How to Deep Clean Your Oven in 5 Easy Steps

Cleaning your oven thoroughly can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! With just a few simple steps and some basic supplies, you can have your oven looking brand new again. Here is how to deep clean your oven in just 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Remove Everything from the Oven

The first thing you need to do is remove all racks, pans, aluminum foil or anything else from inside the oven. Having a completely empty oven will allow you to access and clean all surfaces much easier.

Place all removable parts in your sink or on your countertop to clean separately later. ** Make sure the oven is completely cool before starting to clean** – this safety step prevents burns.

Step 2: Use a Degreaser

Spray an oven degreaser like Easy-Off or Goo Gone all over interior oven surfaces. Avoid spraying near any electronic display areas.

Make sure to coat the entire interior sides, back, top, bottom, door, and don’t forget the glass window. Let the degreaser sit for 5-10 minutes before wiping – this gives it time to penetrate and dissolve grease and grime.

Pro Tip: For extra grimy ovens, let the degreaser sit overnight before wiping clean.

Step 3: Scrub and Wipe Away Grease

After letting the degreaser sit, it’s time to start scrubbing. Use a damp cloth or abrasive sponge to wipe down all interior oven surfaces, removing all the grime and grease.

Make sure to scrub the door frame and window thoroughly – these areas collect a lot of grease. The degreaser will have loosened up most of the mess, making it easier to clean by scrubbing.

Go over the entire oven interior multiple times until all surfaces are completely clean. Use a toothbrush to get into small crevices if needed.

Step 4: Clean Racks and Accessories

Place oven racks and any accessories like roasting pans into your sink or tub. Spray or soak them in degreaser and let sit 5-10 minutes before scrubbing clean with a sponge or steel wool.

Rinse thoroughly and dry completely before replacing in the oven.

Step 5: Disinfect and Polish

With the oven fully wiped out, spray the interior with an oven cleaner or disinfectant. These products will sanitize the oven and leave behind a clean, fresh scent.

Use a clean dry cloth to polish and buff all surfaces – this helps restore your oven’s shine.

Your oven should now look brand new and sparkly clean! Enjoy how clean it looks before it starts getting dirty again.

Pro Tip: Going forward, try lining the bottom of your oven with aluminum foil or a baking sheet liner to catch any drips and make cleaning easier.

Following these simple steps, you can deep clean your oven in just about an hour or so. With the right products and some scrubbing effort, you can eliminate all that caked on grease and grime. Enjoy your clean oven!
