You only need one or two dishwasher tablets and a bowl of warm water to clean your oven's glass. It's essential to ensure you have powdered cubes (tablets), not gel capsules, regardless of your chosen brand.

Firstly, soak the cube in warm water. Allow it to absorb some water but not so much that it disintegrates. You can then use this damp tablet for scrubbing.

There's no need for a sponge in this process. Simply lay the tablet flat and use your hand to move it in circular motions to scrub the stains. If the tablet starts to dry out, re-soak it. This method works great on glass and is effective on the surrounding metal parts of the oven door — although you may need to apply more pressure here. Once you're done, wipe away the residue with a damp cloth. Your oven door will sparkle like never before. It couldn't be simpler, could it?

Why this method works

Dishwasher tablets, made of concentrated detergent, are fantastic at removing even the most challenging, stubborn grease. They leave your dishes gleaming, and the same powerful cleaning agents also work on oven grease and food stains. It's worth noting that these tablets can even remove scorched food, making them ideal for tackling tricky oven stains.

Moreover, the abrasive surface of dishwasher cubes aids in removing stubborn stains yet is gentle enough to prevent scratching the oven glass. In short, they're ideally suited for cleaning tasks requiring scrubbing power and delicacy. This method is also effective on other similar surfaces.

Many oven doors come with a button that makes removing the glass for cleaning easy. Be sure to take advantage of this feature.
