Problem: Hi Tia. What is the best way you recommend to clean the oven?
Tip from Tia:
Hi, thank you for your question. The best most natural way is, letting the oven do it’s own cleaning setting. It’s better than using any chemicals and then, sticking your head in to inhale them all.
The cleaning setting on the oven is high, high temperatures, that will burn off all the grime, without causing any harm. The door should lock, either automatically or manually. (Know how to work your oven before cleaning.) The timer runs for several hours, but can be canceled usually at any time.
The hardest part of letting the oven do the work is, the smell. The smell can be yucky, depending on how dirty the oven is. Cleaning it more frequently, like seasonally, can reduce that smell.
And, another great tip while letting the oven self clean is, put an old candle that still has wax but, doesn’t burn anymore, on top of the oven. The scented wax will melt from the heat and, give a delicate aroma to help with the smell. And, on a plate or paper towel, put stale bread on the counter next to the oven. The stale bread will help absorb the odors as well.
