Step 1: Washing grills and drip trays

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Classic sponge
  • Possibly a stainless steel sponge

Before cleaning the oven itself, it is essential to remove the accessories that fill it. This is an opportunity to give them a good sponge bath.

Normally, a standard sponge and soapy water are sufficient to remove the dirt. If it persists, a stainless steel sponge may be more effective, but only on the grids as it could scratch the drip tray.

 

Step 2: Degrease the inner cavity

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
  • Baking soda
  • Wet wipe
  • Brush
  • Clay stone

Between grease splashes and food residues, the inside of the oven quickly becomes dirty. If your oven does not have an automatic cleaning mode (pyrolysis, catalysis or hydrolysis), a little elbow grease is needed.

For this, there is nothing like a mixture of bicarbonate of soda (6 spoons) and water (2 spoons). Simply apply this paste to the walls of the oven, using a brush for the most inaccessible corners. Then leave it on overnight, rub it in with a damp cloth and rinse it off.

It may also be worth investing in a clay stone, a natural multi-surface cleaner known for its effectiveness in the kitchen.

 

Step 3: Making the glass shine

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Wet wipe

While a simple wipe with a cloth is usually sufficient for the outside of the window, the inside is often subject to all kinds of splashes.

Once again, baking soda remains the indispensable cleaning ally, but this time vinegar is added to make the glass shine. To make a thick paste, use ¾ of baking soda to ¼ of vinegar. You rub it gently with a damp cloth and then rinse.
