What is the Best Product for Clean an Oven?


My mother-in-law is coming over and I don’t want her to see my dirty oven. The same oven I have used to cook for her soon. I am pretty sure she will notice the former and won’t comment on the later so I need to do something to clean my oven.

At the same time, I don’t have a lot of time so that thing has to work fast and preferably it needs to do most of the dirty work for me.

All I want to do is spray the oven and rinse it. Do you think that is possible?

Good news is that it is possible. There are plenty of products on the market that can do that for you. As with everything else some are better than the others.

The product I want to talk about is Mr. Clean Extra Power Magic Eraser.

What I Like About Mr. Clean EXTRA POWER Magic Eraser

Picture a brigade of maids scrubbing your house. Well, that’s what this product is – it has the power of a few maids in it but is less expensive.

It can clean up tough jobs like baked on oil, something that nothing else can scrape no matter how hard you try.

Keep in mind though since Mr. clean sponges are made for tough scrubbing they won’t last long but I guess that’s ok – you won’t have to clean your oven very often – I will tell you why a little bit later.

At the same time the sponges can be used for other purposes as well than cleaning ovens and oven tops. Like removing scuff marks on a wall for example or cleaning off ink, crayon. It can also be used for cleaning floors and counter tops as well.

However, don’t use it for bathtubs or dishes or you would be disappointed.

How to Clean Your Oven Naturally?

Think about that. People have used ovens for ages and they have definitely had a way to clean them. What I am about to do is to share one of these methods with you using a product everyone should have in their home. I am talking about.

Arm and Hammer Washing Soda for Natural Cleaning

Here is how people use soda to cleaning their ovens and oven tops.

1. Make a thin paste of baking soda and water. Keep in mind that it shouldn’t be too think nor too runny. If it helps – a thickness of pancake batter is what you are aiming for.

2. Spread the paste on the sides and bottom of the oven

3. Wipe the oven clean after 15-20 minutes. If there are tough dips that can’t be removed I would recommend using a plastic spatula or an Arm & Hammer toothpaste and a toothbrush.

Keep in mind that the soda paste can be used for cleaning the glass of the oven as well and the oven top.

No matter what method you are going to use to clean the oven keep in mind that you will need heavy-duty gloves.

How to Prevent Oven from getting Dirty

Once the cleaning is over I am pretty sure you tell yourself that from now on you will be cleaning your oven more often, right?

However, we both know it won’t happen. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I found a product called non-sticking oven liner a while ago.

Here is what I like about you and why I think you should get it:

1. Spills won’t be accumulating anymore

2. Cleaning the liner is easy (just soap and water) so no more stuck-ons on your oven

3. Can be cut and used in a microwave
