Whether you are living with friends, family, strangers, heading back to University or starting your first year, it’s pretty much inevitable that there will be disagreements about cleaning.
In a shared house, your oven will probably be used a lot, especially if you all cook separately, so it’s vital that you all do as much as possible to keep it clean!
But what can you do to avoid arguments about cleaning your oven?
Create a rota
It may be a good idea to sit down and sort out a schedule with your housemates, so that everyone takes it in turns to clean the oven. This is particularly a good idea if people are starting to get resentful about cleaning more than others!
Make sure everyone is aware of how to keep the oven clean
Some of your housemates may not be the tidiest or they may have bad cleaning habits, so it’s important to make sure that everyone knows how to keep the oven clean and realises the importance of a clean oven.

Wipe up any mess straight away
This will save you time and effort in the long-run. Make sure that everyone wipes up food spills straight away, otherwise food will get hot and become baked on the oven, making it harder to clean off.
Use products correctly
Be careful about what products you use and read instructions carefully. Many supermarket oven cleaners contain caustic soda which can be very dangerous - it’s important to know how and when to use oven cleaning products, and when not to.
