How to Clean INSIDE Your Oven Door #FreshandClean

Okay, it’s a New Year and many of us are cleaning up after the holidays and the baking frenzy. Do you have some random drips that somehow made their way inside your oven door?
That impossible to reach location sandwiched between the glass. How does that happen?! Well, I’m going to show you how to access inside your oven door and clean that sneaky drip.

You'll find the tools required and full tutorial on my blog, listed below photos.
First remove the bottom drawer of your oven. Brace yourself for what you’ll find under there. Marbles, toy cars, dust bunnies, you name it. Might as well get the vacuum out to tackle under there while you have the drawer out (if you Give a Mouse a Cookie. Right?!)
Next you'll want to remove the screws holding the glass. A helper makes it easier. Clean the inside of the glass with a rag and glass cleaner.
While the inner glass is exposed clean that as well.
Re-assemble the glass frame by repositioning it and screwing the screws back in. Voila, no more unsightly drips! You have a clean oven inside and out.

    The whole inside of my oven door does not get clean during self-cleaning cycle. The instructions say not to use oven cleaner but I don't know how to get the grease and grunge off the door and the glass. Any help?

    The answer you give is NOT good enough! How do the drips get in there to begin with? If it's through a vent can I block it off somehow? Is it from steam in the oven? Are there other ways to vent the oven?

    It's easier to pull the door off the stove. Open it, flip up the two clips on the hinges and it pulls right out. to install reverse order.

    I have a GE oven which I cleaned between the glass plates by spraying Windex upward and placed paper towel at the tip of a carpet shampooer plastic wand and did a decent job. Attempted to remove the base screws, but couldn't determine Phillips or allen wrench so went with plan "b" mentioned above.
