Once the oven had cooled enough to touch, Kacie then scrubbed the grease off with some For All dishwashing detergent on a steel wool scourer. 

‘The water on the steel wool helps spread For All around and makes it soapy,’ she wrote in the clip’s caption. 

She suggested using ‘0000 fine steel wool’ from the painting aisle if the glass on the oven door tends to scratch. 

Kacie also used a scraper on thick grease then wiped the oven down with a microfibre cloth.
