Hack: Why You
Need To Try It
Ovens should be thoroughly cleaned every three months, yet countless homeowners procrastinate on this tedious chore. House Digest decided to test out one of Tik Tok’s most popular oven cleaning hacks to reveal whether it's something to try, or if it's more trouble than it's worth.
Following content creator Gia Pendergast's instructions, we mixed: 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of Dawn dish soap, and 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar. We then applied the cleaning solution using the rough end of a Sponge Daddy, which has a similar texture to the Brillo pad Pendergast used.
In the video, Pendergast said to mix the solution until it turned into a paste, only we achieved the consistency of a runny glob. Having dipped the sponge into the solution, we thoroughly applied it all over the interior of our oven, and waited about two hours for it to dry.
After loosening up the dried solution with the Sponge Daddy, we wiped down the oven with a microfiber cloth, before cleaning up the leftover residue with a warm, damp cloth. Almost all the grease, grime, and burnt pieces spotted along the oven's interior were gone, giving the appliance a refreshed look.
