Oven Cleaner

Let’s face it, cleaning the oven is no ones favourite job!  So here is the easy, no chemical, no elbow grease way to do it.

(Sorry I didn’t take a before photo due to embarrassment over the state of my oven!  There was this fruit cake, it exploded….all very tragic…)


Oven being cleaned

Oven prior to ‘baking’

Place ½-¾ cup of baking soda in a bowl.

Mix to a paste with water.

Add a splash (about 2 tablespoons) of white vinegar

Liberally coat the inside of your oven using a sponge or a pastry brush.  (It should look something like the picture here.)

You can also coat your trays/roasting dishes et cetera.

Turn your oven on and bake at 100ºC for around 45 minutes.

Allow to cool.

You can use a nylon fish slice, or plastic scraper to remove the excess powder if you have a large buildup (it flakes off really easily).

Then with a bucket of fresh water simply sponge off the remaining mix.  Give it a good wipe over with water (you can add a few drops of dishwashing liquid) and you’re done!

Yippee! Clean Oven!
