How to Clean the Glass in the Stove Door

Baking soda has been used in the home since 1846. Modern companies have attempted to dress it up, re-package it, and give it new and improved names, but the truth of the matter is, baking soda does just fine all by itself. Vinegar aside, few household products have the versatility of baking soda, or the cleaning power. Baking soda neutralizes many substances, allowing for easier cleaning. Take a second look at that inconspicuous little box on your shelf. Baking soda can clean even stubborn stains off of an oven door, and so much more.

Step 1

Open the oven door and spread old towels out beneath it in order to protect your floor.

Step 2

Fill the sink or bucket with warm soapy water using liquid dish soap.

Step 3

Wet the oven glass with the rag/dishcloth saturated in the warm, soapy water.

Step 4

Pour 1/2-cup baking soda and 1/4-cup powdered dishwasher detergent onto the oven glass to form a paste. Add more water if necessary.

Step 5

Use the scrub brush, in a circular motion, to scrub the glass. The baking soda and dishwasher detergent powder will scour the glass without scratching it. Rinse the scrub brush as needed in clean water.

Step 6

Continue scrubbing and re-applying baking soda and dishwasher detergent powder as needed until all debris and grease has been loosened.

Step 7

Rinse with a clean cloth and water and towel dry.
