Saving time cleaning does not always mean cutting corners, sometimes it means cleaning wisely, or prepping the area before you clean to save time later. Here’s how to clean a kitchen oven quickly.
Save Time Oven Cleaning Tip: First, Check What the Oven Manufacturer Recommends
Most major appliance manufacturers have websites that include the care and cleaning of their appliances. Find out your client’s appliance brand ahead of time and check the website for the best way to clean their oven. You can even ask for a model or serial number located on the appliance and enter this information into the website to pull up a PDF copy of the oven’s owner’s manual.
Save Time Oven Cleaning Tip: Cover the Floor Around the Oven and Oven Door
All that greasy grime from inside the oven can spill over the door and drip in-between cracks, leaving a messy floor that you now need to clean. Avoid this by placing either a plastic garbage bags or an old towel to protect the floor.
Save Time Oven Cleaning Tip: Remove the Warming Drawer
Remember to clean top to bottom and left to right in order to maximize your cleaning efforts and to keep from cleaning the same area twice.
Wear gloves to protect your hands.
Put on some music to make cleaning more enjoyable.
Around the House- Spring Cleaning Checklist
Ceiling Fans: Use a microfiber duster to remove any dust that accumulates on the blades.
Shelves: Remove items from shelves and book cases to give shelves a good dusting and polish with a microfiber cloth. Polish the glass on any framed photos.
Blinds: Dust blinds dry first in order to remove dust using a microfiber duster. Be sure to turn blinds in one direction to get as much of the surface area as possible. If dirt still persists after your initial dusting, and if the blinds are plastic, you may need to take the blinds down and soak them in a bathtub to remove dirt and grime. Allow them to air dry outside before re-hanging.
Windows: After a long winter, your home’s windows will need a good cleaning. Window cleaner and a sponge should do the trick. Melamine eraser sheets which are thin and flexible will help you get into tight corners to really get them clean. Don’t forget to wash both the interior and exterior of the window.
Walls: Spot clean your walls using a damp eraser sponge.
Carpets & Area Rugs: shampoo carpets and area rugs. For spot cleaning, use a carpet-safe cleaning solution, a little water and an eraser sponge.
