How to Complete a Deep Oven Clean

With March around the corner, many of us are starting to think of spring cleaning. If you’re finally ready to tackle your oven, here is a handy blog to help you get started.


You’ll need to begin by choosing your cleaning product. With so many off the shelf solutions, it can be hard to decide. Check out our previous blog The Best UK Oven Cleaners to help you choose one. Or, you can make a Fantastic Homemade Oven Cleaner, using all natural products.

We always recommend no added caustic, or caustic free products. These are often safer to use and just as effective as chemical products. If you do choose to use a chemical-based product, you should ensure the room is well ventilated while you are using them.


  1. Before you begin cleaning, to keep yourself safe, check that your oven is cool and switched off
  2. Protect any elements that you can see. It is important not to get any cleaning product on these!
  3. Remove any racks inside your oven, and leave them to soak (as per the instructions on the product you have chosen to use)
  4. Start cleaning inside your oven. You should start with the corners, and hard to reach areas, before moving onto the rest of the oven.
  5. Leave the product to do its magic! Some only need hours, whereas some will need to be left overnight.
  6. Wipe down your oven with clean soapy water. Be sure to change your cloth and water as and when it gets dirty, so you are not pushing dirty water around your clean oven.
  7. If there are any intricate areas, use a toothbrush to get in there
  8. Remove the glass from your door, and thoroughly clean.
  9. Re-assemble your door and you’re done!
