5 Tips for Cleaning your Dirty Oven

1.Oven window glass: To get inside the glass panels of your oven, pick up a ($5) Torx screwdriver from your local hardware store, remove the front panel and use a mix of baking soda and water to scrub the glass clean! Let it dry and then gently replace the front cover.


2. Inside the oven: Try not to over think it when cleaning your oven! Be sure the oven is off, then remove the grates and grab your handy dandy vacuum cleaner to suck out all of the crumbs and burnt food!


3. Steam Bath: If you’d like to loosen up some of the scum on the sides of your oven, heat a pot of water with ½ cup of vinegar to 350 degrees to steam clean your oven. Let the water bubble away for about 30 minutes and then scrub the inside of your oven with warm water once the oven has cooled down!


4. Scrub-a-dub-dub! Create a thick paste with baking soda and water and coat the inside of your oven, leave it overnight and then scrub out with warm water to reveal your shiny ‘new’ oven!


5. Daily duty: Nothing beats regularly cleaning your oven! Try not to leave your poor oven until it becomes a disaster. If you bake a particularly messy dish, be sure to clean out your oven the next day. This will save you a lot of time and effort, “Future You” will thank you, I promise!
