Cleaning interior glass on oven door

  • 7

Any tips or suggestions for getting the greasy spills and caked on messes off the glass door?

    1. I clean my oven with a paste of baking soda and water (found it on the internet) and leave it on overnight. When it dries in teh morning, wipe it off - so easy! this includes the window. Then, after the thick gunk is gone, I use vinegar for extra cleaning on the window.

        1. Either Easy off Oven cleaner (Fume Free-Blue Can) or if you have a Tractor supply co or similar hardware type store near you that sells fireplaces they will carry a glass cleaning paste designed to clean the inside of the glass on a wood stove which works really well.

          1. I've regressed to the point where I think of it as "seasoning"...alternately soaking with baking soda and vinegar works as well as anything (not together at same time unless you enjoy chemistry experiments)

              I just did this and it worked GREAT! Twenty minutes and it's about 95%+ clean. I was so cynical. And now I'm so happy :)

              1. When I'm making a bread dough that needs warm moist proofing I put it in the cold oven with a bowl of boiling water. By the time the dough comes out the oven cavity is full of steam and condensation and the grunge on the glass is softened. I use a ceramic scraper and then a single edged razor blade for the really stubborn stuff and wipe the wet grunge away with a paper towel.
