No matter which type of food we prepare in the oven, it will get dirty and greasy at some point. And cleaning the oven with harsh chemicals can cause you headaches, literally.
Certainly, when you start cleaning the house, the oven is the one that causes the biggest problems, because that stuck and burnt grease requires time and effort. Sometimes, you wish you could replace the oven instead of cleaning it, but this is just a dream!
Anyhow, the struggle is over, at least for me, because I found the perfect solution to clean the oven effortlessly. I can’t say it’s a pleasure, as I read in an article, but it’s absolutely effective and it doesn’t involve the use of harsh chemicals. Works for me!
So let’s start!
Remove the grill and everything else is in the oven.
Measure half a cup of baking soda and add a spoon or two of water until a paste is obtained.
Put on a pair of rubber gloves and spread the paste all over the interior walls of the oven. Don’t forget! Spread the baking soda paste over the oven’s door and glass.
Continue until the entire surface of the oven is covered with this paste. If it ends, you can easily prepare another one. Close the oven door and leave the paste to act for 12 hours or overnight.
The next day, take a damp cloth and remove the hardened paste. Start by wiping the door inside. This will prevent you from getting dirty when cleaning the rest of the oven.
Continue to remove the dry paste. You will have to rinse the cloth several times, and if there are hardened pieces of paste, remove them with a silicone spatula.
After all this, put vinegar in a plastic bottle with a sprayer and sprinkle it over the oven’s walls. When vinegar gets into contact with the remaining baking soda paste, a foam will be formed which will be easy to clean.
It’s advisable to spray vinegar over small portions to remove burnt grease easily.
