‘I use a baking tray. Stand upright against the tiles. Easy to clan, food good for the environment,’ a member commented. 

‘Get a piece of ply wood from Bunnings and tape some foil around it. Every time you have to fry just put the board behind the cooker. This way you save using too much parchment paper,’ suggested a second. 

A third wrote: ‘Our tiles are 14+ years old and look as good as the day they were put in. I just wipe them over with lavender spray and wipe or Windex surface spray. 

‘Once a fortnight I give the tiles one good wash using a bar of Velvet Pure soap from the laundry section. Wipe with a clean cloth and clean water. Comes up super duper. It is the best degreaser,’ they continued. 

Another said to keep the lids on as much as possible while cooking and a third added they place foil over their pots to save them cleaning oil off the stovetop. 

One woman said she uses cling wrap which sticks to the tiles easily however someone warned it could melt if it’s too close to an element. 

‘Enduroshield tiles and grout treatment! Look for your local certified applicator, you won’t regret it. Don’t do the DIY kits though,’ another replied.
