Oven Cleaning Advice from the Experts in Bow 29 April 2015

The kitchen is typically the busiest room in most homes in Bow. Cooking can be a messy business. Food and liquid spills are an inevitable side effect of food preparation. Kitchen cleaning is an essential hygienic exercise. One aspect of this cleaning procedure that no-one relishes oven cleaning. There are plenty of suggestions online to make this chore less time consuming. Simple solutions can make it less of a chore to get your oven clean and to keep it that way in future.


1.    Many culinary processes in your home in the E3 can cause hot liquids to overflow. Casseroles and pasta bakes often bubble over. You can protect the bottom oven tray and shelves by placing one or two layers of aluminium foil onto the rack below the dish. Never put foil sheets on the base of the oven’s interior as they could catch fire.


2.    An electric oven can be cleaned easily. The first step is to switch the heat up to 65 degrees Centigrade (150 degrees Fahrenheit). Next, pour half a cup of ammonia into a small oven-proof bowl and put it on the highest shelf of the oven. Fill a large pan with boiling water and place it on the lowest shelf. Close the oven and leave it on overnight. In the morning, allow it to cool, remove the bowl and pan, then use the ammonia mixed with a little washing-up liquid and 2 pints of warm water to wipe down the interior surfaces. Even the most baked-on dirt and grease will come away effortlessly from your oven in Bow, E3.


3.    Oven racks can be placed on an old towel and soaked in a tub full of warm water infused with half a cupful of ammonia. After 15 minutes the racks can be rinsed and a wipe over will bring them back to their shiny best. The ammonia can also clean the bath at the same time.


4.    Self-cleaning ovens will leave behind a residue of ash after performing the cleaning cycle. This can be mopped up quickly, cheaply and simply with some moist sheets of old newspaper, crumpled and rolled up.


5.    Salt is a readily available alternative to many expensive oven cleaners. Throw some salt straight onto anywhere that food has boiled over. The salt will keep the spill in a liquid state, making clearing it up a mere matter of wiping up the liquid when the oven has safely cooled down. Adding a little cinnamon to the salt will fill your kitchen in the E3 area with a lovely aroma.


6.    Vinegar is another vital ingredient in your kitchen cleaning arsenal. Undiluted white vinegar on a sponge will quickly cut through greasy residues from frying. Soften up baked-in grease with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of sugar and a cupful of apple cider vinegar. A weekly wipe over with a rag soaked in strong white vinegar will prevent grease from building up in an oven.


7.    Make regular oven cleaning a part of the overall kitchen hygiene maintenance scheme to maintain your house in Bow clean and tidy and fit to welcome guests at any time.
