Cleaning your oven glass is a vital aspect of keeping the device in good working order. At the end of the day, every splatter, spill, and mishap that occurs in the kitchen stays in the oven – and particularly on the oven glass – until you clean it properly. Since you cannot clean the interior of a warm oven, the messes are forgotten by the time you finish your dinner, and the oven cools down. As a result, dirt, grease, and grime can quickly accumulate and be a nightmare to get off. Fortunately, Mrs Hinch fans have taken to social media to share their top oven glass cleaning tips.

Posting on Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman asked for tips on how to remove “burnt on grease” from her oven door. Veronica Hooper said: “Tips on cleaning burnt on grease from a glass oven door please.”

Out of the 126 comments left on the post, the majority said a dishwasher tablet is all that’s needed to clean the glass.

Carrie Leiper said: “Dishwasher tablet. Dip in hot water and rub it on door. I was sceptical but it’s brilliant.”

Sharon Doyle Lapierre commented: “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.”

Donna Sears wrote: “Dishwasher tablet. Wet it a little bit and then scrub it along the burnt bits/glass. It removed all the stains from my oven door really easily – even the extremely stubborn ones.”

Caroline Ennis advised: “Dishwasher tablet, the cheap ones and hot water.” Chris Szczygielski agreed: “Use a dishwasher tablet dampened on the glass, it works well.”

Sinead Reilly instructed: “Wet a dishwasher tablet (not a pod) and rub it on the glass. Swear to god it works brilliantly. I bake cakes in my oven for weddings, christenings etc so it gets manky. The tablets work wonders.”

Natasha Madison said: “Something I discovered on this page is a wet dishwasher tablet and rub hard. No abrasion and works a treat.”

Jess Aciobanitei wrote: “Get a dishwasher tablet, dip in water and rub on the glass. It can be time consuming but works wonders.”

Samantha Carr urged: “Don’t use pink stuff paste it can be abrasive to glass it can crack your oven door. 

“I use a dishwasher tablet and you can get scrapers that are suitable for glass that scrapes off the burnt on stuff.”

Eleanor Ford added: “A dishwasher tablet is amazing. Works great on oven glass stains and it’s so cheap.”

Dishwasher tablets are made of concentrated dishwasher detergent and promise to cut through tough grease and leave your dishes sparkling. 

Plus, the hard powder tablets have an abrasive surface that helps to scour away those stuck-on stains but is gentle enough not to scratch the oven glass.

Also dishwasher tablets are inexpensive as a pack of 30 can be purchased from Asda for £3. This works out as 1p per tablet. Britons can also buy the powder tablets from Wilko for a pack of 40 for £3.

Other Mrs Hinch fans suggested either using washing up liquid on its own or pairing it with baking soda.

Janette Falkiner said: “Neat washing up liquid and a Brillo pad. I did mine yesterday.”

Christine Everiss commented: “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.”

Muna Ahmed wrote: “One cup of baking soda, add a quarter cup of washing up liquid and a dash of water. Mix well and apply onto over leave for 2 hours and will look brand new.”

Sally Hutchins added: “Mix bicarbonate and washing up liquid to a smooth paste. Apply and leave about 30 mins or so, then wipe off. Amazing.”
