Lemon and baking soda with vinegar will even cope with stubborn dirt in the oven

The oven allows you to cook not only tasty but also healthy dishes, but in the process, it gets very dirty with grease. That is why there is a whole list of chemicals on the market for cleaning it. However, it's hard to call them environmentally friendly. Meanwhile, you can prepare a safe substance that will clean a dirty oven to a shine with your own hands.

OBOZREVATEL tells you about proven recipes. They require only simple, affordable, and cheap ingredients.

Lemon for shine

Citric acid, which this citrus fruit is rich in, has excellent degreasing and cleansing properties. To reap the benefits of lemon juice in the oven, it's best to mix it with water.

Take a heat-resistant bowl, put the sliced lemon in it, and fill it with water. Next, preheat the oven to 180 degrees and put this container in it for 15 minutes. The water saturated with citric acid will begin to evaporate and act on the adhering fat. When the oven has cooled down after this treatment, the dirt can be easily washed off, and the metal parts will shine.

Baking soda and vinegar for stubborn stains

These two products together have a powerful cleaning effect. Using baking soda and vinegar not only cleans but also disinfects and deodorizes surfaces. To clean your oven with them, take

  • a little water
  • white vinegar
  • baking soda
  • a spray bottle
  • a sponge, cloth, or paper towel.

To clean the oven with baking soda and vinegar, first, remove the rack and rinse it. Then wipe the bottom of the appliance with a damp cloth. If necessary, use a metal spatula to scrape off any burnt-on grease.

Then proceed to apply the cleaning agent. In a container, mix half a cup of baking soda with a little water to make a paste. Using a clean cloth or sponge, apply the resulting product to the interior walls of the appliance, avoiding the heating zones. Leave the baking soda on for at least 2 hours to work deeply into the fat. If necessary, you can leave the baking soda paste on overnight.

Then spray the baking soda with hot water from a spray bottle and scrub off any stains with a sponge. After that, remove the remaining baking soda and generously spray vinegar diluted with water over the entire surface of the oven. Leave it on for a few minutes and then wipe it off with a damp cloth or paper towel. After that, let the oven air dry, leaving it ajar.
