Who doesn't love a bargain hack, and this 10p trick will get your oven looking spotless.

If you need to get your oven clean, you don't need to break the bank.

A Mumsnet thread shared top tips and hacks on how to get your kitchen sparkling.

The good news is, you don't need to spend a fortune on pricey oven cleaners either.

Just raid your cupboard for a dishwasher tablet.

It turns out they can be used to remove stubborn grease from the door.

One mum wrote: "I wet a dishwasher tablet and rub it on the glass door – it cleans all the grease off.

"Wipe off the residue with a damp cloth, then dry," genius!

It turns out that they work for items as well as your dishwasher and oven!

They shared: "Incidentally, if you get gunk on your iron, iron a dishwasher tablet to clean that too."

You learn something new every day!

Commenters rushed to reply with their results after giving it a go.

One person wrote: ‘We tried it and it was amazing.

"The stuff just came off. Also takes the gunk off the kitchen cupboards and tiles next to the hob. I’ve been wondering round the kitchen with a tab wondering what else it will clean."

"I’m a fair age, well versed in various cleaning tips and tricks, how did I not know about this? Neither did my mum," marvelled another.

"Is this actually really well known? And why hasn’t some bright manufacturing spark come up with an actual cleaning product like this?"

On Instagram, one cleaner shared a tip that the tablets can be used to clean your toilet, too.

When you think about it, it makes sense that a dishwasher tablet would work.

After all, they're designed to tackle tough grease on plates and cutlery.

Ovens are often marked with baked-on food, the same as our plates.
