How is it possible to eliminate excess fat and scale residues that accumulate in the oven?Today on sale we find various products for cleaning the oven, but they are not always the best solution. They usually contain toxic chemicals and sometimes do not guarantee optimal cleaning like other cleaning methods do. An excellent option for good oven hygiene is to use natural products. We will discover some togetherdo it yourself remediesand bio products useful to thoroughly clean the oven.
How to degrease the oven with natural remedies
Natural products are an excellent alternative for domestic cleaning as they effectively eliminate grease and dirt, as well as respect the environment without polluting it. In this regard we illustrate how to degrease the oven with natural ingredients readily available at home.
- Salt for cleaning the oven
We are used to associating the use of salt in the kitchen to flavor dishes. Yet, this cheap and easy to find product can be very useful for disinfecting and cleaning the oven in a natural way. Here's how to use salt to clean the oven.
Pour ½ liter of water and 250 grams of salt into a bowl and mix. Distribute this mixture on the walls of the oven, especially on the areas where there are grease stains or food residues.
Let the mixture act for 15 to 20 minutes and remove it with the help of a damp sponge.
How to eliminate bad smells from the oven
Perhaps, even after cleaning the oven in this way, odors will remain. To eliminate these unpleasant odors, mix ½ liter of white wine vinegar and 250 grams of salt. Let the salt dissolve and transfer the liquid to a bottle with a nebulizer. Spray the product on the oven walls and let it act for a few minutes. Finally, remove the residues with a damp sponge.
- The lemon sanitize the oven
Lemon is a product with antibacterial and antiseptic properties effective in eliminating the fat and microorganisms that accumulate inside the oven when it is dirty. The pleasant aroma of lemon also allows you to eliminate bad odors.
For the procedure just cut two lemons in half and squeeze them to obtain the juice. Next, transfer the juice to a saucepan and put it in the oven. Turn on the oven at 250 ° for 30 minutes. Once the half hour has passed, remove the saucepan and clean the oven walls with a cloth.
- The vinegar and baking soda to clean the oven
Apple cider vinegar is another product par excellence for cleaning the house. When combined with baking soda, vinegar enhances its properties and will guarantee remarkable results.
For preparation, just mix a good amount of apple cider vinegar with baking soda and store everything in a bottle equipped with a nebulizer.
Subsequently, spray the product on all the walls of the oven and set at a temperature of 120 ° for 10 minutes. Then, let the oven cool and remove the grease and dirt with a damp sponge.
How to remove difficult encrustations
THE remediesjust described are perfect for removing grease and grease stains in the oven. However, when these stains have been present for a long time to turn into encrustations, the remedies described may not be enough. In case of encrustations persistent you can use a specific remedy.
In this context, pay attention to your choice because if you go to the supermarket, most of the detergents on the market are very aggressive, toxic to human health and the environment. This means that not only are they bad for your health and that of the environment, but they risk leaving equally persistent residues in the oven. With heat, these residues will end up on the food you eat.
The ideal would be to use an effective product that is organic and biodegradable (which spontaneously deteriorates in a short time). Speaking of natural products for cleaning the oven, I can't help but recommend a paste cleaner from Franke. It is non-abrasive and has pros and cons.
I would like to point out this product to you because it was personally tested by me for cleaning my steam oven. He managed to remove food encrustations that not even the pyrolytic function was able to eliminate!
Among the advantages I tell you right away that it is easy to use: just wet the sponge supplied with water and pass it on the surfaces of the oven. As I have already told you, it is an organic and natural product, free of harmful or abrasive substances. In its field it is quite versatile because it can be used on:
- cast iron
- shiny steel
- brushed / satin steel
- oxidized surfaces
- stainless steel
- classic steel
Among the cons: the supplied sponge becomes immediatelygray / black, so it should be washed often. The product has a fresh lemon smell, not bad when I consider that all the products tried in the past had a terrible pungent smell.
Another disadvantage, the instructions are only in German, but as stated, the use is simple: just rub the sponge on the surface to be treated! I know that on the product sheet it is not written that it is "biodegradable" but on the purchase package it reads clearly:"Umweltfreundlich und biologisch abbaubar!"What does it mean “Ecological and biodegradable“.
Before buying it I thought that another disadvantage was the price (a 125 ml jar on Amazon can be bought with 15.99 euros and free shipping costs), however I found that it has an excellent yield because it requires a very thin layer of product to clean quite large surfaces. Use little product not only for the high yield but also to make the final rinsing operation easier.
For all information, I refer you to the Amazon product sheet: Frake Paste for cleaning and polishing.
