“3 Keys to Cleaning Your Oven with Natural Oven Cleaner
Want to learn how to clean your oven with natural oven cleaner? In my little oven cleaning adventure, I learned a few important keys for how to clean an oven (even an insanely dirty oven) in the easiest, least complicated way possible. Here’s what you need:
- THE RIGHT PREP
This is not a spray-and-wipe job. A little preparation is required, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Basically, you want to soak the grime into submission. An overnight soaking is probably your best bet–especially if you have years of baked on grease in your oven (like me!). But for some folks a couple of hours might be enough to do the trick.
- THE RIGHT TOOLS
I found that using the right tools can turn oven cleaning into a relatively easy task. Here’s what you need to have on hand:
- Some stainless steel scouring pads for scrubbing (so you don’t have to scrub so hard).
- If your oven is really dirty, you might want to be armed with a small stainless steel scrubbing brush to really get into the cracks and crevices.
- A good pair of cleaning gloves–you don’t want oven grime in your fingernails, trust me.
- A few microfiber washcloths to wipe up the grease. (You can use paper towels for easier disposal if you’d like–I’m just not a big paper towel fan unless something is really gross.)
- THE RIGHT CLEANER
Like I said, vinegar and baking soda didn’t cut it for my oven. But I wasn’t ready to give up on finding a natural oven cleaner that actually worked (and that was actually natural–a lot of the so-called “green” and “natural” cleaners out there still carry huge warning labels about not letting the stuff touch your skin, which is not exactly my idea of natural!).
I was told Branch Basics concentrated non-toxic cleaner was totally capable of cleaning my oven with absolutely no chemicals. Supposedly the natural soap cleaner combined with plant-derived enzymes could really bust through grease. But I had my doubts.
Still, since this cleaner doesn’t come with a scary warning label, I decided it was worth a shot. I followed the instructions from the lovely ladies over at Branch Basics and let a 1:1 concentration soak in my oven overnight.” To read the entire article click here.
