‘The best’ solution to clean a ‘greasy stained’ oven ‘without chemicals’

Cleaning hack: Mum reveals how she gets grease off oven

Traditional oven cleaners may be dangerous to the skin, eyes and respiratory system. 

In fact, they can cause chemical burns with skin contact and even damage the lungs permanently if the fumes are inhaled.

After experimenting with many natural options, cleaning fans have taken to social media to share which is the most effective.

Posting anonymously to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips and Tricks Facebook page, one group member asked: “Hi, does anyone have advice on what can remove these greasy stains from the bottom of my oven? 

“I’ve tried oven pride and left for the time suggested but it didn’t even touch it. So what can I use instead?”

The group member also shared two pictures of the state of their oven in which they showed the oven racks and bottom of the appliance to be filthy.

The post received over 100 comments, with the majority suggesting that a combination of baking soda, white vinegar and washing up liquid be used.

Lucia Maca said: “Bicarbonate of soda, white vinegar and washing up liquid, then leave it to soak for a few minutes before wiping away.”

Sue Rudd wrote: “I did my greasy stained oven last night with washing up liquid, bicarbonate of soda and a touch of white vinegar.

“Mix them into a paste and dab on. I left mine overnight and it worked a treat.”

Jane Ferner said: “Fairy liquid, baking soda and white vinegar is what I use to clean ovens and that is what I think works in thew best way to remove stubborn marks.”

Ann Arnall commented: “Get bicarbonate of soda, washing up liquid and white vinegar and mix to paste spread all over the oven. Leave for a few hours or longer, then wipe off.”

One woman suggested turning the oven on when applying this combination of baking soda, white vinegar and washing up liquid.

Trina Horney-Corbett instructed: “Warm the oven and soak with vinegar, washing up liquid and bicarbonate of soda.”

In response to Trina, Kristi Karsjens said: “I’ve done this. It is the best way to clean an oven without any chemicals or fumes.”

Trina added: “Vinegar and bicarbonate of soda are excellent for most cooked-on stuff. Washing up liquid is probably the best degreaser.”

When asked for what temperature the oven needs to be set for, Trina said: “Just warm it. 80 to 100 degrees. Not too hot. Then turn the oven off and leave it to cool while it soaks in the mixture.”
