Life hacks for cleaning the oven

Cleaning the oven is hardly on the list of your favorite household chores. Grease, dirt, and food residues burn when exposed to high temperatures, and it becomes very difficult to clean the surfaces.

Ovens are also one of the most difficult appliances to clean because of their hard-to-reach areas and complex grids. Experts have shared effective life hacks that will help you dissolve grease in 20 minutes.

Katarina Björkman, a specialist at Scandi in Contura, emphasized that it is important to avoid aggressive chemicals when cleaning ovens, as they come into contact with food.

Traditional eco-friendly components such as baking soda and vinegar will come in handy.

How to dissolve grease in the oven in 20 minutes: no chemicals required
  • First of all, make sure that the oven has cooled down completely. Then, remove any food residue on the racks or on the bottom of the oven.
  • Coat the bottom of the oven and the racks with baking soda and pour a small amount of vinegar on top until a foam forms that will destroy the grease.
  • The product needs time to work. After 20 minutes, wipe the surfaces with a sponge dampened with water and dry microfiber cloths.

If you don't like the pungent smell of vinegar, you can make a paste mixture of baking soda and water. Apply the mixture to the surfaces, wait 20-30 minutes, and clean the residue with a sponge or soft toothbrush.

Experts say that a combination of three potent ingredients will be most effective: baking soda, vinegar, and lemon juice. Apply the paste to the inside of the appliance, avoiding the heating elements. Leave it on overnight, scrub the most difficult stains with a sponge, and then remove the residue. Alternatively, you can use a mixture of vinegar and lemon juice by spraying it on the surface of the oven and leaving it on for 15-20 minutes.
