Top 5 Pro Tips for Keeping Your Oven Clean For The Upcoming Holidays

If you're like me, then the thought of cleaning your oven can be a little intimidating. I don't know where to start and what products to use (or how much time it will take).


Luckily for you, I've done all the work for you! Check out my article on keeping your oven clean with these five tips and always work on cleaning a cold oven.

1. Start by wiping the oven with a cloth and dish soap

It is important to get the racks and the oven itself wet. Wipe off any dirt, spills or food that may be on the oven with dish soap  (or washing up liquid if you live in the UK) and hot water.  Finish up by wiping down all of your surfaces with clean water and doing the same thing to the stovetop.

2. Use baking soda to get rid of any stains or burnt on food

One way of removing the stains or burnt from your oven is by using baking soda. You will need to prepare the mixture before you start cleaning. Make a paste with baking soda and water. Remove the oven racks and set aside. Then wipe the mixture all over the oven avoiding any heating elements. Leave for as long as you can but at least 12 hours. Then wipe the paste off with a wet cloth and keep in rinsing the cloth and wiping until no mixture remains.

Put the racks in a bucket with water and add a cup of vinegar, this will loosen up the dirt and grease making it easier to wipe off with a sponge. Take a green scouring pad and scrub away at the stains or burnt until they're gone.

3. For tough spills, mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle

For tougher spills, one idea is to mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the oven and then place paper towels over the top. Leave the towel on for a few minutes and then scrub off any food that have been loosened from the stain. This works because the combination of vinegar and water makes a weak, acidic solution that removes grease easily. This mixture is gentle enough to use on glass, yet does the job just as well! Be careful to avoid any seals.

4. Clean out your oven with a natural cleaner

One of the best ways to make your oven smell fresh, clean and new is by using a natural cleaner. One way to do this is by using a pot of water with lemon slices at the bottom. Boil the mixture for about 20 minutes and turn off the heat to allow it to cool down before pouring it out onto a sponge or dishcloth to clean your surfaces While you might want to.

5. Finally, for really stubborn spots that won't come off no matter what you do-hire a professional oven cleaning company!

If you don't want to worry about having a dirty oven during the holidays, contact a professional oven cleaning company like OziClean. The experts know which type of products to use and how long to let it soak on the area that needs to be cleaned. Professional cleaners will also have the right tools for any job.
