How to Clean Between Oven Window Glass

By January 22, 2017 Cleaning Tips

Anyone who has an oven that’s more than a few years old has experienced this frustrating problem. Oven windows are normally double-paned glass and food, grease, syrup, and moisture often builds up in between them. Whatever’s in there usually  finds it ways through the vents or cracks at the top. Grease can also travel with steam vapors and easily gets trapped inside the door as well. It’s one area of people’s homes that rarely gets cleaned and unfortunately, it’s really noticeable. One way to clean in there is to disassemble the door but this will void the oven’s warranty and you run the risk of causing more damage in the process. Luckily, there’s an easier way!

What you’ll need before you get started:

  • Wire hanger
  • Clorox Glass Wipes
  • Rubber band

Step 1: Remove the drawer below the oven


Step 2: Build a cleaning contraption with your equipment by bending your wire hanger in to a hook. rap the glass wipes around and hold in place with the rubber band.



Step 3: You’ll probably have to lay down on your back so you can see under the oven door. You’re looking for openings in to the space between the oven door to slide your cleaning contraption in to.



Step 4: Watch where the contraption is in the window and slide it back & forth as you slide it further in to the door.




Step 5: For really dirty glass, you’re probably going to have to change the towel several times.



Step 6: Enjoy your sparkling clean glass!
