Mind-Blowing Oven Cleaning Hacks You Have To Try
No one enjoys cleaning an oven. But with the right tools and technique, it can be quick and easy.
Without a doubt, the easiest hack is to hire it out. The second is using one of the following methods.
Let your housekeeper take the day off, you’ve got this one covered.
What Is The Best Oven Cleaner?
For your glass stovetop, the clear winner is this cream-based cleaner.
It’s a bit grainy which helps pick up cooked-on-spills.
To use, add a small amount of the cleaner on your glass top and rub in a circular motion with a dry microfiber cloth or paper towel.
Then, grab a clean paper towel to remove any cleaner’s residue and buff the surface to a shine.
PRO TIP: Water should NOT be used as this would make the product less effective.
When cleaning the inside of an oven, these homemade cleaning recipes will be a lifesaver.
Option 1: Ammonia and Water
Begin by turning on your oven to 175 degrees Fahrenheit and then shut it off.
If you have a gas stove with a pilot light, it is HIGHLY suggested to turn both the gas and pilot light off for safety reasons.
While the oven is still warm, place a small bowl of Ammonia on the top rack.
Next, carefully place a large pot of boiling water on the bottom oven rack.
Allow it to sit overnight.
Warming up your oven will assist in cycling the air and “moving” the vapors around.
As we all know, Ammonia is very strong, and those vapors will break down the caked-on debris in your oven.
You can use a wet sponge with a few drops of dish soap to remove all debris the following morning.
Option 2: Cream Of Tartar
Yup, this makes it on the list for being an odd but useful oven cleaning hack.
Cream of tartar is used in baking, however, it does wonders as a polisher agent.
Sprinkle a layer of cream of tartar in the oven and allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes. A few passes of a sponge will reveal a shiny and happy range.

How Do I Get Baked On Grease Off My Oven?
Create a cleaning paste with the following ingredients: baking soda, vinegar, and water. Next, use a sponge to dab the mixture on the stubborn grease spots on your oven surfaces.
Next, please turn on your oven for 45 minutes to allow the mixture to do its job.
What Is The Fastest Way To Clean The Bottom Of An Oven?
The fastest way to clean the bottom of an oven is to use a self-cleaning mode. If your oven doesn’t have a self-cleaning mode, you can use a commercial oven cleaner or make your own oven cleaner.
To make your own oven cleaner, combine 1/4 cup baking soda with 1/4 cup vinegar in a spray bottle. Shake well and spray the solution on the bottom of the oven. Let the solution sit for 30 minutes before scrubbing it off with a sponge. Rinse the area with water and dry it off.
Note that some ovens have a broil element located on the bottom of the oven. This can be damaged if you use excessive amounts of water or cleaning solutions when cleaning the oven. Always refer to your owner’s manual for specific instructions on how to clean your oven.
