Are baking and cooking something you enjoy doing? If you anticipate you’ll be using your oven a lot more in the coming months, it’s a good idea to learn some simple strategies for cleaning it with bio-friendly solutions.
If you have unattractive burned marks on the bottom of your oven, it’s probably nothing a bottle of vinegar won’t fix. Saturate the messed-up area with vinegar, half-filled in a clean spray bottle. For the best benefits, set up a couple of hours to sit. Wipe it clean with a cloth and warm water and prepare to be amazed by your efforts.
2. Baking Soda
In a mixing basin, combine baking soda and water until paste forms. Allow the paste to remain on your stove overnight (focused on the very unclean parts). Take a plastic spatula that you won’t be used for food preparation the next day and rub away all of the baked-on buildups. If any residue remains, clean it with warm water and a sponge.
Reduce the temperature of your oven to a low setting. Turn it off and spray the covers with water before it cools down. Salt the inside of the oven liberally and set aside until it has cooled. Release stuck-on oil and burned-on meals with a heavy-duty sponge or plastic scrubber. Using a wet cloth and warm water, wipe the surface clean.
4. Vinegar and Baking Soda Combo
Is it necessary to enlist the help of heavy hitters? The assignment will be completed in no time with this excellent combination. Like your primary school volcano project, it fizzes and bursts as well… How many other cleaning products can make such a claim? Simply spray the interior of your oven with vinegar, then sprinkle with baking soda (pay special attention to the caked-on dirt on the bottom). Allow the materials to combine and the dirt to dissolve.
Preheat the oven to 200°F, then turn it off. On the middle rack, place an oven-safe dish containing ammonia. Set a second oven-safe dish on the bottom shelf of the oven halfway filled with boiling water. Make a night of it. The next morning (or afternoon, we won’t tell) sprinkle baking soda on a moist sponge and wipe down the inside of your oven. Prepare to be amazed at how clean your oven will be and how easy it will be to clean it.
6. Dryer Sheets and Dish Soap
This tip is for your oven racks, which also need to be looked after. To make the racks look brand new again, fill your bathtub with enough hot water to completely cover them. Soak 1 1/2 cup natural dish soap and 6 environmentally friendly dryer sheets in the water overnight. The next day, wipe down the racks with a dryer sheet (and maybe rinse out your tub, too).
