Cleaning the inside of an oven can be a daunting task, especially if it hasn’t been cleaned in a while. However, it is important to keep your oven clean not only for hygiene reasons but also to ensure that it functions properly. Here are some tips on how to clean the inside of your oven safely:
First, prepare your cleaning solution. You can make a cleaning solution by mixing baking soda and water to create a paste. Alternatively, you can use a commercial oven cleaner, but make sure to follow the instructions on the label. Take out any removable accessories such as racks, trays, and knobs. Wash them separately using warm soapy water.
Next, apply the cleaning solution generously to the inside of the oven, making sure to cover all areas, including the sides and the door. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. After this time, use a sponge or a scrub brush to scrub the inside of the oven. If there are stubborn stains, use a plastic scraper or a nylon brush to remove them.
Finally, use a damp cloth to wipe away the cleaning solution and any debris. Rinse the inside of the oven with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.
