Use Salt as Quick Fix.
The next time your food boils over in your oven, do not give it a chance to bake on by only cleaning it once the oven is cool. All you need to do is combine one-third of a cup of table salt with one cup of baking soda. Fill an unused spray bottle with water and liberally spray your oven surface. Sprinkle the salt and baking soda mixture over the water, and then spray with water again. Allow the mixture to sit overnight. Wipe up the loosened residue the next morning and wash with hot soapy water.
This method is suitable for spot cleaning and does not take a lot of effort. Using common ingredients found in any kitchen, you will be able to clean a mess as soon as it happens — without burning your fingers, says compactappliance.com.
Steam Clean Your Oven With Vinegar.
- Remove your oven racks and use a duster or vacuum cleaner to remove any loose debris. Put one rack back in the oven on one of the lowest shelves.
- Preheat your oven to its highest temperature.
- Half fill a large, oven-safe bowl or pot with water and half a cup of vinegar.
- Place the pot in your oven and leave for between 20 and 60 minutes, allowing the steam to loosen grease and dirt from the oven walls, floor, and ceiling.
- Turn off your oven and allow it to cool.
- Once your oven is cold enough, you can wipe off the condensation formed on the inside of the oven. Use a clean, dry cloth, and you will see that the grease and dirt come off quickly.
- If any stubborn stains remain, you may need to try a spot treatment. Make a paste with four tablespoons of baking soda and 150ml of water, add some to a kitchen sponge, and use it to scrub the stains away.
- Rinse your sponge and wipe these spots clean. Then dry them with a soft cloth.
- In the meantime, place your shelves and any baking trays in an oven-cleaning bag. If possible, leave them to soak overnight.
- The next morning, scrub any dirt and grime off the shelves and trays using a sponge and hot soapy water. Source: ovenue
Steam Clean Your Oven With Lemon.
If you’re looking to get rid of some tough grease and dirt on the inside of your oven, try a little steam cleaning with lemon. According to ovenclean.com you can do the following;
- Fill an oven-proof bowl with water.
- Take one or two lemons (limes would also work), cut them in half, and squeeze the juice into the bowl.
- Place the bowl in the oven.
- Close the door of your oven, and turn your oven on.
- Keep an eye on the water, and as soon as you see it start to boil, turn the oven off, allowing it to cool down with the door closed while the steam circulates.
Clean the Oven Naturally With Baking Soda and Vinegar.
Sean Parry of Neat Services suggests mixing one-half cup of baking soda with water to create a paste. “Next, spread the paste all over the bottom of the oven, the side walls, and the inside of the glass oven door, but avoid the heating elements,” he says.
Leave the mixture on for a minimum of two hours, but note it’s also a great way to clean an oven overnight. Then take a spray bottle, fill it half with water and a half with white vinegar and spray it all over the baking soda. “The acid in the vinegar will then react with the baking soda, causing it to foam. This action helps to remove the burnt-on food stains from the oven,” he says.
After leaving that on for another 30 minutes, use a rubber spatula (if necessary) and a rag to remove the baking soda mixture. Finish by wiping everything down with a damp cloth.
