Oven cleaning methods

There are several methods you can use to clean your oven, depending on the level of dirt and the type of oven you have. Here are a few common oven cleaning methods:

  1. Baking Soda and Vinegar:
    • Mix a paste using equal parts baking soda and water.
    • Spread the paste over the interior surfaces of the oven, avoiding the heating elements and vents.
    • Let it sit overnight or for at least 12 hours.
    • Wipe off the paste using a damp cloth or sponge.
    • Spray vinegar onto any remaining baking soda residue and wipe clean.
    • Rinse with water and dry thoroughly.
  2. Commercial Oven Cleaner:
    • Follow the instructions provided on the commercial oven cleaner such as CillitBang
    • Typically, you’ll need to spray the cleaner onto the interior surfaces, avoiding the heating elements.
    • Allow the cleaner to work for the recommended duration.
    • Wipe off the cleaner using a damp cloth or sponge.
    • Rinse with water and dry thoroughly.
  3. Steam Cleaning:
    • Some ovens have a steam cleaning function that uses heat and water to loosen and remove dirt.
    • Remove any loose debris from the oven.
    • Pour water into the oven’s water reservoir, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Select the steam cleaning cycle and allow it to complete.
    • Once the cycle is finished, wipe away any loosened dirt or residue with a damp cloth or sponge.
    • Rinse with water and dry thoroughly.

Remember to always consult your oven’s user manual for specific instructions and guidelines on cleaning methods. Additionally, take necessary safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and ensuring proper ventilation, while cleaning your oven.
