Everyone has had that moment when they’re cooking. The casserole is in the oven and you get distracted by the TV, your book, your kids – next thing you know, the food as boiled over and is bubbling on the floor of your oven. This one little mishap will lead to a stain on your oven floor that causes smell, smoking and burning when you try to cook future dishes…unless you can get rid of that stain ASAP. Guess what? You can! And with using only one simple ingredient and not too much effort, either. Watch the video below to see how this quick oven-cleaning trick is done.

Melissa from Clean My Space shares her quick trick to a stain-free oven with us! And that trick is? Salt.

As soon as you notice the spill in your oven, turn the oven off and place a handful of salt over the future stain. The oven should be off but still warm, so be careful. Let the salt sit on the stain for a few minutes and then use a spatula to scrape the spill off the bottom of the oven, just like that!

This trick works in both self-cleaning and regular ovens and takes only one simple ingredient and a few minutes of your time to accomplish! Do you have a trick for removing oven stains? Share them in the comments section below.
