Top life hacks to clean the oven

Ovens need regular cleaning; otherwise, stubborn dirt, grease, and food residue can become challenging to remove. If you prefer to avoid store-bought chemicals, you can save money with effective "home" tips.

Baking soda, vinegar, and citric acid are simple ingredients that can help eliminate old grease. OBOZREVATEL has explored how to clean even the dirtiest oven.

How to clean the oven with baking soda

Baking soda, known for its cleaning properties, can quickly and effectively remove stubborn dirt. Prepare a paste by mixing baking soda and water to a "porridge" consistency. Apply the mixture to the dirt and wait a few hours. Afterward, rinse off the remaining soda with warm water.

Will vinegar help

Vinegar, often used for cleaning various surfaces, can be applied directly to dirty areas. No need to prepare solutions or mixtures—simply leave the vinegar on for several hours and then rinse it off with water.

Life hack with citric acid

Mix lemon juice or citric acid with water and apply the solution to the dirt with a sponge. Follow the same algorithm: wait 2-3 hours and rinse with water.

"Steam bath" cleaning

Cleaning experts recommend trying "steam cleaning." Pour about 0.5 liters of water into a baking sheet, add detergent, and leave it in the oven for 30 minutes. Turn on the oven to 100 °C. The "steam bath" effect will soften and dissolve the grease faster. Afterward, wait for the oven to cool down and remove the remaining dirt with a sponge.
