Experts keep on stressing on the fact that you should always clean drops and splashes of food once they fall on the stove; because if these splashes got heated and then cold again, they would be a scrubbing nightmare.

Therefore, once you see a drop or splash, clean it and save time and energy. The best way to do so is to use salt and spread it on the surface of the stove; the salt will keep the splashes from being stuck to the stove.

Then, you may just collect them using a wet wipe and it all will be lean and clear. You may even use a vacuum cleaner to save more time collecting the slat.
