Clean Oven Vents The Easy Way
We’ve all seen the endless amount of easy kitchen hacks on Pinterest, and to be honest, so many of them don’t work as promised.
Well, the good news is, this one does! My oven vents were beyond gnarly and gross. I’ve tried cleaning them many times before by scrubbing and even putting them in the dishwasher, all to no avail.
Just look at how nasty they were. We cook a lot, and the amount of grease trapped in these oven vents is crazy! Gross! Not only is the mess dirty and greasy, but the metal rims are too.
The before and after image speaks for itself. What an amazing difference. Now, my oven vents look brand new again!
So, let me get right to it and tell you exactly what you need to do to have clean oven vents once again! All you need is two ingredients, and the best part is I’m sure you already have them in your kitchen, so no running out to the store!
What you need for clean oven vents:
- Water – enough to fill the pot halfway
- 1 cup baking soda – be sure to use a cheap one it works just as good!
- large soup pot – make sure your vents will fit neatly into it
- Kitchen Scissor Tongs
That’s it! Yep, and you will be shocked when you see just how quickly and easily it is to do. Be sure to check out some of our trending new products while you’re here too.
Start by filling up your large soup pot with water; fill it halfway.
Baking Soda Is Key
Next, when the water comes to a boil, add about 1 cup of baking soda. Stir the baking soda and water mixture for a few seconds, turn the heat off, grab a pair of Kitchen Scissor Tongs and place the oven vents into the mix.
Leave it for about a minute until you start to see all the grime disappearing! It happens fast, so you can move on with the rest of your cleaning chores around the house – or sit back and enjoy a nice glass of wine and relax – you choose :) You can immediately see just how fast it starts to clean your oven vents.
NOTE: I decided to turn off the flame and just let them sit in the mixture because the water will create a foamy film and begin to rise to the top. You don’t want it to boil over.
Look at how crazy clean they are now! Even the grease on the metal rims is sparkling clean!
Once you see the clean oven vents, you can bring the entire pot to the sink and safely dump the water. Be sure to use your tongs to remove the vents and rinse them with cool water for a minute.
Now, I have clean oven vents and can easily clean them whenever they get grimy without even breaking a sweat!
I held one up to the light so you could see just how sparkling my oven vents are now!
Now that my vents are perfectly clean, it’s time to clean the rest of the oven vent, too – ugh!
