1.How to remove the inner glass oven door and clean it
There are several steps that you need to take for you to get a very clean glass oven door. It goes without saying that the oven must be cooled first before you start cleaning it. Trying to clean it while it is hot can result in burns and it is way harder to get it squeaky clean when you are worried about potential burns. When it is cool you can unscrew the inside glass oven door. This will give you access to the in-between layers of your oven where crumbs and dust usually build up. Use a vacuum hose to get all the tiny bits of dirt out of that space.
For the oven door itself, you can use an oven cleaner or make a homemade cleaning paste. Baking soda and vinegar is all that you will need. If there is grease and grime around the glass, sprinkle some baking soda on the affected areas then spray some vinegar on top. Leave to rest for at least 15 minutes. It will bubble and start to break down the build-up. Use a non-abrasive pad to wipe off the dirt. Using an abrasive one will damage the glass and leave it with scratches. Finally, use glass cleaner to leave the glass shining.
2.How to clean the inner glass oven door without removing it
There are times when you need to clean your glass oven door but you do not have the time to remove it. Here is how you can clean it. Leave the oven to cool. Make a paste with half a cup of soda and some water. Spread the paste onto the glass oven door using a rag or a sponge. Let the paste sit for 10-15 minutes or longer if the door is very dirty. When it starts to drip, remove the paste with a warm, clean rag. Alternatively you can mix vinegar and water in a spray bottle then spray onto the glass door.
