Cleaning Oven safely

Right, I haven't cleaned my oven for a few years now :innocent:. My mum said she would come down and help with some housework so last night Mike decided to go on a spring clean in preparation :snigger: I really am not lazy girls I promise but I just can't bend down to do things anymore. Anyway I started buying ecover to use to spray surfaces etc. I heard Mike open the oven and before I could stop him he had squirted the inside with it, I told him to stop then and he pretended he hadn't even squirted the inside with it but I am sure he had. He did stop but do you think its okay to cook food in it now, obviously I have to use the oven to cook food but I don't want any fumes or stuff going in my food. grrrr men. He is great helping me out but he doesn't realise that we have to be safe with these things.

Ecover is a natural, environmentally friendly, plant based cleaner and is perfectly harmless if wiped around your oven just as it is on the surfaces that you have used it on.

Just get Mike/your mum to wipe around the oven with soapy water if you're that worried - but the soapy water will be just the same as Ecover in your oven!

I wipe around mine every week with chemicals and clean it once a month with double-hard evil chemicals and I'm still alive!

:faint: I thought I had misread the word years then Jane!! :snigger:

If Mike has sprayed around the inside of the oven provided you leave the oven door open to ventilate and rinse it out with warm soapy water to make sure there aren't any neat residual drops it will do no harm whatsoever hun. :smile:

Spider, of course every oven should be self cleaning. I remember I used to scrub it every time I used it but of course it was new then. Honestly being pregnant, you can't bend down, so how can you clean your oven hey :D unless you've got a dh who decides to do a spring clean when your mother has offered to help out :snigger:

No honestly, never cleaned it - been here 7 years! Have wiped the bits of pizza out of the bottom occasionally - does that count? And I don't even have the very good reason of being pg!

We got a cleaner twice a week so our oven is also mysteriously clean!!
(Got to add that we do work from home so lots of people here that makes a mess).

When you turn on the oven the ecover should burn off anyway :)

I'm with you on the years front Jane! I gave mine a treat and used a specialist oven cleaning firm last year. Trouble was they didn't do the grill pan which was the worst bit really.

I cleaned mine the other day by putting hot water and lemon juice in a tray at the bottom and putting it on really high - the steam cuts into the grease and stuff. Wasn't brilliant (think you need that scarey acid stuff to really do it properly) but it got some of the grime off. I've become a bit of a fan of lemon juice just lately - it cleans the microwave really well and the other day I burnt a saucepan and it got that sparkly too, its a miracle worker... crikey how sad am I :snigger:

Do you mean to tell me that all this time I've been wasting my time cleaning an oven that doesn't need doing?! Please tell me that somebody at least takes the silver trays out and scrubs the brown off them?? :snigger:

Rosey, I had no idea that such a company existed! Tell me more, how much would one of those cost? How did they do it?

It's cheaper to buy a new oven that to just waste money on cleaning it.... surely????


Jane, seriously, the man uses an environmentally friendly cleaner to clean the oven, without you asking him to... and you shout at him???? :8o:

There's probably more chemicals in half a pack of hob nobs than in your oven :snigger:

Missy I used a local company, just a one man band - cost about £50 just for the oven (the hob would have been extra but I don't mind doing that). Bit pricey but money well spent for me! Try googling oven cleaning for your area - I bet there's at least one company that come up.

Felt a bit of a slob after reading this, so checked out said oven and I have a self cleaning one.... now I admit the bottom of it is a tad grotty but its not that bad, so to hell with it, it'll wait another few months!!!

(I do the hob and grill pan tho' so please don't think too badly of me!!)

I thought that you just put a pizza tray on the bottom to catch the drips and then every few months you just shove that in the dishwasher?? No??

Missy, I think you should consider a career as a doula, you have so much knowledge on the baby stuff AND you clean surfaces with dettol..... it could be a winner for you, and at a going rate starting at £1k for attending a birth, LOADS A MONEY!!!!!

No never too much dettol, just around nasty bugs like salmonella. Children should be left to eat sand and dirt - honestly it does their immune system wonders!! The key is finding the balance :happy:

When you need industrial oven cleaner to clean the bath after your child has been in it. That's about the right balance :D

You're going to be too knackered to care about your oven/cupboards in a couple of months so you can reward DH by sending him off to play golf while you sit in your trackies covered in sick and baby poo :D

I think you need to negotiate now that Saturday morning is daddys and babies time when he takes them out of the house for a couple of hours whilst you have a lie in, a nice bath and maybe potter around with the hoover if you feel like it. Thats what worked for us with Mooch and we plan to do it again witht he newbie.
