Oven door really dirty

Hi. I use the oven pride oven cleaning bag/ kit. Which I think is the best thing for doing your racks and the inside of the oven but the glass bit( that you can take out) of the doors is disgusting. I have tried elbow grease and scrubbing with boiling hot water and washing up liquid. I've tried vinegar, window cleaner. Everything. An I put the glass in the oven pride bags too? Any other ideas that will get rid of the grime ?

Yes... A professional oven cleaner. They have magic potions. They work.

Steep in soda crystals in hot water for a couple of hours. Followed by a good scour/scrub. Usually works for me.

We have sold out house so don't pay £50 or whatever it is for a company to come in. The oven is fine. Just the doors. I shall try the soda crystals. Thanks

Glad I'm not your buyer then! I always get professional in when I sell. Only fair to new owner to have oven sparkling!

And that includes the door!

Try astonish oven and hob paste on it. I use it on my glass door and it comes up a treat.

Try wire wool and a cream cleaner. Then rinse and dry.

but not wire wool on glass or aluminium which will be irrecoverably scratched

oven pride is fine on glass, I use it on our oven door all the time

I use a gentle plastic mess scourer and fairy liquid in hot water. Works a treat. I unscrew my oven door apart and clean the inside then put back together, looks gd afterwards.

After cleaning with fairy, i dry then clean with glass cleaner for shine

Yes oven pride on the door then wash it in sink a couple of hours later

I find doctor power good for this - the original paste with the sponge. bit of elbow grease required but strangely satisfying.

You can get special scrapers for ceramic hobs which are basically a razor blade in a holder, which work on glass too. I used one on our oven door and I can now see what's cooking!

Barbeque cleaner is great for just dissolving the brown grot on oven doors in seconds. Just wipe off with some kitchen roll and then wipe with a wet cloth to get any residue off. No scrubbing required!

Thanks dexter. It's the brown grit that's the problem. (Honestly the rest of the oven is cleanwink)

I used one of those razor blade scrapers for taking paint off glass on our old oven. smile

Soak a dishwasher tablet it hot water to soften it then use it as an eraser to rub dirt away-amazingly it works with no effort at all.

soak it in a v strong solution of soda crystals and after cleaning it remove residual brown bit s with a sharp knife.

I tried valiumredhead tip, as above, the dishwasher tablet.............. Amazing ! No effort, simple, the brown grease just lifted off , leaving a gleaming glass door. smile

valiumredhead Sat 12-Oct-13 23:50:10

Amazing isn't it?grin I'd tried EVERYTHING and it didn't shift it. It's quite satisfying as it's so easy!

Suddengeekgirl Sun 13-Oct-13 20:19:14

valliumredhead is a genius! FACT! grin
Just done my oven door and its sparkling!

Do you think I could do the inside of the oven the same way?

123rd Sun 13-Oct-13 21:08:29

Does it matter what sort of tab? I would assume the compact powder type? ( we use the liquid tab ones so would up up with a right ol mess ) grin

daftwit Sun 13-Oct-13 22:17:59

I used a tablet (cheap... Tesco economy ) honestly it worked a dream. Makes me wonder how valiumredhead came up with the idea.......... !!!!

Ovenmate.
Paint on with the brush provided. Wipe gunk off a bit later with kitchen roll, one more time with a cloth or sponge. Done. No smell and no scrubbing! Fab stuff, got it from Lakeland.
