The first step to cleaning between oven glass is to gather the materials you’ll need. When it comes to the cleaning product, you can use one which is specially designed for cleaning the oven. However, most of them are with high chemical contents, which can damage your skin and leave an unpleasant odour in the oven. Why not opt for a natural solution that you can make at home? Lemon juice, white vinegar, baking soda, dish soap and citric acid will do wonders for you on your mission to clean between the oven glass! Prepare a soft cloth to clean with and remember to always wear rubber gloves, even if you are using natural cleaning detergents instead of ready-made ones.

Unplug and dismantle the oven (if needed)

If you haven’t already unplugged your oven, do so now. Better to always stay on the safe side! If you had recently used it, you will need to wait for it to cool completely. If your oven glass doesn’t have holes between it, you will need to dismantle it in order to clean. However, if it does, or you just don’t want to bother with taking it apart, there is also a trick you can use to clean between the panes! I will refer to it below. If you do however remove it, depending on the oven model, the task might require a screwdriver. Refer to your oven’s manual for specific instructions.

Make homemade cleaning detergents

To make a homemade detergent for cleaning your all sides of your oven glass, mix equal parts white vinegar and dish soap in a spray bottle. Mix the ingredients well. You can also use baking soda for cleaning the inner part of the glazing. However, this can be done only if you have dismantled your oven door. To clean between the two panes with baking soda, sprinkle the chemical compound on the windows and spray with water or a water/white vinegar solution (3:1). Leave for 15–20 minutes, and then wipe it off with damp paper towels.

Clean the exterior and interior oven glass

Once you have made your white vinegar/ dish soap solution, you can begin cleaning the glass. For the best results, better to first clean the exterior and interior glass, before moving on to cleaning between it. To do so, spray the homemade vinegar and dish soap solution on the inside and outside the glass. Then wipe down with a soft, damp cloth. This will remove any dust or debris that has accumulated on the surface.

Time to clean between the oven glass!

Once you’ve cleaned the outside and the inside of the oven door, you can begin cleaning between the oven glass. First, remove the drawer under the appliance. Now you can either use a cotton swab and a toothbrush to clean between the glass or can try the old coat hanger hack. For the latter, break a coat hanger, stretch it and wrap a towel around the hooked end. Secure the hook with an elastic. Spray the vinegar and dish soap solution on the towel. Insert the hook through the holes in the oven door and wipe down the double glazing. You will need to be patient here until you have cleaned all of it. Remember to scrub gently, so you don’t scratch the glass!

Final steps and reinstalling oven door

Once you’ve finished cleaning between the oven glass, you should wipe away any excess cleaning solution. To do this, dip a clean cloth into clean water and then use it to wipe away any cleaning solution that remains on the oven door. Then it’s time to reinstall it. Refer to your oven’s manual for specific instructions on how to do this.
