To cook different dishes in the oven is a pleasure – put out the necessary temperature, turned on the timer and went to do other things. Do not stand over the dish for hours and constantly turn it around so it does not burn out. All this is wonderful and wonderful, but all the charms of this method fade against the background of the forthcoming cleaning of the inside of the oven. Splashes of fat, dark brown spots that are already tightly adhered to the walls and fumes that appears in the cooking process – all these “charms”, unfortunately, are inevitable. Of course, we, like all normal people, always try to delay cleaning under various pretexts, and the fat in the meantime accumulates and becomes invincible. We will try to help you in this difficult matter and offer several ways to clean the oven from fat and carbon in the home by available means.
MEANS THAT HAVE ANSWERED WITH NON-SOLID POLLUTION
On the Internet, you can find many ways and tips for cleaning the oven, sometimes completely unexpected or too easy, and in the comments under the entries, you can read a lot of angry responses that the methods are ineffective or completely useless. All this does not happen because the people’s methods are really powerless, but because few people warn that not all of them are subject to medium and complex pollution. We decided to list the methods of cleaning, indicating with what degree of carbon can really handle different solutions. Let’s start with the means to combat light pollution.
Absolutely any model of the oven or a conventional oven can be cleaned with an ordinary steam. Some ovens have a special groove on the bottom, into which it is necessary to pour water. If it is not, a normal deep pan or heat-resistant dishes will do. Pour water, not reaching the edge of the container about 1 cm, turn on the oven at a low temperature (100-150 ° C) and let the water evaporate. After this, remove the residues of grease and carbon deposits with a damp cloth. Do this best until the inside surface of the oven is completely cold. Be careful when opening the oven door, otherwise you may get burns. This method is best used immediately after cooking, when the fat does not have time to harden and still has a soft consistency. It takes a little time, but it takes much less to clean.
A solution of citric acid or lemon juice will perfectly cope with fresh traces of cooking. You only need a soft sponge and the solution itself. Many argue that natural lemon juice is more effective than the analogue in the form of a powder. To clean the entire cupboard, you will have enough juice of one lemon. Applying a liquid with a sponge will not be very convenient, much faster and more efficiently you can do this using an atomizer. Spray problem areas and give acid a little time. As you know, acids effectively dissolve fat or at least make it much softer. After a while, wipe the surface with a soft sponge. If the juice is left, moisten the sponge. For best results, it is advised to apply the product to the walls heated up to 50-60 ° C and wash off after complete cooling. Be sure to use rubber gloves to protect the hands.
The same properties as citric acid have a solution of acetic acid. It is necessary to mix it in equal proportions with water and perform similar to the previous method of action. Only the exposure time will increase to about 2 hours.
Sounds, of course, unlikely, but in practice it works. In fact, baking powder is an ordinary soda with citric acid. When these two components interact with ordinary water, a chemical reaction takes place accompanied by the release of gas. It is at this point that the splitting of various contaminants occurs. To achieve the desired effect, pour the powder on the desired place, distribute evenly and sprinkle with water from the spray gun. After about 20-30 minutes you will see that small balls of yellowish or brownish color are formed, which can easily be removed with a damp cloth.
