The Effortless & Natural Way To Get Your Oven Sparkling Clean
Scrubbing away the baked-on grime in your oven can be a daunting task. Luckily, with the help of vinegar and steam, you can easily remove food residue without harming your oven.
The steam helps soften any built-up gunk, allowing vinegar’s acidic content to then break down grease and neutralize odors while removing the need for harsh chemical cleaners.
First, use a damp cloth to wipe away any loose food bits, then remove the racks. In an oven-safe bowl, mix ½ cup white vinegar with water before placing it inside the oven.
Let your oven fill with steam for 30 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, spray the walls with the vinegar and water solution to wipe away any remaining grease and grime.
If you have particularly stubborn stains, create a baking soda and vinegar paste to apply to the area for about 15 to 20 minutes before wiping it away with a damp cloth.
