Steam Clean OvensBy Julie In Blog
When you steam clean ovens the fast easy way…
even the greasiest ickiest ovens come sparkling clean without harsh toxic chemicals.
The burnt-on food just melts under the 300 degree steam – no fumes – no rubber gloves – no kidding
Watch the video – see how to steam clean ovens
Steps to follow to steam clean ovens:
- Attach the nozzle to the hose
- You have several options for brushes – use what works best to steam clean your oven. Either a 2 inch stiff bristle brush, a 1 inch stainless steel brush OR a square PowerPad disk.
- For ALL brushes (whichever you decide) wrap with the scrub bud.
- Use 1 or 2 extensions to keep yourself up off your knees if your oven sits on your kitchen floor.
- Use 1 extension to keep your head out of the oven if your oven is built into the wall.
- Use low steam – medium or high just splashes the grease farther and actually blows the heat away from where you need it.
- DO NOT SCRUB – keep the scrub bud immobile touching the greasy spot until the steam has had a chance to melt through the baked-on mess.
- Now gently abrade away the melted food. The scrub bud is wound, not cut so it’s safe to use on your baked porcelain oven interior.
- Wipe up the grease and moisture with a paper towel.
- The only additive that is effective is a drop of dish soap – it’s a good grease cutter and can really speed up the process of steam cleaning ovens. But only a drop – otherwise you’ll have a ton of bubbles and lots of rinsing to do.
- It’s safe to steam clean ovens equipped with a self-cleaning feature. No chemicals are used that could cause problems during the next self-cleaning cycle.
- Stove top burnt on spills can be steam cleaned this way as well. Follow the same NO scrubbing technique – especially if your stove top is white painted porcelain – do not scrub off the paint.
