You probably use your oven several times a week, so it’s essential to keep it tidy—especially since it’s easy for food to spill over the edge and bake onto the floor and generate a lot of smoke, explains Sean Parry, founder of Neat Services.
‘If the spillage isn’t cleaned after cooking, repeated use of the oven will further bake on the burnt food, making the problem worse and worse,’ he says.
For example, here’s how to clean your oven: Remove the racks and then mix two to three tablespoons of water with baking soda until you get a paste; coat the inside of your oven and let it sit for a bit (even overnight), and then wipe it down.
Finish the job by spraying on some vinegar (it will foam a bit where it comes into contact with baking soda) and scrubbing the stubborn spots.
And don’t forget to clean the racks, too. Some ovens have a self clean setting, but make sure you read these 9 things to know before using your self clean oven, first. Read on fore more!
