Steps to follow when cleaning your oven

To clean your oven, follow these steps:

1. Check the manufacturer’s instructions: Before cleaning your oven, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or manual for any specific cleaning recommendations or restrictions for your particular oven model.

2. Gather supplies: You’ll need oven cleaner (either store-bought or homemade), gloves, a scrub brush or sponge, a damp cloth, baking soda (optional), and vinegar (optional).

3. Remove oven racks: Take out the oven racks and set them aside. If they have stubborn stains or grease, you can clean them separately using warm, soapy water or by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

4. Pre-clean the oven: Scrape off any loose debris or food particles from the oven walls, floor, and door using a plastic spatula or scraper. Be gentle to avoid damaging the surfaces.

5. Apply the oven cleaner: Follow the instructions on the oven cleaner product for application. Spray or spread the cleaner on the interior surfaces of the oven, focusing on areas with heavy grease or stains. Avoid applying the cleaner to heating elements or other sensitive parts.

6. Let the cleaner sit: Allow the oven cleaner to sit for the recommended time specified on the product instructions. This allows the cleaner to penetrate and loosen the grime.

7. Scrub the interior: Put on gloves to protect your hands, then use a scrub brush or sponge to scrub the interior surfaces of the oven, including the walls, floor, and door. Apply some elbow grease to remove the loosened grease and stains. For stubborn spots, you can create a paste using baking soda and a small amount of water and gently scrub the areas.

8. Wipe down the interior: Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe away the cleaner and any remaining residue from the oven surfaces. Rinse the cloth or sponge frequently and continue wiping until the interior is clean.

9. Clean the oven door: Pay special attention to cleaning the oven door, as it can accumulate grease and grime. Wipe it thoroughly with a damp cloth or sponge.

10. Clean the oven exterior: Don’t forget to clean the exterior surfaces of the oven, including the control panel and knobs. Use a damp cloth or sponge and mild detergent to wipe away any spills or stains.

11. Reinstall the oven racks: Once the oven is completely dry, place the cleaned oven racks back inside.

If you prefer a natural cleaning method, you can substitute the oven cleaner with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda on the interior surfaces, spray or mist vinegar on top, and let it fizz for a few minutes. Then, scrub and wipe the surfaces clean.

Remember to follow safety precautions and ventilation recommendations provided by the oven cleaner or homemade cleaning method you choose.
