Cleaning the Oven with Bicarbonate of Soda

How to clean your oven with Bicarbonate of Soda.

Not just ideal for making mouth-watering creations rise in your oven, did you know that bicarbonate of soda can also be used to help clean it, too?! That’s right; this common kitchen ingredient is brilliant at shifting greasy marks and absorbing nasty smells, plus it’ll make short work of any food that’s stubbornly stuck on to your oven shelves… If you’re a regular baker or love making tasty meals in your oven, you’ll know just how fast it can become grimy! Whether it’s a sauce that’s bubbled over or simply a build-up of oil on the inside of the door, these large yet essential appliances get dirty very quickly and can often seem like an epic task to clean. There are also those unpleasant odours of stale or burnt on food to consider which, unfortunately, only get worse over time… Luckily, deep cleaning an oven with bicarbonate of soda is an easy and very affordable solution as, chances are, you’ve already got a tub of it stashed away in your cupboard! What’s more, bicarb won’t leave your kitchen with a horrible chemical smell next time you preheat your oven as it’s non-toxic.

After cleaning the oven, brush the inside with a light Bicarbonate of Soda and water paste. When you next clean the oven the dirt will come away easily.
