Is oven cleaning something you do on regular basis or do you tend to skip this chore? I know that many people don’t like cleaning their appliances because it is too much work and they will waste a lot of time and energy on it, however, this is extremely wrong. Not cleaning your oven will not only have a negative effect on your health but on the appliance as well.
Why You Need To Clean Your Oven?
If you don’t clean your oven on regular basis, then the interior will be covered in build-up, grease, stains, burnt food, and all sorts of other impurities. Over time, these impurities will get in the way of your appliance working properly. Let me give you an example – your oven will use twice the energy to reach and maintain the temperature you have set it on because those impurities are getting in the way. This means that the appliance won’t work properly and will eventually break…
Unfortunately, the only way to ensure the performance and the long lifespan of your appliance is to clean it – there are no shortcuts. But the good news is that cleaning it is not as hard as you think it is – and I will tell you all my tips and tricks!
The Best Oven Cleaning Tips!
– How I Clean My Oven Racks?
I take the racks out of the oven then I place them in hot soapy water (I either fill my sink or my bathtub). Then add a few dryer sheets in the water. I know that it sounds weird but it works! Let them sit there for at least two hours – and then wipe the impurities.
– How I Clean The Interior Of My Oven?
Let me tell you something – you don’t need any fancy cleaners to clean your oven… you just need a few household items – vinegar and baking soda!
Sprinkle baking soda all over the interior. Then fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray it over the baking soda. Then leave both ingredients for a few hours and close the door of your appliance. They will create a fizzing – and this reaction will do all the cleaning for you!
Next, grab a sponge and scrub the interior. The vinegar and baking soda have already lifted almost all stains and grease – you just need to scrub for a few minutes to make sure everything is removed. Then, grab a cloth and wipe everything.
