Delaying this “hard job” of cleaning the oven, it only makes it harder to clean. At least these were my mother words, until I found the secret recipe of cleaning the oven effortlessly. After trying all sort of remedies, I can say that this is the one that does real wonders in cleaning that greasy oven. I can’t say that is a pleasure to clean the oven, but it isn’t a hard job like is said!
– baking soda
– white vinegar
– rubber gloves
– paper towels
How to proceed?
Remove the grills and trays from the oven to clean them very well. With a paper towel, wipe the oven’s walls. In this way, dust and residue will fall. Then remove them with a paper towel.
In a small bowl, add 1 cup of baking soda and 3/8 cups of water. Add the water gradually, stirring well to obtain a paste of toothpaste consistency.
Put your rubber gloves and apply the paste all over the oven’s walls. You will notice that the paste will become brownish. Don’t worry, it’s normal.
Do the same with the grills that you’ve removed from the oven, but also with the tray if necessary.
Let the baking soda paste to act overnight or for at least 12 hours.
Then wipe the oven with a cotton cloth moistened in warm water. Remove the paste that is easy to remove. Don’t insist, even if the paste remains on the oven, because it is useful for the next step.
Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spray it over the entire surface of the oven.
Allow to stand for 2 to 3 minutes then wipe the oven well with warm water.
