  • Dissolve a few tablets of activated charcoal in water, put the solution in the oven, turn it on for half an hour so that the liquid boils.
  • Wipe all inner surfaces with lemon juice or vinegar.

To finally wash off all the remnants of household chemicals, it is necessary to change the water up to 10 times, which is quite long and troublesome.

Therefore, before starting to wash the oven from old burnt fat, use proven methods and folk remedies.



So, here are some old ways to wash the oven.

To remove dirt in the oven with home remedies, you can use:

Baking soda. It works exceptionally well when you need to tidy up the glass part of the oven door.

  • First, wipe the dirty glass with a well-moistened coarse sponge;
  • Next, sprinkle it with a thin layer of soda;
  • Leave the whole thing for 30-40 minutes so that the soda works;
  • After that, take a wet sponge and wipe the door thoroughly.

Table vinegar. The method of its application has long been known to everyone:

  • Just apply it to the sponge and start processing all the elements of the oven;
  • Next, close the range and leave everything for 2-3 hours;
  • After this time, wipe everything well several times with a damp cloth.

Ammonia. He can remove even ancient burnt fat. Apply the solution to a rag and rub all the walls, close the door, leave overnight. In the morning, rinse everything with a weak soapy solution.

Salt. Pour it with a slide on dirt, hardening until it becomes brownish, after which we remove and wash the surface.

Grated laundry soap, soda and vinegar should be mixed in a ratio of 30/50/100 grams (do not be afraid of the bubbling reaction of the interaction of soda and vinegar).

Apply this solution to the burnt fat. Leave for a few hours, and then rinse everything well.



In order not to encounter such a time-consuming cleaning process again, you should:

  • Each time after cooking, wipe the inner walls, baking sheets and doors with a light soapy solution;
  • Cook dishes in a unique sleeve so that fatty splashes will not fall on the walls;
  • You can choose an oven with a self-cleaning function.

A few words about the “self-cleaning” oven: yes, this option is in many modern models. But, when using it, many homemakers noticed that as a result, the stove is steamed.

Stains do not disappear anywhere; they are amenable to steam treatment. The only plus from this procedure is some softening (softening) of old colours, which facilitates cleaning the oven. It is not necessary to count on a more significant result.

We hope you are convinced that it is possible to cope even with persistent and old dirt both with the help of household chemicals and folk remedies. It is much easier and more convenient for yourself not to allow this or wipe the plaque as soon as it appears.
