This life hack is special: it helps to remove fat from the oven door. You do not have to endlessly rub and then wash the stains from the glass, after spending all your reserves on cleaning the inner walls.
How to Remove Grease From the Oven Door
- Before starting to clean, lay a towel or rag under the oven door so that you do not have to wash the floor later. Cover the hot air ventilation holes with duct tape. In a spray bottle, mix table vinegar with water (1: 9) and moisten the inside of the door.
- Pour a thick layer of baking soda on the glass door.
- Spray baking soda with the vinegar solution until you get a thick paste. Leave the product to work for 10–15 minutes.
- Diligently rub all contaminated areas using a sponge or a rag.
- Do not rinse off the remaining soda with water. Otherwise, white stains will occur on the surface. Collect the product using a brush or a vacuum cleaner, then wipe the surface with dry microfiber.
- The oven is as good as new without the need to resort to heavy chemical artillery.
