DIY Oven Cleaning – from

Let’s face it. Oven cleaning can be a rather laborious task at the best of times. But, if you still feel the need to do-it-yourself here’s some quick tips that may help.

Self Cleaning Element

You may or may not have realised this, but your oven probably has a self cleaning element on either the front, sides or top of the oven cabin. You’ll be able to tell if it does since it’ll feel a lot harsher to touch than the rest of the oven.

Simply Follow The Instructions

Simply follow the instructions in your instruction booklet (if you still have), you’ll probably find it in the “man drawer” where all those bits and bobs are normally found. The vast majority of these ovens are designed for you to turn the temperature up to a certain level for around an hour and the self cleaning elements will heat up so that any grime or carbon will fall to the bottom of the oven.

When It’s Cool

When the oven cools down, you should be able to wipe the bottom of the oven with a cloth or tissue clearing up the grease or carbon that has fallen.

That’s the easy bit. Next, you’ll need to start at the top and work your way down. First of all take off all of the knobs and place them into a pan with a little detergent and water to soak while you clean the rest of the oven.

Use A Non-Abrasive Detergent

From here you may wipe the front sides and top with a non abrasive detergent. There’s plenty on the market and I’ll leave it up to you to shop for the best one. The enamel itself is made of a glass and steel mixture. This is pretty hard to clean properly and your best bet is to try and clean as you go.

You Need More Than “Mr Muscle”

There are lots of different cleaning agents on the market such as “Mr Muscle” etc which claim to be tough on grime within the oven. Unfortunately, if the truth be told, elbow grease is the best and safest way of cleaning your oven or hob.
