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 to do in the kitchen, and removing that sticky grease on oven walls is like playing Sudoku on expert level. We try all chemical and non-chemical combination, but it seems impossible to get rid of that grease. I’m not a chemical-user fan because there are other options to remove dirt without harming my health, even if chemicals may remove grease quickly.
I found 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, then turn on the oven and put the pot inside. Leave the mix boil inside the oven on low heat to release steam. Check from time to time to avoid the complete water evaporation.
It’s best if you add water gradually so it can 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 heat and leave the oven with the door closed for 1-2 hours, allowing grease to soften.Now you can remove that sticky dirt effortlessly.
