Ovens: Storage and Handling Tips

In order to keep your oven in good working condition even if you will not use them for the moment, you should know how to store them properly. Here are some quick oven storage and handling tips.

Firstly, you want to make sure that your oven is cleaned properly before you move it. To prevent the formation of mold and mildew from accumulating in your appliance, you need to get rid of any stuck mess. Check if the oven has a self-cleaning setting. It normally takes an hour to complete the cleaning process, from which the oven reaches its highest temperature to burn off the caked-on spills. As soon as it starts to cool down, remove any burnt residues.

There are instances that this setting does not work as expected, so you need to apply some elbow grease before you can store your oven. There are some commercial products that you can find on the market that will help you get rid of the hard to remove stains, but it is best to use a natural substitute. First, remove the racks and put them aside. Then make a paste by combining baking soda and water and rub it in the interior surfaces of your oven. After making sure that you have applied the mixture in every cranny and nook, allow it to stay on it overnight. After 12 hours, remove the mixture using a damp cloth and put some vinegar to any remaining mixture.
