Clean Household Kitchen Oven a Smarter Way

Cleaning your oven doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore. With the use of ammonia and boiling water you can have a spot free oven without the hard scrubbing and harsh chemicals that typically go hand in hand with oven cleaning.

Some precautions before your begin, if your oven is gas, turn the pilot light and gas off prior to cleaning. Also, never mix ammonia with any other chemical cleaning agent or bleach. This will create harmful fumes.

This process is best performed at night before bed. This allows the ammonia to work overnight to release the thick tough grease in your oven. In the morning you can wipe your oven clean in no time. To begin, heat your oven to 150 degrees F.

While the oven is preheating, boil a pot of water on the stove. Once the oven is ready, fill a baking dish with 1 cup of ammonia. Turn the oven off and place the baking dish on the top rack. Next place the boiled water on the bottom shelf. Close the door and let it sit for at least a few hours.

After the ammonia and water have been sitting, remove and dump the water, but save the ammonia. Remove the racks as well and leave the door open for about 15 minutes to air out. In the meantime, add a quart of water to the ammonia along with a tablespoon of dish soap. With a sponge wipe the sides, top, and bottom of your oven with ease. Even wipe clean the racks with the same mixture. And there you have it, a clean oven without the tough work and harsh chemicals.
