Yep, you’re right. Oven cleaning isn’t the nicest job in the world and I’m sure you won’t be rushing home from work to do it or spend a Saturday morning doing this dirty task. However, it’s important that you maintain a clean and hygienic oven for both your own use and later handover when your tenancy comes to an end.
The amount of cleaning you’ll have to do will vary based on the type of oven you have and cleaning chemicals you;re going to use. In this post, we’re going to show you a few tips to keep your oven looking tip top!
I suppose the easiest and most convenient method to clean your dirty oven is to use a supermarket spray on cleaner. Now, don’t think you need to use an expensive branded cleaner like Mr Muscle. One of the cheap kitchen cleaners or even bathroom degreaser will do just fine. So, no need to break the bank!
All you need to do is spray on the cleaner onto the internal areas of your oven. Note: Try not to spray onto the heating element directly. This could cause you a few problems later on. Once you’ve applied your spray, heat your oven per instruction manual (if you have it). Allow it to cool down and then use a damp sponge or cloth and wipe the surface clean. Don’t forget those sexy rubber gloves too (we don’t want you getting those hands dirty or damaging your nails).
You could also try using Amonia to clean your oven. Unfortunately, this will take a little longer to get your oven really clean, but if you’re interested, here’s what you do. Fill a bowl with half a cup of Amonia and place it in your oven. Over night is probably the best time to leave it in your oven since you’re guaranteed it won’t be used during this time period.
You’ll find that the fumes from the Amonia will actually break a lot of the carbon build up in the oven. You’ll then remove the rest of the food residue using a steel wool (you can pick these up in a supermarket). After you’ve done this, use some lukewarm soapy water to wash the internal area thoroughly.
That’s it. A couple of easy ways to get your oven sparkling clean!
