I have the oven mate stuff for the main oven and shelves which I used yesterday, but it says not to use on the oven glass in the door.

I have tried a variety of household cleaners and degreasers but nothing is shifting this.

I have my step-mother arriving tomorrow...

How the hell do I shift my husbands baked on sausage grease stains?!

All ideas gratefully received!

there was a thread on here about softening the end of a dishwasher tablet and then rubbing it on the glass. I use brillo pads on mine. (those soap filled scourer things)

"Bar keepers friend" with a decent (non scratch) scourer will get rid pretty much anything!

Most supermarkets sell it now.

Thanks, the house isn't terrible; and DS is sick today so I'm off work so using my time wisely to get things sorted out.

Just the living room to really do (and a quick clean of the bathroom), and there's no point in doing that until DS is bathed and (hopefully) asleep as it's currently being a fort/garage/dinosaur world.

Oh, and my room needs doing, but I'll just shut the door! blush

After reading the other oven door thread I managed with fairy liquid and a cloth on a warm oven door. I was amazed how quickly everything came off.

Just ask your husband how he normally cleans the door after leaving the grease from his sausages to bake on?

Well, I can report that a combination of dishwasher tab and scourer shifted it

DH didn't cause the issue though, I did! blush

He cooked sausages, told me he'd done it and was waiting for the oven to cool to wipe it. I then got to it before he'd done it, and turned the oven on to bake a cake... so my fault really!

Hi, I just had my oven cleaned (i got a man in) ;) He used a blade,like a razor blade,i asked him where i can get one,he said ebay and that you must put fairy liquid solution on the glass first so you don't scratch the glass,he just slid the blade over the door and t'was like magic!!! all the burnt on slime just slid off leaving sparkling glass!! Ebay is your friend grin

I use fairy liquid and a stanley blade scraper for really baked on stuff, much quicker than scouring.

To quote my oven cleaning man, a blade will not scratch glass if you keep it flat. I would use Astonish and a blade.

I am rather anal and I wipe the door after every use. blush
