Facebook user Lynne Williams said: “Salt, cheaper the better, sprinkle over before bed, have a kitchen roll ready to clear a path to the kettle in the morning.”

“Afterwards you wash with a degreaser, I recommend HG Oven, grill and BBQ cleaner.
“I do the same at home and it works perfectly every time.”
