You can actually avoid such a situation by consciously using a deep vessel so that you can prevent splattering. Also, if some portion of the liquid spills, make sure that you wipe it off quickly before it dries.
Clean your stove daily
Due to time constraints (and sometimes due to sheer laziness), you might skip the task of washing your cooking stove. You might be wiping your spills immediately and getting rid of the majority of the stains but it is still important to clean your stove at the end of the day.
You can wash the burner drip plates and some of the removable accessories and manually wash them in the sink. If not in the sink you can also place them in the dishwasher before you run another cycle.
While removing the accessories ensure that you do not unknowingly pull out any electric wire. It is wise to be careful with the control panel knobs while cleaning the base of your stove.
Possibly wash the knobs with hot soapy water and rinse it dry.
This way, you will not cause any damage and the process is quite easy to perform. Remember, to clean the stove before you call it a day.
Use the right solution
Despite your best efforts to wipe of the spills pretty quickly, you are bound to miss some of them and will have to get rid of them in the end. By the time you notice the spill again it has already dried off and will not be removed with a single scrub.
The best method is to prepare a solution of either warm water and vinegar or warm water and dishwashing liquid. Make sure that you take solutions in a ratio of 50:50. Preferably clear them as quickly as possible and not leave it for another day because the next day is likely to be accompanied by a new set of spills.
