How to clean the oven, natural remedies


How to clean the oven: do-it-yourself remedies to eliminate even the most stubborn encrustations from a conventional oven or microwave oven.

The oven is an appliance widely used in the kitchen, for cooking both sweet and savory dishes; if it is not kept clean, it can compromise the safety and taste of the foods we prepare.

To keep the oven in full working order it is necessary to clean it regularly: it lasts longer and wastes less energy! Furthermore, if regular cleaning is not carried out, residues left in the various cracks can come into contact with food.

On the market we find many products, more or less effective, but they are harmful to the environment! So why not resort to homemade methods, which are effective and at the same time harmless to the environment? In this regard, here how to clean the oven with natural remedies. In case of difficult encrustations it is possible to use specific products… but they are biodegradable!

In this article we will tell you how to clean the oven with natural remedies. The oven can be cleaned with natural products even in the case of difficult encrustations and burnt food that does not go away in any way!

How to clean the oven with lemon

To degrease the oven we can use lemon. This remedy is effective in case of grease and grease stains. Here's how to proceed:

  1. Take two lemons, cut them in half and rub vigorously on the inner surface of the oven
  2. Once this is done, turn on the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees
  3. After the oven has cooled down, clean using a sponge: the encrustations will come off as if by magic.

How do you clean the phono with baking soda

Another effective solution is water and bicarbonate, an excellent remedy in case of bad smells in the oven. Here's how to proceed:

  1. Dissolve 50 grams of bicarbonate in 500 ml of water in a basin
  2. Heat the oven and when it has reached a lukewarm temperature, take the bowl and with a soft sponge soaked in the solution, dab the walls
  3. Leave it on for a couple of minutes then repeat the operation
  4. Rinse only with warm water
  5. Finally dry with the microfiber cloth.

How to clean the oven, splashes

To delete sketches, here's how:

  1. Turn on the oven at 180 degrees for a few minutes: just long enough for it to become hot.
  2. Sprinkle some salt on the affected part and sprinkle a solution of vinegar and water: vinegar and water in equal parts.
  3. Finally, remove everything with a damp cloth.

How to remove difficult encrustations

In case of persistent encrustations, it is possible to use an ad hoc detergent. In this context, pay attention to your choice: most detergents on the market are very aggressive. This means that not only are they bad for your health and that of the environment, but they risk leaving equally persistent residues in the oven. With heat, these residues will end up on the food you eat.

The ideal would be to use an effective product that is organic and biodegradable (which spontaneously deteriorates in a short time). The product in question is called "Twister" by Franke. It is non-abrasive and has pros and cons. I would like to point out this product to you because it was personally tested by me for cleaning my steam oven. He managed to remove food encrustations that not even the pyrolytic function was able to eliminate!

Among the advantages I will tell you immediately that it is easy to use: just wet the sponge supplied with water and pass it on the surfaces of the oven. As I have already told you, it is an organic and natural product, free of harmful or abrasive substances. In its field it is quite versatile because it can be used on:

  • cast iron
  • shiny steel
  • brushed / satin steel
  • oxidized surfaces
  • stainless steel
  • classic steel

Among the cons: the supplied sponge becomes immediatelygray / black, so it should be washed often. The product has a fresh lemon smell, not bad when I consider that all the products I tried in the past had a terrible pungent smell.

Another disadvantage, the instructions are only in German, but as stated, the use is simple: just rub the sponge on the surface to be treated! I know that on the product sheet it is not written that it is "biodegradable" but on the purchase package it reads clearly:"Umweltfreundlich und biologisch abbaubar!"What does it mean “Ecological and biodegradable.

Before buying it I thought that another disadvantage was the price (a 125 ml jar on Amazon can be bought with 15.99 euros and free shipping costs), however I found that it has an excellent yield because it requires a very thin layer of product to clean quite large surfaces. Use little product not only for the high yield but also to make the final rinsing operation easier.

For all information, I refer you to the Amazon product sheet: Frake Paste to clean and polish.

How to eliminate bad smells in the oven

In cleaning operations, it is also necessary to eliminate bad smells, caused by previous cooking, perhaps of foods with strong aromas such as fish. Here's how to proceed:

  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees and place the orange peels in a baking tray lined with baking paper
  2. Cook for 15 minutes: instead of orange you can use an apple without peel divided into four wedges.

Alternatively, you can put stale bread soaked in white vinegar in a bowl and leave it in the oven off for one night.

How to clean the oven, useful information

The oven must be cleaned regularly, at least once a week if you use it daily.

In the case of modern ovens, in which the self-cleaning function is present, it is not to be blindly trusted: pyrolytic cleaning consumes large amounts of electricity.

Warning!
If the time has come to throw the oven away, don't forget to dispose of it properly.
