Oven Cleaning Made Quick and Easy

July 7, 2020

There are several places in your house that are tricky to clean. Thankfully, your Arlington Heights maid service technician knows a few ways in which to clean those areas. If they fall outside of the scope of a normal clean, she may instruct you on how to clean them yourself. One of these is oven cleaning. We are here today to tell you a quick and easy way to clean the inside of your oven door.

You may already know that the glass on your oven door is double-thick and extra durable in order to withstand very high temperatures. However, grime, mold and other things can end up in between the panes. This is a tough spot for oven cleaning, since it requires you to reach the space between the glass without breaking the panes. And if you can figure out how to do so, you next need to get some cleaning implements in between them as well. Here is one good way to do so, courtesy of an maid service Arlington Heights:

1) You will need a wire coat hanger, a thick rubber band, and a glass cleaning wipe. These three materials are easy to come by, and have many uses.

2) Unwind the coat hanger so that one hook end is exposing and isolated. You will need to keep the part of the hanger that protrudes down from this end as straight as possible. This will allow you to control the movement of the hooked end.

3) Remove the drawer that is located underneath your oven. (This gives you a good chance to clean under it very well while the area is exposed.) Once the drawer has been temporarily relocated to an out of the way spot, you’ll be able to see the underside of the oven door. Look for the little oval-shaped slots that allow you access to the space between the glass panes on the door.

4) Attach one glass cleaning wipe to the hooked end of the coat hanger, wrapping the rubber band around repeatedly. Make sure that it is secure before moving on the next step, as you don’t want to lose the wipe in between the glass!

5) Slide the hooked end of the coat hanger, glass cleaning wipe and all, into the slot at the bottom of the door and up between the panes of the glass. Move it from side to side, making sure to clean as much of the glass as possible. (This method will clean the inside portions of both panes of glass.) You may need to use more than one glass cleaning wipe. This is depending on the level of grease and grime that has built up in between the panes, so remember to repeat as necessary. When the window looks clean you are done.

As you can see, cleaning the space between the panes of glass on your oven door is not an impossible task. Yes, you can task your Arlington Heights maid service technician about performing oven cleaning, but you may end up having to pay for the extra time required.
