Cleaning the oven is one of the most hated household chores, so we are always on the lookout for helpful tips and tricks to make cleaning the oven less of a challenge. Cleaning sensation, Mrs Hinch often shares her top tips for a sparkling clean oven, so we have put them all together for you below.
Possibly the hardest area to clean is the bottom of the oven, as this area gets the brunt of food spillages. One tip Mrs Hinch continually recommends to her followers is to use oven liners. Oven liners sit in the bottom of the oven and prevent food and grime sticking to the oven. You can simply remove the liner, clean it, and return it to the oven.
We agree with Mrs Hinch’s top tip and would highly recommend using oven liners. These handy liners can be purchased from most homeware stores or online for under £10.
Soak Oven Trays in the Bath
One of Mrs Hinch’s top cleaning tips relates to the oven racks. The racks are notoriously hard to clean, however Mrs Hinch recommends soaking the racks in the bath! This is because often the oven racks are too big to soak in the kitchen sink. She recommends soaking the racks for a few hours in a combination of washing up liquid, white vinegar and warm water, to remove the grime.
Ovenclean specialists also have a fantastic solution for cleaning oven racks. As part of a professional oven clean, all removable components such as racks, doors and glass are cleaned using specialist equipment in the fully equipped Ovenclean vans. This means there is no mess in your kitchen sink, or bath – we simply deal with the grime outside of your home.
Sparkling Glass Door
Keeping the oven’s glass door clean is important, this is so you can check on your food while its cooking without the need to open the door. However, grime can quickly build-up on the glass due to food splatters. Mrs Hinch has a simple solution to oven glass cleaning, and it includes two products: white vinegar and a microfibre cloth, specifically a Minky M cloth. These cloths have been treated with anti-bacterial protection and will not scratch the glass.
Ovenclean specialists use high-quality products and tools to ensure the glass is not scratched during the clean. In some cases, the specialist will remove the oven door completely to ensure the door is sparkling clean and free from grime hidden in the seals.
Mrs Hinch’s top oven cleaning product is Elbow Grease, which she nicknames ‘Elvis’. She begins by spraying the inside of her oven with the product and then wiping it over with a Scrub Daddy.
Although Elbow Grease is a great degreasing product, unfortunately it still requires physical ‘elbow grease’. However, when using a professional oven cleaning service, no elbow grease is required. You can sit back and relax knowing your oven is in good hands.
Ovenclean’s Top Tip: When using any product on your oven or hob, avoid the temperature dials as the number decals can be wiped off very easily.
Oven Cleaning Blade
When cleaning her oven, Mrs Hinch uses a blade to clean the surface and door of the oven. As part of a deep clean, Ovenclean specialists use a similar professional oven cleaning blade to remove grime. However, these blades are best used by a professional oven cleaner. In the wrong hands a blade can cause serious damage to the oven and severely scratch the glass door.
