One of the joys of our new oven – 14 months ago – was the door – which had glass so transparent it just wasn’t true. Time has passed and the door has acquired a general brown speckle that everyday cleaning has not removed. So the time came for a systematic search for some oven door cleaner.
One of the problems of modern life is too much consumer choice. Be it coffee, or crisps, or even toothbrushes – the sheer range of options can overwhelm. So I thought I’d have no trouble finding suitable candidates for the task in hand.
I visited John Lewis. I visited Lakeland. No shortage of kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners, oven cleaners, window cleaners – but absolutely nothing for oven doors. Not in Sainsbury’s or Tesco either.
Online I tried a general google search. nothing immediately leapt out – but wait – here’s a mumsnet thread that might point in the right direction. Somebody recommended using a crumbled dishwasher tablet as cheap and effective. And another post recommended this:
It’s a Lakeland product, available online rather than off the shelf.
You apply the gel, wait, then – the moment of truth – wipe away.
The result was – extraordinary !
