How to clean an oven by hand: the easiest method

Ovens are one of the most common places in which people cook their food. They are also one of the areas in which dirt and grease build up quickly. If you want to keep your oven clean, read on for some tips from our professional cleaning team on how to do it quickly and easily.

One way to clean your oven is to use a self-cleaning setting. This will heat your oven up to a high temperature and cause the dirt and grease to burn off. However, not all ovens have this setting, so you may need to use another method or call a professional to do the oven cleaning for you.

If your oven does not have a self-cleaning function, you can use a cleaner specifically made for ovens. Make sure to read the instructions on the cleaner before use. Be sure to also wear gloves and goggles while cleaning the oven.

Another way to clean your oven is with a baking soda paste. Make a paste by mixing baking soda with water until it forms a thick mixture. Then, spread the paste on the inside of your oven and let it sit for several hours.

Another way to clean an oven is by using baking soda and vinegar. This is a slower process, but it is effective. Be sure to spray down the inside of the oven with vinegar first then sprinkle baking soda over top of the vinegar. Let this sit for about 30 minutes before scrubbing everything down with a brush.

Here’s a step-by-step manual how to do an oven cleaning properly with maximum efficiency:

  • Visit the nearest store and buy the following items:
    • Oven cleaning gel or oven cleaning detergent – do not forget to read carefully the products descriptions and make sure they fit your oven type
    • Or you can try using a simple mix of baking soda, vinegar and water as an oven cleaning substance.
    • Protective gloves & glasses. Do not ignore your own safety especially if you choose to clean the oven with professional products like a detergent, foam or a gel.
    • Brushes and sponges.
    • Microfiber towels.
  • Preheat your oven to its highest temperature. This will help loosen any baked-on gunk.
  • Fill a spray bottle with baking soda, vinegar and water. Spritz the vinegar-soda solution on all of the dirty surfaces inside the oven.
  • Let the vinegar-soda solution sit for a few minutes, then use a sponge or scrub brush to scrub it off. Remember to scrub gently and be careful not to scrub off the protective cover of the oven – usually found on all of the inside walls. Also be very careful with the oven glass – if you scrub it with a metal sponge you may scratch it badly and you will have to buy a new glass.
  • If there is any remaining gunk, use a toothbrush to get into all of the nooks and crannies. Again take your time with this procedure and be very careful, especially if the oven has visible heaters (usually on the top of the inside part).
  • Once everything is clean, wipe down all of the surfaces with a wet rag.


In conclusion, ovens are one of the most common places in which people cook their food. They are also one of the areas in which dirt and grease build up quickly. To avoid this, it is important to clean your oven regularly. Oven cleaning is not as easy as it seems. It may take several hours if you want to make it right. Also the oven cleaning process is delicate when it comes to ovens with visible heaters, double glasses, ventilators, etc. In addition to this keep in mind you have to buy oven cleaning products and gear. In most cases an oven cleaning by a professional cleaning company is cheaper than a do-it-yourself method.
