How to get rid of oven cleaner smell

Written by april ort | 13/05/2017

Oven cleaner is effective for removing baked-on food from oven surfaces, but it can often leave your kitchen with a foul-smelling odour. These fumes are not only irritating, they may also be toxic. You should make an effort to get rid of these fumes as soon as possible. Implement the following tips to safely and effectively remove oven cleaner smell from your kitchen.

Open windows and doors to help air out your kitchen.

Fill a shallow roasting pan with a mixture of one part vinegar to six parts water.

Place the roasting pan in your oven and turn the oven on high. The vinegar will help neutralise the odour of the oven cleaner and will help lift off any remaining food residue.

Leave the oven on for 30 minutes, and allow it to cool down.

Remove the pan from the oven and wipe down the inside of the oven with a damp rag. This will remove any excess oven cleaner and baked-on food.


Use an oven mitt when removing the pan from the oven.
