How to Clean the Oven Glass
I have never found a good solution to removing the cooked-on grime on my oven glass. However last week a reader asked me the dreaded question: “Now, can someone tell me how to clean the window of my oven?”
So of course I had to find a solution! Because having oven glass that looks like this, or worse, is just not acceptable. I needed to find a solution for my reader but also for me!
After a little research I found this video on You Tube. I was extremeley skeptical because it just seemed too simple so I had to test it for myself.
All you will need for this is baking soda, water and something to mix them in.
Step 1: Pour about 1/2 cup of baking soda into a dish and slowly add water to it until it becomes a thin paste. You don’t want it to be too thick because you want the mixture to be easy to spread.
You can see mine is a little runny but it was perfect.
Step 2: Spread the baking soda mixture all over the oven glass. I ran out of baking soda so I didn’t have enough to do the entire glass surface so I just spread it over the dirtiest areas.
Step 3: Set the timer for 15 minutes. If your oven is REALLY dirty you can set it for 20 minutes to give the baking soda a little extra time to work.
Step 4: When 15 minutes has expired use a clean rag (I used a damp wash cloth) and wipe up the baking soda mixture. You will be amazed at how easily the grime just wipes right off!
I have to admit I was very skeptical about this process but it was amazing how well it worked to remove the grime cooked onto the glass!
I think the pictures speak for themselves.
What do you think? I know you want to try it now, especially because it’s SO easy! If you have a super dirty oven door I’d love it if you’d email me your before and after pictures!
