How to Clean the Glass Window on an Oven


The glass window of an oven door allows you to check on the food you are cooking without opening the door. Opening the door allows heat to escape and allows air into the oven that often causes cakes to drop in the middle. The glass window requires regular cleaning as food splatters and residue quickly accumulate on the glass through regular use of the oven.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper towels
  • Sponge
  • Distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Saturate a paper towel with white vinegar, and wipe across the outside of the oven door, especially cleaning the window well.

  • Wipe the outside of the window with a damp paper towel moistened with water to remove the vinegar solution and any lifted residue.

  • Open the oven door so the glass part lays flat.

  • Saturate paper towels with pure distilled vinegar. Open the paper towels, one at a time, and lay them flat over the glass window. Repeat until the entire window is covered with the vinegar-soaked paper towels.

  • Let the paper towels sit for 15 minutes to loosen all food residue, making the cleaning process easy. Remove and discard the paper towels after 15 minutes has passed.

  • Scrub the window with a damp sponge to remove the residue and vinegar. Repeat until the entire window is clean.

  • Rinse the sponge with fresh water, wring out and wipe across the window once more for one final cleaning.
