Easy Off is a commercial product used to remove baked-on grease, food and grime from the inside of the oven. This product is very effective and makes the job of cleaning the oven less difficult and time-consuming. One problem associated with using Easy Off is the lingering chemical fumes that permeate the air in your household. Since the need to clean the inside of the oven is unavoidable, it's important to be able to get rid of Easy Off fumes effectively.
Things You'll Need
- Cooking pot
- 2 lemons
- White vinegar
- Clean cloths
Open windows during and after you clean your oven with Easy Off. Turn on the exhaust fan above the stove to draw out unpleasant fumes. Both of these things help reduce chemical odor by circulating fresh air throughout the kitchen and home.
Pour 1 quart water into a cooking pot. Bring the water to a boil. Slice two lemons and place them in the pot of boiling water.
Reduce the heat to allow the lemons and water to simmer. As the lemon scent wafts through the air it deodorizes the chemical odor left by the Easy Off fumes.
Neutralize odor remaining inside the oven by wiping it down with a clean cloth and white vinegar. Wet the cloth with the vinegar and wipe the inside of the oven. Allow the vinegar to air dry, with the oven door open, to neutralize the chemical smell left by Easy Off fumes.
Tips & Warnings
- Substitute baking soda and vinegar for natural, chemical-free oven cleaner that doesn't leave noxious fumes behind. Wipe down the inside of the oven with white vinegar to loosen grease and food stains. Sprinkle baking soda on a sponge or nylon scrubber and scrub to remove stains inside the oven.
- Plan to run errands or be out of the house for a few hours while the oven cleaner works. Keep windows open during the process to deodorize the home. By staying away from the appliance being cleaned, you are exposed to smelly fumes for less time.
