The Proper Hassle-Free Way to Clean Your Oven
Here is an entirely safe, hassle free, natural, and inexpensive way to clean your oven!
This method calls for no harsh chemicals and no high-heat. This method may not be as easy as the self-cleaning function, but it saves you money down the road. All you need is a little vinegar, baking soda, and some elbow grease.
1. Remove your oven racks and anything you may have inside including your thermometer.
2. Make a baking soda paste in a small bowl combine ½ cup of baking soda 3 tablespoons of water. Adjust as needed till you have a spreadable paste.
3. Coat your oven with your paste mix. Spread the paste all over the inside of your oven but be careful not to get it on your heating elements. It is normal for the baking soda to turn brown, and some areas may be chunky then others. Coat the oven as good as you can and pay close attention to the areas with heavier grease spots. *Gloves are recommended
4. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. You can even let it sit overnight. The greasier the oven the longer you are going to want to let it sit.
5. Clean your oven racks with soap, water, and a non-abrasive scrub brush or sponge.
6. Wipe out the oven with a damp dishcloth after it is done sitting. Make sure you get all the dried baking soda out of the oven. You can use a plastic or silicone spatula to help scrape off the excessive paste.
7. Spritz a little vinegar anywhere you see baking powder residue. The baking powder will react with the vinegar, and there will be mild foaming.
8. Wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and remove remaining vinegar and baking soda mixture. Repeat until baking soda residue is gone. Add more water and vinegar to make your oven sparkle.
9. Place oven racks back in the oven and anything else that belongs in your oven.
With these 9 simple steps your oven will look brand new and you don’t need to worry about blowing a thermal fuse with the self-cleaning function.
