Clean Between Your Oven’s Glass Window Panes

Large_istock_000062219218_medium

WHY DO THIS?


Remembering to clean in between your oven’s glass panes is like remembering your boss’s birthday: You need to do it once a year and it’s always kind of awkward. Fortunately, when it comes to cleaning between your oven glass, you don’t have to talk to anyone and you definitely don’t have to go to a weird happy hour on a Friday.

What You'll Need:

  • wire hanger
  • Windex wiping cloth
  • rubber band

How To:

  1. 1

    Break down a wire hanger so you have a wiping wand.

  2. 2

    Attach a Windex wiping cloth to the end of your wand with a rubber band. Don’t forget the rubber band because you may lose the wiping cloth in between the glass without it.

  3. 3

    Depending on the model of your oven, there are a number of ways to get into the area between the panes. You way need to take out the drawer below the oven to access the bottom pane, or there may be a latch release (similar to a car hood).

    If you want to be extra thorough, you can remove the door completely to make cleaning easier.

  4. 4

    Slide the cleaning wand up through the slats that are on the bottom pane of the oven door. These slats are usually covered by the oven drawer. The wand will appear between the glass panes—slide your wand around until you’ve wipes all the nasty away. Note: If this is your first time, or you haven’t done this in awhile, you may need to do a couple rounds of wipes!
