Recently moved house – make your oven seem like a brand new one with these tips from Clean n Restore
When you move into a new home it is great to have that blank canvas where you can make your mark and really turn a house into your home. It is tricky to feel that excitement when sometimes you enter your new home and it is not quite as clean a slate as you had hoped. Paintwork is marked, carpets are dirty and need cleaning and you have been left with appliances that are in need of a little TLC. We have put together a quick handy guide to restoring your ‘new to you’ appliances for those very moments.
Ovens are often the most difficult to clean. It is always one of those jobs that take two hours too long once we get started! We have broken the cleaning down into hob, oven, and oven glass.
Put old newspaper on the floor by your oven and using a dry scourer, knock and dislodge any large crusted on dirt. Brush onto the newspaper and bin! Using the dry method first saves you finding big slimy lumps of somebody else cooking.
Once you have got the easier bits off, use bicarbonate of soda and use generously all over the oven. Spray a little water over until damp. Make a paste from the bicarb and water and use an old toothbrush to get on the tricky wire racks and back of the oven and leave overnight. Although it takes longer it makes the task much easier and bearable.
Rinse thoroughly in the morning, again put newspaper down and knock all the dirt onto that. scrubbing should now be of minimum effort and the oven as clean as new!
Use a specialist hob cleaner for the top, whether it is gas rings, ceramic, glass tops, there are some great products that can restore your oven tops to new.
The glass can be the trickiest. Find the cooker manual either in the house hopefully, many makes nowadays will be online. Take apart the glass very carefully and clean with a strong degreaser and glass cleaner. rinse well and allow to dry before putting back together. There are many great products available in your supermarket, including ones where you leave the chemical in the bag and let that do the work. Make sure you follow the instructions correctly and rinse thoroughly as they can leave a chemical taint behind.
