Cleaning the Glass Door on a Self-Cleaning Oven

Self-cleaning ovens make oven cleaning quick and easy. With the push of button, your oven heats up to a temperature that it essentially cleans itself. Even if you have a self-cleaning oven, the glass door may require some extra cleaning. Food, grease and carbon build up on the glass oven door, and sometimes the self-cleaning feature cannot clean this build up off. Cleaning oven doors does not have to be a dreaded task. If you use the right products and methods, you can clean oven glass in no time.

Mix 2 tbsp cream of tartar and 1 tbsp white vinegar in a bowl. Stir with a spoon until a paste forms.

Scoop the paste from the bowl with a paper towel. Spread the mixture all over the glass oven door.

Close the oven door and let the mixture sit on the glass for at least 2 hours. Wipe down the door with a damp sponge to remove the paste residue.

Wipe down the door with a dry towel to remove any moisture.

Combine 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water into a bowl if the oven glass door is still dirty. Mix the ingredients with a spoon until a thick paste forms.

Spread the paste onto the dirty oven glass. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes before wiping it off with a damp sponge. Go over the glass with a dry rag to remove moisture and residue.

Tip

Clean your oven glass when the oven is warm. Cleaning it while its hot can cause burns.

Warning

Never use oven cleaner in a self-cleaning oven.
