Project Steps


Hey everyone it's Ruthie from Refashionably Late again!  I hope your 2018 is starting out wonderful!  I'm on a complete cleaning kick lately and something I've wanted to do for quite some time was clean my oven door.  We bought new appliances about 2-3 years ago and I haven't cleaned the oven door once...whoops!  I'm sure I'm not the only one that has gone that long though!

Step 1

To start you will fill up your SteamMachine with the provided funnel and measuring cup.  Inside the booklet of instructions is a list of how much water to add for how long of time you want to use the SteamMachine.  I added one cup full at a time.  If I realized that the SteamMachine was getting low on water I would take a quick break to add more.

Step 2

To start, wait for the SteamMachine to warm up.  Once the orange light has turned off it is ready to use.

Step 3

As I started with steaming the oven door it wasn't working as well as I had hoped.  I was using the small nylon brush attachment.  It was getting the not caked on gunk on the top off but not really scrubbing it as much as I wanted.  I looked inside of the manual and realized I was missing a very important brush.  The brass brush.  I must have misplaced it, unfortunately. 

Step 4

I had to add one extra step to my process that you won't have to do.  It was still super quick.  After I would steam a smaller section of the glass door I would then take a brillo sponge to that area and the grease would come right up!  It was really amazing!  I would then use a cloth to wipe off the excess residue.

Step 5

After I made my way around the oven door with the steam then scrub system I was finished.  In all, it probably took me about 20-30 minutes.  I'm sure it would have taken even less time if I had the correct brush. :)

Step 6

I will have to make sure to get the brass brush for the next time I clean my oven.  I'm anxious to give it a try inside of my oven.  Maybe I'll share that process with you later in the year!  I hope you all have a wonderful Martin Luther King Jr. Day and are enjoying time with friends and family!  Don't forget to head on over to Refashionably Late for more DIY projects and tutorials!
