It’s past six in the evening; you came home tired and all you want is a comforting dinner. You simmer a few ingredients in a pot and go about your evening—when all of a sudden you hear a low hiss. You go to the kitchen, only to find that your dinner has boiled over, and worse, it’s spilled onto your stovetop. Don’t fret—it happens to the best of us. But what do you do now?

Well, you should finish cooking and eat your dinner first. This may seem counterintuitive, since you might think that the waiting time will allow deeper stains to form on your cooktop. While that may be the case, it’s not worth burning your fingers over! Make sure you let the grills cool first, then follow these steps:

1.) Take off the grills and wipe off the spill with a damp cloth. Make sure you get all the spilled sauces to prevent deeper staining.

2.) Squeeze a few drops of dish soap onto a wet sponge. Scrub the stain thoroughly.

3.) Repeat as necessary. Pass over the area a few more times until it’s clean, then wipe away the soap with a kitchen towel.

4.) Remove residue from the grill before you put it back on. Use your sponge to scrub away at any stains that may have formed on the grill. Give it a quick rinse with water, fit it back onto your stovetop—and voila! It’s like the spill never happened!
