Project Steps


There aren't many household jobs that are more tedious than trying to clean the inside of an oven. Baked-on grease is nearly impossible to remove. Luckily, the HomeRight Steam Machine makes it easy! Not only was I able to get our oven clean, but I didn't need to use any harmful chemicals in the process.

Step 1

First, I gave the oven an initial steam, and then quickly ran a soapy sponge over the baked-on grease and allowed it to soak for a few minutes. This helped loosen the grease and grime a bit so that the Steam Machine could do its job even more easily.

Step 2

After the dish soap had soaked in a bit, I removed the oven racks and steamed the inside of the oven, scrubbing with the brush attachment as I went along. The Steam Machine uses pressurized steam to loosen and dissolve dirt and grime, and it works amazingly well. I can't even imagine how long it would have taken me to get this oven clean without it. It was embarrassingly dirty! I tried scrubbing with a sponge and the grime wouldn't budge. The steam was very effective in loosening it up, which then allowed me to wipe it away with a paper towel. 

Step 3

I placed the oven racks in the sink and steamed them separately, wiping with a sponge as the baked-on grease became loose.

Step 4

There were layers and layers of gunk in this oven, and I was amazed at how quickly and easily it came clean with the Steam Machine. I would have never gotten it this clean without it, and it would have taken me hours to even try. Check out the "after"! 

Step 5

And here's one last look at the before and after, side by side. The Steam Machine is a life saver! There are so many different uses for it, from cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, toys, the car, to removing wallpaper and more. This is definitely one tool that I will keep in my arsenal for a very long time!

Cleaning the inside of an oven can be extremely difficult and time consuming, but the HomeRight Steam Machine makes the job easy. With very little "elbow grease," I was able to get our oven looking nice and clean without using harmful chemicals.
