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.
