  • This is where you get to sit back and watch the oven do all the work. Leave the oven on for several hours together and watch it clean itself as charred foods particle fall off.
  • Once you notice that almost all food particles have fallen off, turn the oven off. Wait for it to cool down before manually cleaning the oven with a clean and dry cloth.
The Speedy Cleaning Way

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and turn it off once you are sure the oven is at the required temperature.
  • Next, spray the insides of the oven with your trusty oven cleaner and allow it to rest for ten minutes or so.
  • Once the ten minutes have passed, with a damp sponge wipe the cleaner and the dirt away. Care should be taken to ensure that the sponge is just damp and not soaking wet. You will also from time to time have to rinse the sponge.
  • Post wiping the oven clean with the sponge; wipe the dampness away with a clean, dry and soft cloth. Your oven should now be looking as good as new.
