Cleaning your kitchen is like a marathon when you've never been in a running shoe before. "What to do first? What do I need? I don't have time for this! »
The first thing to do is to plan! You don't run 42km overnight. We plan and go at our own pace. Same in the kitchen. As a result, we have designed a quick and easy routine for you to set up every night.
As far as deep cleaning is concerned, here too it is a question of planning and organizing. In order to help you as much as possible, we have decided to launch a series of articles dedicated to the kitchen cleaning.
This week, we start with an essential: The oven!
Launch your favorite playlist, put on your gloves and let the game begin.
Cleaning my oven yes, but how?
After 10 pizzas, 5 gratins, 2 cakes and a bunch of delicious dishes, your beloved oven needs to be restored to its former glory...
We take our miracle (and eco-friendly) ingredients: vinegar, baking soda and a liquid detergent. If you don't have one, here's a recipe that's easy to make, economical and effective.
You will also need your homemade and eco-friendly spray, you know the one we talked about in this article.
First remove the racks and plates from your oven and put them in your sink or bathtub, filled with hot water. Add a cup of your home-made and eco-friendly liquid detergent and soak for one to two hours.
Caution: To avoid damaging your bathtub, put towels in it before removing the racks and plates.
Meanwhile, add 4 parts baking soda and 1 part of water to in a jar. Mix until you obtain a thick paste. Once the paste is made, you can spread it over the greasy parts of your oven (as shown in the illustration below). Leave it to work for at least 3 hours.
Using an abrasive sponge previously soaked in vinegar, rub, rub and rub hard on the grease stains until they disappear. You can also use an oven scraper for the most persistent stains.
When you are done, use your homemade and eco-friendly spray inside and outside your oven. All you have to do is wipe with a microfiber cloth.
Finally, remove the plates and racks from your sink, or bathtub. Rinse them with cold water and rub them with an abrasive brush or sponge. You can use the homemade spray to make them shine. Dry them and put them back in the oven.
Caution: We recommend that you always unplug your oven when cleaning it.
For persistent stains, repeat the operation.
If you don't have black soap or baking soda, then here is a fresh alternative.
In addition to these many health benefits, lemon is a great ally for cleaning stains and dirt. In a container, squeeze two lemons to extract the juice, which you mix with a base of hot water. Place the mixture in your oven preheated to 80° C for half an hour.
This makes it easy to remove deposits in your oven. Do not hesitate to use the rest of the lemon juice to sponge the last few stains.
On top of that, the lemon will have a fresh scent to eliminate all bad smells.
