Cleaning burnt oven – easier and cheaper

To thoroughly clean a burnt-in oven, you don’t always have to spend hours scrubbing your head around in the oven at all. There are some simple home remedies that will get rid of the baked-on grime in your oven with relative ease. However, most of these home remedies take a little time. Here, we show you how to do it with simple home remedies.

Cleaning burnt-in oven: How to do it.

A burnt-in oven can be cleaned with a mixture of baking soda and water or baking soda and vinegar. Proceed as follows: Brush mixture on dirt, fill baking tray with water and place it in the oven at 90-120 degrees. Wipe off dirt after an hour of exposure.

Step by step clean the burnt oven

  • Kitchen sponge
  • brush
  • microfiber cloth
  • Mixing bowl
  • Bucket

1. mix the cleaner

For the cleaner made of baking soda, only the baking soda should be mixed with water at first. For simple dirt, the baking soda alone is also sufficient to loosen the dirt. However, really baked-on grease dirt still needs a little vinegar in the baking soda mixture.

2. apply baking soda mixture

You can even apply this mixture on top of the oven over the heating elements. Only directly on the heating elements you should not put the self-mixed cleaner. Therefore, the best way to spread the mixture evenly on the dirt is with a brush. However, some housewives swear by the yellow household sponges and like to dab the baking powder with them.

3. fill the baking tray

Now fill the baking sheet to the brim with water and leave it in the oven on about the middle rack while you heat the baking soda. The water vapor should be kept in the oven, so keep the door closed during the soaking time.

4. temperature and duration

The cleaning mixture must be left to soak in the oven at a low temperature for up to one hour. The temperature should not exceed 120 degrees and should not fall below 90 degrees. You can also put already warm water on the baking tray to shorten the heating time a little.

5. cleaning

Once the temperature inside has dropped enough for you to touch it, you should clean the greasy dirt with a microfiber cloth and plenty of water.

Tips & Tricks

Basically, any home remedy that you use with steam in a hot oven can be wiped off fairly easily afterwards. However, the combination of vinegar and baking soda is quite good and durable to apply to the dirt. Other cleaners run down during the procedure, making it much more difficult to clean the top inside the oven and the sides.
