Cleaning the oven glass on your oven door can be a pain. It’s easy to get streaks and spots on the glass, and it can be frustrating to try to get them off. But with the right techniques, you can clean the glass on your oven door quickly and easily.
Follow these tips and you’ll have a Streak-Free Oven Door in no time.
The best way to clean oven glass
The best way to clean oven glass is to use a special glass de-greaser cleaner or normal dish soap (which is also a degreaser) and a microfiber cloth.
First, spray the cleaner on the cloth, not directly on the glass.
Then, wipe the glass in a circular motion until it is clean. Be sure to rinse the cloth often with hot water so that you don’t spread dirt and grime.
When you’re finished, buff the glass with a dry cloth or kitchen paper/newspaper to remove any streaks.
How to Remove tough stains
If you have tough stains on your oven glass, you can use baking soda and vinegar or lemon juice.
Mix one part vinegar/lemon juice with one part water and spray it onto the stain.
Let it sit for a few minutes, (and if it’s really dirty, sprinkle baking soda on the vinegar/lemon juice and let it sit for a minute) then wipe it away with a microfiber cloth.
You may need to scrub a bit to get the stain out.
(This method can also be no one on your cleaning method list, saving you the hassle of trying other methods first)
If your oven door has tough stains that just won’t come off with cleaning solutions, you can use steam to clean it.
If you don’t have a steamer, fill a pot or kettle with water and bring to boil.
Hold the pot/kettle under the oven door so that the steam can reach the stains.
Let the steam work on the stains for a few minutes, then wipe them away with a microfiber cloth dipped in vinegar.
Dry off to prevent streaks as described above.
Prevent future stains
To prevent future stains, make sure to clean spills as soon as they happen.
When cooking, pay close attention to what is happening inside the oven so that food doesn’t boil over or drip down onto the glass door.
Wipe up any spills immediately after they happen. It will be much easier to clean them when they’re fresh.
When to call a professional
If your oven glass is extremely dirty or damaged, it’s best to call a professional cleaner.
They will have the tools and knowledge to clean the glass without damaging it.
Cleaning the oven glass on your door can be a pain, but it’s not impossible. With the right techniques and some elbow grease, you can have streak-free glass in no time. Follow these tips to get started, and don’t forget to ask for help if you need it!
