How to clean the oven


What products do you need to clean an oven?

When purchasing products to clean your oven, you have two options.If you don’t mind working with strong chemicals, you can buy a commercial oven cleaning product like Oven Pride.Oven grease is stubborn and tricky to remove, so chemicals like ethylene glycol, methylene chloride, sodium and potassium hydroxide, and petroleum distillates will do the job.

If you take this route, make sure you follow the instructions.Oven cleaners are corrosive and can damage your skin and eyes.The instructions will normally tell you to wear protective gloves and eyewear and to ventilate the room.If this sounds a little scary, you can use the humble baking soda, white wine vinegar and lemon juice method.Mix them together in equal parts until the liquid makes a paste.Layer it onto stubborn areas in the oven and let it sit for a few hours before you attempt to scrub away the grime.You will also need sturdy tools, so make sure you’ve got scrubbing brushes or scouring sponges handy.An old toothbrush is perfect for reaching the little crevices you would miss with a bigger tool.
