Cleaning 🧼 Tips #1 The Oven


Someone asked me other day what I use to keep my oven racks shiny snd fresh looking.

It got me thinking that perhaps I should share some of my wise tips that I have collected over the years. I will start today with how I keep my oven shiny and fresh. It’s super quick and easy!!

Normally I don’t like using chemicals as The Karate Kid gets quite a few chest infections so we try to keep clear! At times though, we need to bite the bullet. So for my oven I use Mr Muscle cleaner. I prefer the odourless one myself but you may have another tip or idea.

Spray in the oven and leave for half an hour, wipe clean and tahdah!! One fresh oven.

I have tried the vinegar solution too but it’s too time consuming and I don’t feel it really gets that greasy grime off!!

Now for the stainless oven racks I actually pop them in the bath with my soaker. I use friend or vanish. Just fill the bath to a level that covers the racks. Add a scoop of your soaker and leave your racks there for a couple of hours. When my kids were little I used to do this overnight so I didn’t have to worry about the kids falling in the bath 😊

Again, this is easy as to do and doesn’t impact on other things you may need to do. It’s just the soaking time. After a couple of hours I bring the racks out one by one and wipe them down and the grime just wipes away from the racks easy as!! Before you know you have shiny stainless racks again. Your oven looks a million dollars 💵 when your done!!

I usually clean my oven once a term. It keeps it up to date and the racks are easier to keep clean this way. You can soak in vinegar solution too but I find that my soaker does the job perfectly!!

I am sure that you may have some wise tips to share too so please just add them in the comments below! It’s great to share!!

Let me know if you try this!! Have a fabulous day x
