You’ve Probably Never Cleaned This Part of Your Oven—And It’s Filthy!

Just how does all of that grime get *between* the glass panels of an oven door, anyway? This handy video reveals the little-known trick to get it sparkling clean.

From frozen pizzas to roast chicken to those fudgy, crowd-pleasing brownies you’ve been making for years, your oven is the common element behind all of your culinary creations. With that in mind, this hard-working appliance could use some TLC every now and then.

There’s lots of regular upkeep you can do to keep the inside of your oven clean, but what happens when you find grease and grime trapped between the oven door’s glass panels?

It turns out you can reach inside the oven door, between the glass, if you follow the steps in the TikTok video below.

Step 1: Grab a feather duster (or something similar)

This TikTok user recommends purchasing a long microfibre duster. However, she also mentions that improvising with a makeshift duster made from a microfibre towel and a hanger will work just fine!

Step 2: Remove your oven drawer

There should be a storage drawer under your oven that you can easily remove. Once it’s out of the way, there should be a few slots underneath that open directly into the area inside your oven door’s glass window.

Step 3: Grab your go-to cleaning solution

The choice is yours, just spray it on your duster.

Step 4: Clean the glass

Insert the prepped duster into the openings under your oven door. From there, all you have to do is wiggle the duster back and forth until you see sparkling glass!

This TikTok hack will work in a pinch, but for a serious deep clean, Family Handyman explains how to disassemble the oven door.
