How to clean your oven like a pro | The Independent

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean your oven:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Baking soda
  2. Water
  3. Vinegar
  4. Dish soap
  5. Rubber gloves
  6. Old rags or paper towels
  7. Scrubbing brush or sponge
  8. Plastic spatula or scraper (optional)
  9. Oven-safe bowl or container

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Safety First: Before you begin, make sure your oven is turned off and completely cool. Also, ensure proper ventilation in your kitchen by opening windows or turning on the exhaust fan.
  2. Remove Oven Racks: Take out the oven racks and any other removable parts like pizza stones or thermometer. Set them aside for cleaning separately.
  3. Loose Debris Removal: Use a plastic spatula or scraper to gently remove large, loose pieces of burnt food or debris from the oven bottom and walls.
  4. Baking Soda Paste:
    • In a bowl, mix about 1/2 cup of baking soda with a few tablespoons of water to create a paste.
    • Adjust the quantities until you have a spreadable paste consistency.
    • Spread the paste over the interior surfaces of the oven, avoiding the heating elements.
    • Let the paste sit overnight or for at least 12 hours. This will help to loosen baked-on grime and grease.
  5. Clean Oven Racks:
    • While the baking soda paste is working on the oven, clean the oven racks.
    • Fill a bathtub or large sink with warm water and add some dish soap.
    • Place the racks in the water and let them soak for a few hours.
    • Use a scrubbing brush or sponge to remove any remaining grime. Rinse and dry the racks before placing them back in the oven.
  6. Wipe Down Interior:
    • After the baking soda paste has had time to work, use a damp rag or sponge to wipe down the interior surfaces of the oven.
    • For stubborn spots, you can use the scrubbing brush or sponge to gently scrub the residue.
  7. Vinegar Spray:
    • Put equal parts of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.
    • Lightly spray the interior surfaces of the oven with the vinegar solution.
    • The vinegar will react with the baking soda residue, causing it to foam and loosen.
    • Wipe down the interior again with a clean, damp rag or sponge to remove the remaining residue.
  8. Final Rinse:
    • Use a clean damp cloth or sponge to give the oven one final wipe-down to ensure all traces of baking soda and vinegar are gone.
  9. Replace Oven Racks: Once the oven is clean and dry, place the oven racks back in their respective positions.
  10. Exterior Cleaning:
    • Wipe down the exterior of the oven with a clean, damp cloth to remove any grease or dirt.
  11. Finish Up:
    • Dispose of any dirty rags and rinse cleaning tools thoroughly.
    • Wash your hands and remove your gloves.
    • Congratulations, your oven is now clean and ready to use!
