My oven was in need of a serious cleaning. I was guilty of procrastinating. Fortunately, I do have a self-cleaning oven, but I have always been dissatisfied with the results of the oven glass door. I’ve used Easy Off with its terrible fumes and non-scratch scouring pads, but never totally happy. There was always a few pesty spots left on my door! My husband and I use the oven a lot, so I didn’t have the expectation of it looking brand new. After all, my oven is five-years-old, so I turned to my new BFF, the internet, for advice. I was almost ready to make a purchase on Amazon.com for a rather pricy product that got pretty decent reviews, when I found this YouTube video, How to Clean the Oven Door the Easy Way, by Real Mom Talk. So I proceeded to my local Home Depot store to buy a razor with a handle. What did I have to lose, but a few dollars and some time?
As you can see by the photos below, the glass oven was dirty with burned on grease…not pretty! I added a little water to the area I was cleaning and gently scraped the grease off. The water helps to prevent scratching the glass. After I was done with this process, I was pretty happy. There were just a few tiny spots where I couldn’t get the grease off. Then I proceeded to self-clean the oven for four hours.After the oven cooled down and I wiped off the powdery residue from the cleaning process, I was pleasantly surprised to see the few tiny spots were gone! My oven glass door sparkled without the use of chemicals!
