3 Tips for Cleaning an Oven


The oven is one of the least exciting things to clean. But don’t worry because we’ve got 3 tips on how to clean an oven.



#1: Use your Dishwasher!

You don’t need to spend so much time on scrubbing racks because your dishwasher is perfectly capable; put them in on the hottest setting and if necessary you can leave them in for the next cycle.

If you don’t have a dishwasher, you could fill your bath with hot water and some washing powder and then leave the racks to soak overnight. All you need to do after that is give them a little scrub the next morning.



#2: Use bicarbonate of soda

Make a paste with water and bicarb and once your oven has cooled, spread the paste over the walls and bottom of the oven (but make sure you are avoiding the elements) and leave it like that for at least an hour (leaving it like that overnight would be even better).

After that, a simple wipe with a cloth should get all the grease out of there.



#3: Steam it

If your oven isn’t very greasy and dirty, just bake an oven pan of water for like 20-30 min on the hottest setting. Switch the oven off after that and allow it to cool down before opening the door, then wipe with a damp cloth. That’s it!
