Cleansing an oven depends upon how often do you use it? If you are a regular user, scrub it once every three months or for rare use, twice a year is a must. Regularly cleaning an oven makes a good influence on your dish but, it’s not a thing that always stuck in your mind.
Self-cleaning is the easiest way but sometimes may backfire. Press the self-clean button and sit back. Your oven locks itself and raises the temperature so the heat melt and remove grease and grime. If you are cleaning after a long interval of time, better scrub it yourself. Cause those large amounts of buildup on the floor may smoke up or sometimes end up in a fire.
So if you do decide to go for the self-clean, first remove the racks and clean those yourself. The self-clean takes more than an hour depending on the oven. Don’t leave the house while it does its work, just in case anything goes wrong.
When scrubbing the oven yourself, you will need several materials.
Garb rubber cleaning gloves, safety glasses, old newspapers, damp cloth, sponge, a plastic garbage bag with a cleaning solution, and start cleaning.
You can use store-bought purchased cleaners for a cleaning solution or mixture of baking soda and vinegar or only a lemon.
Cover the floor with newspaper, put on the rubber gloves and safety glasses, take out the oven racks, apply the cleaner in the oven and oven racks (let the cleaner sit for half an hour or overnight for baking soda and vinegar mixture), wipe off the grime using a damp cloth, and throw extra wastage in a plastic bag.
While cleaning with lemon, place a bowl of water in the oven with lemon cut into halves. Heat the oven to 250 degrees and let sit for an hour. After an hour, open the oven door and let cool. Wipe the oven thoroughly while the oven is still warm.
Don’t burn your hand and next time enjoy a more delicious meal.
