We all know that cleaning an oven is a challenging task out of all the kitchen appliances at home. How can you simplify your cleaning process? Let’s check it out.
Before knowing the best hacks to clean and over, it is always recommended to get appliance insurance to cover your kitchen appliances from accidental damages or electrical/mechanical breakdowns.
Every time you bake in your Oven, the grime gets baked too, thus causing a problem with cleaning afterwards. For those who feel sick about cleaning an oven, these are the five tips you need to follow to make your Oven shine like a new one.
- Clean it with Baking Soda:
Simply mix baking soda, as most of them have this ingredient at home, with ½ a cup of water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Stir well to form a paste, then pour into an oven-safe bowl.
Once the mixture is ready, please take a little of it and apply it in areas where stubborn grime is encrusted to the Oven. Then place the bowl into the Oven and bake it for 45 minutes at 100 degrees Centigrade. After 45 minutes cycle, let it cool before you can clean it using a damp sponge or a scourer. Now, as the grime is loosened up, you can happily wipe it away.
- Clean the oven racks in Bath:
Sometimes we might be unable to clean the oven racks in the kitchen sinks as the place is small to soak and clean. So, you can grab some old towel or any cloth, an old toothbrush and 1 cup of washing powder. Once you have your cleaning gear, head to the bathroom and place the towel at the bottom of the Bath so that the racks won’t get any scratches.
Now fill the bathtub with hot water, and don’t forget to plug the drain. Once you feel that the water is sufficient to cover the racks, place them into the water. Then add washing powder, mix it well even with the water, and leave it overnight. The next day you can scrub the racks with an old toothbrush and rinse them for a clean rack.
- Naturally clean your Oven:
Many of you do not like to use chemicals to clean ovens either because they feel it’s unsafe or the smell can be harsh on your nose. Those who want a natural way to clean the Oven can use this trick of an easy lemon hack.
Just cut a few lemons, maybe 5 of them, into half pieces and squeeze the juice into the baking tray. Once the juice is placed in the Oven, try leaving the squeezed lemon in the tray. Then you need to bake it for 30 minutes at 250 degrees centigrade. The lemon juice and the skin allow steam in the Oven and clean it thoroughly from inside. Before you start cleaning, let the Oven cool down and then wipe it with a damp cloth.
- Another way to clean Oven is by using a dishwasher tablet:
Few of them prefer natural cleaning, which is good, but for people who are impatient in cleaning the Oven quickly, what trick do you have for them?
Let’s see; we can use a dishwasher tablet as a quick cleaning remedy for your Oven. It’s simple:
- Dip one end of the tablet in water.
- Rub it over the Oven where there is grime.
- Leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.
Once the dirt gets loosened up and then cleaned with a damp cloth, this process is very simple and easy; it won’t take more than 15 minutes to perform. Do try this remedy for better results.
- Use Vinegar paste to clean Oven:
This process is also easy as the before cleaning hack. We must mix 1/2 a cup of liquid dish soap, 1 ½ cups of baking soda and ¼ cup of white vinegar. Gently mix these things into a mixture and apply the paste inside the Oven wherever grease and grime are using an old toothbrush or abrasive sponge.
It would help if you left the Oven with the applied mixture overnight. The next day cleans the paste using a sponge and some clean water. After you wipe away all the grease, your Oven will look as new as ever and smell better than before.
Whatever process you feel comfortable with, you can follow for cleaning an oven but before that, when cleaning your Oven, use a vacuum to remove dirt, dust, crumbs, and other debris. It’s best to vacuum after running the self-cleaning cycle. It is a situation where a compact, lightweight vacuum is useful. You can use the hose or if you prefer, the crevice attachment if the hose feels too powerful.
Apart from cleaning, having kitchen appliance insurance can solve your problem, as the insurance people will send exper
