glass window.

A clean and transparent oven glass door allows you to monitor your meals as they roast, bake or cook, without the need to open the oven door and lose heat.

Keeping your oven glass clean is a crucial part of maintaining your appliance in top-notch condition. After all, every splatter, spill, and kitchen mishap ends up in the oven – especially on the oven glass – until it’s properly cleaned.

Given that you can’t clean a hot oven’s interior, these messes are often forgotten by the time you’ve finished your dinner and the oven has cooled down. Consequently, dirt, grease, and grime can rapidly build up and become a nightmare to remove.

Thankfully, followers of cleaning influencer Mrs Hinch have taken to social media to share their top tips for cleaning oven glass. On the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman sought advice on removing “burnt on grease” from her oven door. Veronica Hooper asked: “Tips on cleaning burnt on grease from a glass oven door please.”

Out of the 126 responses she received, most suggested using a dishwasher tablet to clean the glass. Carrie Leiper shared: “Dishwasher tablet. Dip in hot water and rub it on door. I was sceptical but it’s brilliant.” Sharon Doyle Lapierre added: “Dishwasher tablet love. Soak the tablet in a bit of boiling hot water, spread it on the door and then leave to stand a bit, then wipe off.”

Dishwasher tablets are made of concentrated dishwasher detergent and are designed to cut through tough grease and leave your dishes sparkling. The hard powder tablets have an abrasive surface that helps to scour away stuck-on stains, yet they’re gentle enough not to scratch the oven glass.

Additionally, dishwasher tablets are quite affordable – a pack of 30 can be bought from Asda for £3, which works out at just 1p per tablet. They can also be purchased from Wilko, where a pack of 40 costs £3.

Other followers of Mrs Hinch suggested using washing up liquid alone or combining it with baking soda. Janette Falkiner suggested: “Neat washing up liquid and a Brillo pad. I did mine yesterday.”

Christine Everiss recommended: “Bicarbonate soda and washing up liquid to make a paste, then spread on and leave for 20 mins. Then use a non-scratch scourer and clean off with no scrubbing needed.”

In conclusion, whether you choose to use a dishwasher tablet or a combination of washing up liquid and baking soda, these simple and cost-effective methods can help you keep your oven glass clean and clear. So next time you’re faced with stubborn stains on your oven glass, remember these handy tips from the Mrs Hinch community.
