Cleaning the oven with salt – this is how to do it

Stubborn encrustations like to settle in the oven. Not everyone wants to use the chemical mace right away. This is not necessary, because there are numerous home remedies that work quite well. In the step-by-step instructions, we will show you how to clean the dirty oven simply with salt.

Home remedies for the oven

Besides salt, there are several other home remedies that you can use to clean the oven more easily. Similar to the salt, baking soda works. However, this should not be used dry, but should always be mixed into a paste like mush.

Make your own spray cleaner

You can make a spray cleaner from a dishwasher tab. To do this, simply dissolve the tab in a little water. You can then spray the inside of the oven with it. However, this method is not quite as natural as cleaning with salt.

Step by step cleaning oven with salt

  • Cleaning cloth
  • Baking brush
  • Mixing bowl

1. salt the bottom

A lot of grease and crumb residues settle especially on the bottom of the oven. These are sprinkled with dry salt over a large area. Then all you have to do is turn on the oven and heat it to about 50 to 75 degrees for about 20 minutes. After that, simply wipe off the dirt with a soft damp cloth.

2. clean the sides of the oven

Of course, it’s hard to sprinkle the sides of your oven with salt. But you can mix a paste of salt and mineral water and apply it to the dirt on the sides of the oven with a pastry brush. Especially if it’s just a few splashes that stick to the sides, this solution is ideal.

Again, heat the oven to 50 to 75 degrees. After the soaking time, you can usually wipe off the stains without any problems.

If your oven has an enameled surface, you should not use salt or scouring pads. This will scratch the surface so much that you will have to clean much more often. Dirt settles particularly well in the scratches, and the interior can also rust if the surface is scratched up in this way.
