How to clean oven glass: ‘Magic’ cleaner cuts through grime

Oven doors often have glass in them which needs to be cleaned regularly to remove grease, grime and food debris.

If dirt and grime are left for too long, it can lead to a build-up of grease which can cause unpleasant odours, smoke and even fires.

Tom Jackson, cleaning expert and founder of Carpet Cleaners MCR, recommends using a specific product to remove unpleasant stains from ovens.

He previously told that the “best” solution for cleaning oven glass is to use a professional oven-cleaning product.

However, he said if you don’t have that, you can use a domestic product such as The Pink Stuff. He claimed this is “great for cutting through the grime”.

The Pink Stuff is a mild abrasive cleaner that has become extremely popular among cleaning enthusiasts.

The cleaning solution is often used to clean saucepans, barbecues, tiles, showers, garden furniture and uPVC.

The Pink Stuff website describes the product as having a “natural formulation”. It reads: “Its natural formulation has been developed to provide high performance without the need for harsh chemicals.”

As well as using the cleaning paste, Tom said homeowners will need to use a scourer to help break up grease and burnt-on food that’s harder to remove. Before cleaning an oven door, make sure you’re wearing gloves to protect your hands.

Next, apply the product to the glass and rub it in using a cloth or the scourer. The product needs to be left on the glass for 10 to 15 minutes so the formula has a chance to break down the grease and grime.

Tom added: “It can be tempting, but don’t rub it off too soon. Let it work its magic.”

Once the product has been left to work, rub the product into the glass using the scourer and a small amount of water.

If there are any particularly tough marks, homeowners can use a scraper.

Remove the cleaning paste using a cloth and warm water. If there are any stubborn stains left over, go over them with the scourer but make sure not to rub too vigorously to avoid damage.

For a more natural cleaning solution, homeowners can use baking soda and white vinegar.

Simply sprinkle baking soda over the oven glass before spritzing it with a white vinegar and water solution.

Allow the solution to work for 15-20 minutes before wiping it away with a wet paper towel.
