What Is The Best Oven Cleaner?
For my glass stovetop, the clear winner is a cream-based cleaner. To use, add a small amount of the cleaner on your glass top and rub in a circular motion with a dry microfiber cloth or paper towel. Then, grab a clean paper towel to remove any cleaner’s residue and buff the surface to a shine.
PRO TIP: Water should NOT be used as this would make the product less effective.
When cleaning the inside of my oven, homemade cleaning recipes have been a lifesaver.
What Is The Best Oven Cleaner?
Without a doubt, it would be to hire it out – that my friend is the easiest. The second is using one of the following methods.
Option 1: Ammonia and Water
Begin by turning on your oven to 175 degrees Fahrenheit and then shut it off.
If you have a gas stove with a pilot light, it is HIGHLY suggested to turn both the gas and pilot light off for safety reasons.
While the oven is still warm, place a small bowl of Ammonia on the top rack. Next, carefully place a large pot of boiling water on the bottom oven rack. Allow to sit overnight.
Warming up your oven will assist in cycling the air and “moving” the vapors around. As we all know, Ammonia is very strong, and those vapors will break down the caked-on debris in your oven. You can use a wet sponge with a few drops of dish soap to remove all debris the following morning.
Although I have Asthma, I have used this method several times since my exposure is minimal – only while placing and removing the bowl of Ammonia from my oven.
Option 2: Cream Of Tartar
Yup, this makes it on the list for being an odd but useful oven clean hack.
Cream of tartar is used in baking, however, it does wonders as a polisher agent. Sprinkle a layer of cream of tartar in the oven and allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes. A few passes of a sponge will reveal a shiny and happy range.
