Cleaning out your oven is one of those life events that people don’t particularly want to do and it’s not difficult to see why. The process can take time and be uncomfortable physically, which is why lots of people put off the task for a long time. However, as this can damage your oven, it’s better just to get it out of the way. With that in mind, we’ve found a few tips and tricks for oven cleaning that should hopefully make the process a lot easier for you.

  1. Self-Cleaning Functions

If your oven is a newer model, then it is possible it has some degree of self-cleaning available. The oven heats up to a high temperature and literally destroys leftover traces of food and dirt. It’s a pretty powerful tool for cleaning your oven, but it’s also a rarer feature here in the UK. You’d probably know if your oven could self-clean because it would have been a big deal when you bought it.

  • Try DIY Oven Cleaners

There’s two types of oven cleaners you can use for your oven – the store-made oven cleaners and then the ones you make yourself. It’s important to pick which one is best for you.

The problem with a store-bought model is that they can be pretty big on chemicals which might damage your oven over time. Plus, you don’t want large amounts of chemicals in the house anyway. Your best bet is usually to go for a DIY oven cleaner, because this has the best effect. If you mix together vinegar, baking soda and water, you get a solution that can tackle tough cleans but isn’t abrasive to you or to the oven.

  • Always Soak the Racks

The racks on your oven may seem unimportant, especially if you use tin foil and baking trays, but the truth is that they still get dirty like any other part of the oven. When you clean, you should pull them out and put them into soak for a few minutes before giving them a good scrub. You’ll be glad you did.

  • Hire Professionals

Now, be reasonable – we’re always an option worth discussing. Hiring a pro is the best way to get things done because none of the responsibility is on you. Instead, professional cleaners will take care of the problem and ensure that you’ve got the tools for success you need.
