How to Clean a Natural Gas Oven (the Green Way)

No one likes cleaning the oven.

Even more than that, no one likes inhaling oven cleaner fumes while doing it. However, if your oven smells funny every time you turn it on and you can’t remember the last time it was cleaned, it might be time.

Keeping gas appliances like your oven clean isn’t just a matter of good housekeeping, it’s a matter of home safety. Leftover food and grease in your oven can pose a fire risk. And to all the energy savers out there, food caked onto your oven can increase cooking times, costing you money in the long run.

So, how do you clean a greasy oven without harsh chemicals? SCANA Energy has an easy and affordable solution using two common household items.

Here’s your step-by-step guide:

1.     First, some basic gas safety. Make sure the oven is turned off and cooled down.

2.     Remove oven racks.

3.     Mix 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of water until it becomes a thick paste.

4.     Spread the non-toxic oven cleaner mixture over the entire oven interior.

5.     Let the mixture sit for 12 hours.

6.     Spray the interior of the oven with vinegar.

7.     Wipe the oven clean.

Voilà! Your oven is ready for your next culinary masterpiece (or frozen pizza – we won’t judge).
