How to clean your oven
First, How Often Should You Clean Your Oven?
In the same way frequent tidying means less extensive cleaning later, the more upkeep you do on your oven, the easier you’ll find the clean-up process. Beyond making the chore more bearable, a clean oven also makes for tastier food and less germs. Aqua Team UK recommends cleaning your oven at least every three to six months, or more often if needed. It’s also wise to spot-clean throughout the month.
Use a Store-Bought Oven Cleaner to Remove Baked-On Grease
One option is to use a chemical store-bought cleaner, such as Easy-Off Professional Fume Free Max Oven Cleaner. After removing any large pieces of loose food, spray your choice of cleaner evenly onto the interior of the oven and allow it to set for at least 30 minutes.
The cleaner lifts the grime and grease, allowing you to easily wipe it away.
Because the chemicals are potent, it’s best to open windows and wear gloves and a face mask while cleaning the oven.
Skip the Chemicals and DIY Your Own Oven Cleaner
If you want to clean your oven without oven cleaner, you can DIY a natural cleaner using baking soda, vinegar, and water.
Why not try to skip the chemical oven cleaner and use a safe and simple solution that still gives you awesome results.
A great homemade oven cleaner is a combination of baking soda and water. The baking soda acts as an abrasive and the water softens baked-on crud and loosens food particles.
Make a paste and apply it liberally on the oven’s interior surfaces and give it [at least] 20 minutes (ideally longer) to break down the burned food.
You can also add a bit of vinegar to your baking soda mixture for some extra cleaning power. Simply spray the vinegar on top and allow it to bubble and set for 20 minutes. Next, use a non-abrasive pad to gently scrub all surfaces—try Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scour Pads or Mr. Clean Magic and follow up with a damp microfiber cloth.
How to Clean the Oven Racks
Regardless of what type of oven you have, the best way to clean the metal racks is to remove them from the oven entirely and soak them in boiling water with a little dishwasher detergent. The bathtub is a suitable place to soak oven racks, though you may want to clean the tub afterwards. After soaking for two hours, scrub the racks with a stiff brush, rinse, and dry before returning them to the oven.
Instead of boiling water, you can also use the baking soda and water mixture with vinegar spray. The key is letting it set long enough for the ingredients to work their magic so that scrubbing is minimal.
How to Clean Oven Knobs
Its advised against spraying the oven knobs directly with a household cleaner. The liquid could get behind the knobs and switches and short out the control panel. Instead, spray a rag with liquid cleaner and then rub the controls to prevent shorting.
A simple damp microfiber rag used on and around the knobs will do the trick. If the job requires it, use a rag with a bit of soap or a disposable wipe.
How to Clean Glass Oven Doors
Your oven’s glass door requires a gentler approach compared to the racks since glass is more susceptible to scratches. That means skipping abrasive products and using a less aggressive scrubbing technique.
To clean glass without scratching it, mix baking soda and water for a thick paste. Spread the paste generously on the glass and let it sit for 20 or more minutes. After, gently wipe up the paste with a microfiber cloth, rinse thoroughly with water, and buff it dry for a sparkling shine.
Alternatively, you can spritz on soapy water or an oven cleaner. To finish the job, use a standard glass cleaner or a bit of diluted vinegar and a soft cloth for extra shine.
Sometimes an oven’s glass door is comprised of two pieces of glass, which can lead to an accumulation of crumbs, dust, or grease streaks over time. This is something you can clean easily, though it does require a few extra steps.
First, open the door and rest it on your leg for support, then unscrew along the top of the door. (By letting the door rest on your legs you’ll prevent it from falling and breaking.) Once unscrewed, you’ll have access to the in-between layers of the oven. To clean up dust and crumbs, use a vacuum hose with a small nozzle. To clean grease, use a damp sponge with a long handle. attached.)
