Oven cleaning is one of the most hated and worse household cleaning tasks. Its one of those jobs that we tend to put off as much as we can. Once you close the Oven door you can no longer see the grease and grim.
I have to always have a clean oven and being quite a traditionalist after we have had our Sunday Roast I am straight in armed in my rubber gloves ready to go. Daily I wipe the Oven over with a damp cloth and a multi-purpose product to ensure its stays clean as If grease and grim build up your Oven Clean can become a much more time-consuming job.
I have tried many products over the years and two of my favorite products are:
Oven Pride. Oven Pride makes oven cleaning less of a nightmare, it’s a unique bag cleaning system that has been designed to give unbeatable results. It’s so easy to use but please make sure before you start to use Oven Pride you read the instructions and wear the provided gloves.
Bicarb is really effective and makes the daunting task of oven cleaning a little easier. All you have to do to get a shining oven is spray the whole oven down inclusing the glass door with a water bottle so that it is damp, and pour on a thick layer or bicarbonate of soda, especially on the bottom, until there is about 1/4 inch layer of bicarbonate of soda paste on the bottom. If any of the baking soda is still dry, I wet it with the water bottle.
Once the bicarbonate of soda has been applied then you need to add some neat white wine vinegar to a spray bottle and then liberally spray this all over the oven so it reacts and works with the bicarbonate of soda. After close the door and leave for a few hours. The two products work amazingly with each other and will start to lift all the dirt and ground in grease.
I’ve found that it is important to make sure that the bicarbonate of soda residue has been completely removed before using the oven as any remaining bicarb may smoke if left in contact with the heating element.
For the wire racks I use wirewool and washing up liquid and I find this brings them up like new.
I hope this helps with your oven cleaning and remember if you try to wipe over your oven every time you use it with a simple warm soapy cloth this job will be a whole lot easier.
