Each housewife uses the oven to prepare various dishes. Grease and dirt gradually accumulate on the walls and, sooner or later, begin to smoke.

Each housewife uses the oven to prepare various dishes. Grease and dirt gradually accumulate on the walls and, sooner or later, begin to smoke. And, according to the law of meanness, this will happen at the moment when you are going to put something into it.


Therefore, cleaning the oven, although an unpleasant procedure, is simply necessary. And you can't put it off every time.

First of all, with any type of cleaning, the oven must be heated to about 50 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove all trays and racks from the oven.

Do not apply cleaning agents to the fan and heating elements.

Whichever method you choose, be sure to use rubber gloves to protect your hands.

So, how easy and quick to clean the oven?

Method 1: baking soda and vinegar


Prepare a paste of vinegar and soda in a ratio of 1:2. Then add some water and dish soap to the mixture. Mix everything and apply liberally this mixture on the walls of the oven. Scrub with a sponge and leave for a few hours.

After a few hours, remove all the soda with grease and dirt with a damp cloth. You can use a silicone spatula.

Then sprinkle with vinegar in those places where soda with fat remains. The vinegar will react with the baking soda and a soft foam will appear, which you can simply wipe.

Method 2: water and ammonia


Preheat the oven to a hot state, to about 70-80 degrees. Pour boiling water into one bowl and put it in the oven. Pour ammonia into another bowl and place higher on the wire rack. Use metal bowls.

Close the oven and leave it like this all night. In the morning, pour a little warm water and dishwashing detergent into the ammonia. Wash the oven with this solution.

3 way: citric acid


This method is suitable for lightly soiled ovens.

If the oven grates also need cleaning, then leave them inside.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. While it is heating, pour some water on a baking sheet and dissolve 20 grams of citric acid in it.

Place a baking sheet in the preheated oven on the bottom shelf and wait for the water to boil in it. Turn off the heat and leave it like this for 30-40 minutes.

Then wipe the oven with the rough side of the sponge and rinse with water.

4 way: salt and carbonic acid

Take 1/2 liter of water and dissolve 1 kilogram of salt in it. Add some carbonic acid. Put the solution on the bottom of the oven in a metal bowl and heat it to 150 degrees.

Leave the solution in the oven until it cools completely. Then simply wash the oven with detergent.

5 way: chemicals


Store-bought chemicals work well, but they are very toxic. To work with them, open a window and put on gloves.

Treat all surfaces of the oven with gel and leave to stand for 20-30 minutes. Active reagents simply corrode grease and all impurities. Then simply rinse all surfaces thoroughly with water. Thoroughly clean all surfaces from the remnants of the gel, otherwise, when heated, it will burn and transfer its unpleasant odor to the dishes being prepared.

In hard-to-reach places, you can use the spray.

To clean the oven, do not get carried away with dry powders and hard brushes. They will scratch the surface and rust will begin to appear in these places.

And yet, in order not to suffer with cleaning the oven from strong pollution, it is best not to start it and remove the remnants of fat and splashes from cooking food in a timely manner. When cooking, use foil, a lid or baking sleeves.

Let this article help you effectively deal with all the pollution and the oven only pleases you with delicious and mouth-watering dishes!
