Steam cleaning is the best way to remove grease out of any kitchen appliance, especially that dirty oven. I think everyone agrees that cleaning the oven is the hardest and dirtiest task you can do, and removing that sticky grease on oven walls is like playing Sudoku. You try all chemical and non-chemical combination, and sometimes it seems impossible to get rid of the grease. But there is a solution in for everything, especially when we talk about cleaning. I’m not a chemical-user fan because there are other options in getting rid of dirt, without harming my health, even if chemicals remove grease quickly.
And I have the perfect solution to clean the oven while resting! Sounds tempting? Well, you should know that steam has super-powers to remove any inch of grease.
Use the steam force to clean the oven
- a pot with water
- 2 or 3 cups of ammonia
Fill half a pot with water and the ammonia, and then turn on the oven and put the pot inside. Leave the water to boil inside the oven on low heat to release steam. Check from time to time for the water not to evaporate.
It’s best if you add water gradually for the water to produce steam for 1 hour.
Hot steam will soften the grease deposited on the oven grill, on the glass door and from each hard-to-clean corner.
After the water has evaporated almost completely, turn off the fire and leave the oven with the door closed (1-2 hours) for the dirt to soften.
