The Best Non-Toxic Oven Cleaner
Powerizer Complete is a full proof multi-purpose cleaner and detergent. When it comes to cleaning delicate items, Powerizer will handle that with kitten gloves. It merely means using less of the detergent. But when it comes to cleaning your oven, Powerizer Complete is the best non-toxic oven cleaner that will get down with the dirty, scour, scrub and degrease with the best of them. In this case, you increase the dosage to create a paste and pour it onto the surface.
The easiest way to clean an oven is to use the self-clean feature which bakes the interior of your oven at an extremely high level of heat, decomposing food droppings to ash. It’s practical and works great but can take up to two hours. Others say cleaning with ammonia will do the job, but the fumes are pretty toxic and require you turn off the gas to your oven and blow out the pilot light so that the fumes will not catch on fire. It sounds a little risky and complicated for most, and who wants to light a pilot after cleaning.
With Powerizer Complete it has a degreaser, natural plant-based enzymes, and other natural mineral-based ingredients to help break down baked-on, burnt-on food and remove grease from the surfaces of your oven. The simplicity of using only the best ingredients and the science behind them is what makes Powerizer Complete so effective. We are going to set expectations now. Some scrubbing may be required, but, with Powerizer Complete non-toxic oven cleaner, you can pour it, wipe it, sponge it, scrub it and mop it and in the process, you won’t be exposed to harsh chemicals or have to worry about shutting off the gas and relighting the pilot to your oven. Let us walk through the steps.
Here is what you will need
- Bucket or tub for the cleaning solution
- Cleaning solution using one(1) scoop of Powerizer to one (1) gallon of water
- Hand dish scrubber
- Scouring pad and sponge or one (1) which has with both
- At least two (2) Microfiber Cleaning Cloths one (1) for washing and absorbing excess liquids, one (1) for polishing
Step 1. Declutter the oven
Remove all items from your oven, including what may be sitting in the warming tray below. Leave the oven racks in place, so any food residues are removed in the process as well.
Step 2. Self-Clean the Oven
Use the self-clean oven feature if your oven is equipped with one. Read your instruction manual, it will require the over is locked and a cooling period is necessary. The total time is usually between two to four hours total. If your oven is not equipped with a self-clean feature, skip to Step 3.
Step 3. Remove debris before you begin your Wash- Sponge it
Begin by sweeping out the ashes and lingering food crumbs using a damp sponge before you start to wipe all the surfaces with Powerizer Complete non-toxic oven cleaner. After removing debris, rinse your sponge in plain water first and let the crumbs flush down the sink or into the trash can. Try to avoid dumping more substantial bits into the Powerizer solution. Finally set aside your sponge in case you need it in the following steps.
Step 4. Pour it, Wipe it, Sponge it or Scrub it
Next, begin to wipe all the surfaces with your Powerizer solution and a microfiber cloth. Make sure to saturate all the surfaces to start to loosen the food residues that are burnt on. In the areas where burnt on stains are still sitting, pour the Powerizer in the powdered form onto the stains. If the stains are on the vertical sides, pour the powder onto the wet hand dish scrubber or the sponge, so the granules embed longer into the sponge or nylon fibers of the hand scrubber while you scrub. Pour powder on the bottom surface and then slowly add hot water to control the desired consistency of your paste.
If you choose to let it soak to soften the stains, make sure you have a decent puddle, so the water doesn’t completely evaporate, and the stain fighting laundry detergent remains active. They will continuously work to loosen and dissolve residues for up to six (6) to eight (8) hours. When you are ready to finish cleaning, use your scouring pad to scuff away the burnt-on residues. A soft copper scouring pad is a better choice than a traditional metal scouring pad. Copper is softer and less likely to remove any protective coating on the surface of your oven.
Step 5. Rinse & Polish Surfaces
After scrubbing everything clean, rinse the surface with plain water. If your stove is electric, be sure to make sure the burner coils are wiped clean so that no residues are left behind. Similar to when grease splatters onto other stove-top burner coils while cooking, if not noticed and left to dry, weird smells and smoke will burn off the next time it is used. Finally spray water onto a fresh dry microfiber cloth to dampen it and polish the insides, front glass on the door inside and out. This will make sure any remaining residues are buffed and lifted leaving no streaks. Your metal and stainless steel surfaces will sparkle.
Although cleaning your oven isn’t something done daily, when it does hit the top of your to-do list, it will take a little time and effort. However, it doesn’t have to be a two (2) to four (4) hours task. Nor does it require you expose your household to toxic fumes or the risks associated with blowing out or relighting oven pilot lights or turning on or off gas lines. No different from scrubbing your toilet or the tub, the process for cleaning an oven can be simplified and a safer cleaning option when using Powerizer Complete toxic-free oven cleaner. You can pour it, scrub it, wipe it, sponge it then rinse it so you can quickly get back to creating magical moments in the kitchen.
