WHENEVER you actually decide to do it, cleaning your oven can be one of the most daunting tasks ever – it’s uncomfortable to get in every nook and cranny, it’s sticky, and no one ever taught you how to properly do it.
Well, this TikTok man, who runs the account Problem Solved, showed just how to get your oven looking brand new without the use of any harsh chemicals.
REMOVE THE CRATES
The first thing you need to do is clear up your space and that means removing the crates inside the oven.
You can put them on top of a towel or inside the sink to avoid getting whatever grease is on them anywhere else.
PICK UP LARGE PARTICLES
Next, you’ll want to clear out the bigger pieces of food that may have slipped through the crates and are now laying burnt at the bottom of the oven.
You can either wipe them down or use a vacuum cleaner.
Make sure to vacuum underneath the oven, as well, by removing the bottom drawer completely.
PREP YOUR CLEANING AGENT
You’ll want to avoid any harsh chemicals that may cause irritation to your skin, eyes, or throat and opt for a more natural alternative.
Mix baking soda and water to create a thick white paste.
Using a sponge or rag, wipe the thick paste all over the oven.
You’ll want to focus on any of the dark spots in the oven itself and the door, but remember to avoid putting the paste on the coils in the back.
You can then leave it for a few hours or let it sit overnight so it can work its magic.
The paste will loosen up the grease and will actually cling to the baking soda, making it super easy to wipe down.
Once it’s time to wipe, use a little bit of water on your sponge to break down the baking soda.
