While I was searching I bookmarked this article from the Reader's Digest which chronicles over 60 ways to use salt... I hadn't time to read it all, so I left it for later and used the knife method. Anyway. Once I read it and discovered you could use salt as a sprinkle to prevent the spills on the stove top from hardening, I planned to use it if ever it happened again.
As luck would have it, it did happen again (no, I did not do it on purpose to test out a tip...) and I sprinkled salt on right away. Would you believe, the salt absolutely did the trick and once the hob had cooled all I needed to do was wipe it away to reveal a clean stove top!
Have you got any fail safe tips for using salt?
