I'm not entirely sure why, but cleaning the oven is up there with cleaning the shower and ironing when it comes to the most disliked cleaning chores. It shouldn't be, because it's not that hard, especially when you use this amazing MOO oven cleaner because it really works!
It lifts that gunk and grease right off the floor, melts it off the walls and the roof - oh my, the hardest part of the oven to clean is a breeze. Just spread it on, let it sit and wipe it off. You will be amazed at just how easy it is to get your oven clean, really clean, without the use of those horrible, dangerous chemical cleaners.
You don't need to wear rubber gloves with this mixture. You don't need to put newspapers under the oven door to catch drips with this mixture. Heck, you can even let the kids paint it on if you want to!
Let it sit, overnight really is best if you can, then just wipe it out. You'll love seeing how it cleans, even really dirty ovens. And for those really, really dirty ovens, just use a little elbow grease and one of my favourite scourers.
You will need:
3 tbsp dishwashing liquid (full strength for this, not diluted for dishes)
1½ cups bicarbonate soda
2 tbsp table salt
¼ cup white vinegar
Step 1. Mix the dishwashing detergent, bicarb soda and salt in a mixing bowl, then slowly pour in the vinegar, stirring as it fizzes, to make a paste. The paste should be the consistency of icing and able to be spread easily with a pastry brush. If it is too thick, add a little water and stir well.
Step 2. Take the racks out of your oven and spread the paste over the roof, walls and floor. Put the racks back in and paint the paste over them. I have a 5cm paint brush that makes this easy and quick. Use all the mixture and make sure you've completely covered all the interior and racks. For best results let sit overnight, but a minimum of 6 hours.
Step 3. To clean wipe over with a damp cloth, rinsing well between wipes. When all the gunk has been wiped off, rinse a clean cloth in vinegar and wipe over to remove the last of the paste residue.
