How to clean the oven in the best way
Have you noticed that your oven starts to get ingrained and burnt food residues that make the oven start to smell as soon as you turn it on? Maybe you want to get rid of these leftovers in a smooth and efficient way - which is also environmentally friendly? We have all the tips for how to clean your oven in the best way - quickly and without toxic ingredients!
To begin with, it is always good to read up on the type of oven you have before you start cleaning. Why, you may be wondering? Well, because there are actually ovens that have their own cleaning program where you should absolutely not use other cleaning programs as this can damage the oven inside. So review what oven you have before you start following the cleaning tips that we list below.
But if you have an oven that has a cleaning program, that is, the oven is self-cleaning, then they work in such a way that they burn the deposits in the oven that are formed after the meal. After the program has run, there will only be ash left which is easy to remove with a damp cloth. The disadvantage of this type of cleaning is that you can not use the oven for a few hours, but on the other hand you only need to press a button for the cleaning to take care of itself. What can be good to be aware of is that it will create a strong scent the cleaning process where you should preferably not be in the same room as it is running. This applies to everyone in the household, adult as well as child as pet. Also keep in mind that you may not use abrasive scouring pads or steel wool, as some ovens may be extra sensitive to this.
If you have an oven without this type of cleaning program, you can instead use environmentally friendly cleaning tips to get your oven clean again. Our first tip is to use soap- a natural detergent and water, where you mix 2 decilitres of soap with 1 decilitre of water which you then pour into a spray bottle. Then spray the inside of the oven and finally close the oven door. Set the oven to 100 degrees and let it stand for 15-20 minutes, before turning it off and allowing it to cool later. When the oven is cool again, you can use a damp cloth to remove all dirt.
Do you instead feel that you love to clean vinegar so it's fine to use vinegar here to get your oven clean. Start by pouring the vinegar into an ovenproof bowl and then place it in the oven. When the vinegar is later heated, fat and deposits will dissolve. Run the oven at 50 degrees and then let it stand for 1 hour before turning off the oven and letting it cool completely. Make sure that the oven is completely cool before opening the door and then removing the dirt with detergent and water on a sponge.
Another cleaning tip we have applies washing-up liquid is that you can take 2.5 decilitres of water and put this on the bottom of the oven. Set the oven to 60 degrees and then leave the oven for an hour as soon as the degree number has been reached. Then turn off the oven and let it cool, before soaking up the water with a non-scratching sponge and then you can easily remove the stains with a sponge with the water plus detergent. The combination of water plus heat makes the stains easier to loosen afterwards.
You may have heard that you can also clean the oven with bicarbonate or baking soda? It requires a little more of one but works at least as well. You only need to mix one of them with hot water to a batter with which you then lubricate the entire oven. Remember to have the kitchen fully ventilated and protect the floor in front of the oven with plastic. Then pour vinegar or vinegar into a spray bottle and spray over the lubricated oven, where a chemical reaction will form. When this is done, you need to wipe afterwards with a damp cloth.
Do you need to clean yours oven sink- which may be needed as this easily becomes stained by grease and food residues - there are more environmentally friendly cleaning tips to use. All you need to clean the oven door is bicarbonate and water that you can make into a thick batter, which you then spread on the glass and then let it stand for 30-60 minutes to finally dry with a damp cloth. If you have a very ingrained glass surface, you may need to use a little strong agent, where it is enough to spray vinegar over the bicarbonate. What is important to keep in mind here is to use gloves and have a well-ventilated kitchen. After the vinegar has acted on the bicarbonate, you can start by wiping with a damp cloth and then wiping with a dry cloth. And suddenly you have an oven that looks like new again!
With these tips, you get a clean oven in no time, where the cleaning methods have been both economical and environmentally friendly!
