    Default Tips on oven cleaning!

    Anyone have any? It's an electric oven with the electric heat bars at the bottom. How do you get around that? Any super cleaning products that arn't too much hard work?

    I use Easy Off Oven. It is great. Spray it on, 30 mins later a damp sponge and some paper towel and you have a clean oven. No scrubbing.

    I find bicarb works best. Just mix a bit up in a spray bottle with some water. Spray it all over the oven. When the oven heats up the bicarb breaks off the walls of the oven and takes all the gross stuff with it.

    If your oven isn't too bad you can just do this each time you use it. I had a really feral oven when i moved into the place i'm in now and it took a fair few attempts to get it up to an ok standard. I tried the feral/toxic easy off bam oven cleaner and even that didn't compare to good old bi-carb.

    this seems to work ok. just make sure it doesnt get on your skin. my daughter (she was 17 at athe time) got this on her leg and it burnt to the bone within seconds. she had to have burn treatment for months afterwards and has a nasty scar. it is dangerous stuff.

    Put a cup of cloudy ammonia in your oven overnight and everything will wipe off the next day

    Yep! Same with my mum - she burnt a hole in her foot from one drop of the stuff!

    I use the bicarb spray, with a bicarb paste for tough spots. Works a charm!
