If you find your oven door needing a refresher, we’ve got everything you need to know — from the easiest job (cleaning the outside) to the hardest (cleaning between the panes).
Grab your favorite glass cleaner and spray the outside. Be generous!
Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe the glass. Work in a circular motion and use elbow grease to remove any grime.
Use a second clean, dry cloth to buff the glass.
Squirt some Dawn dish soap into a bowl and dip a cleaning cloth into that, then clean the glass. Buff it dry with a second clean, dry cloth.
If that doesn’t work, spritz the glass liberally with the degreasing cleaner (to quote my dad when he’s using electrical tape: Do it like it’s free!) and wipe it with a microfiber cloth.
If the glass still needs work, add baking soda to a clean bowl of water to make a paste. Spread the paste around the window and let it sit for a few minutes. Get a clean cloth damp, and wipe everything away.
If the gunk still persists, add more of that baking soda paste and use the flat edge of the blade to oh-so-gently scrape away whatever’s remaining.
