To clean the inside of your oven doors (inside glass) unscrew top screws of oven door...pops open. If not pry gently apart with knife. Be careful to make sure oven door does not come off, hit floor or accidentally!!

    It's pretty easy to clean ; just lay on counter top and scrub ; my problem is it's an old apartment stove and someone stripped one of the screws a
    nd i can't get it apart so it's full of dust and dirt and looks horrible when the sun hits. it.

I have never been able to clean inside the doors and quite frankly I'm not at all sure how the heck grease, etc. even gets in there!! This worked great for me, and I highly recommend all of you to give it a try!!

    lower the oven door to the open positiion, completely cover it with baking Soda. Use spray bottle to dampen baking soda to a paste, then gently clean the glass With a damp cloth. Use hand vac to remove paste from the door. You may also want to put a towel under the oven door to catch anything that may fall to the floor.

    I tried it and had to pay a repairman $100.00 to get the dam door back together! It was not one of my better moments.

    There should be holes/slots in the bottom of your over door. You will need a long handled bottle brush (from wine store) of a thin piece of wood with paper towel wrapped around end held with elastic to go up between glass pieces. This is very time comsuming but if you can't get the door apart by removing screws, it is secon best option.

    Oh my...had no idea you were all following what I was talking about with Oven Door cleaning.I clean for a living, I've tried many ways to clean the inside glass of Oven Doors. I've come in from the Bottom (easier said then done!) I've lost rags (came undone!) So I went the old fashion way.
    Lay them flat, use a degreaser sprinkle baking soda on top let it sit 10 minutes. (Ive used oven cleaner also instead depending on severity of glass.)Use a scrubber (any kind , non scratching) scrub vigorously, add more degreaser if needed, scrub more. Start to remove with paper towels ( I use an old rag I can toss later) Hot water, continue to wipe. Use more degreaser or baking soda to remove any stubborn spots. This is not a quick's like oven cleaning. Do them together if time allows. I like a product that does the work for me...not vice versa.
    When finished clean with window cleaner for a nice shine, replace oven door carefully. Heat oven up, run vent to remove any smells for about 5 minutes! ( This allows no nasty smells when you have friends over!) Once again, patience is needed, time and Satisfaction allows you to Pat yourself on the back when finished!
    Job well done till next time!
    Ps. If you try a product that doesn't work, return it for your money back!! (Keep Receipt)
    There are $$ pricey products out there that don't work. Never be ashamed to take what doesn't work back!!
    Happy Cleaning!! Rebecca D
