How to clean the oven from grease: a method from an experienced mom
Cleaning the oven is an asterisked task, especially when the stains are old and the grease is deeply embedded in the surface. Often, we put off cleaning the oven, making things worse.
Not always store-bought products will be able to clean baked-on grease. The Express has told us how to clean the oven effectively.
Australian cleaner and mother of two Chantelle Mila has a simple "trick" that she claims will even cope with old dirt.
Shantel shares her life on her TikTok page @mama_mila_. She advised some effective life hacks.
You need to take some baking soda and dishwashing detergent. To prepare the solution, you need the following proportions: 1 cup of baking soda to a third of a cup of dishwashing liquid.
Mix the ingredients until a thick paste forms. Then apply the mixture to the oven door using a brush, sponge, or toothbrush.
Do not wash off the paste immediately, let it sit for about 2 hours. This will soften the baked-on grease. For particularly stubborn dirt, even two hours may not be enough. In this case, repeat the procedure.
Baking soda is often recommended for cleaning various surfaces in the home. The alkaline properties of baking soda help dissolve dirt and grease.
In addition, the mineral structure of baking soda acts as a soft abrasive. Stains will come off without leaving scratches. And the main properties of dishwashing detergents are aimed at breaking down fat.
After letting the solution brew, Chantelle recommends using a scraper blade to gently remove burnt-on dirt.
Excess of mixture should be wiped off with a clean, damp cloth. Chantelle also recommends lining the oven with a reusable non-stick liner.
