Thankfully, cleaning LG ovens is pretty easy. All you’ll need is a few DIY or commercial cleaning agents, patience, and our guide on how to clean an LG oven with a blue interior. If you’re new to kitchen cleaning, let us help you get the gunk off your LG oven and make it shine bright as new!

How to Clean an Oven With a Blue Interior?

When it comes to cleaning, the blue color hardly makes a difference. What actually matters is the amount of gunk you have inside the oven, as well as the condition of its material and construction.

The quality of the product and brand also matters. If you’re going for cheap brands, you might need to resort to gentler cleaning agents that do not strip off the blue color.

Step-By-Step DIY Guide on how to Clean LG Oven With Blue Interior

Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide on how to clean LG oven with blue interior:

1. Turn off the Power Switch and Remove the Racks

The first step would be to turn off the power for your own safety to prevent any electric short-circuit when the device comes in direct contact with water. Next, remove the racks from the oven to get better access to the interiors. You can clean the racks later separately.

2. Choose the Right Cleaning Agent

If you’re going the DIY way, you need to decide on the perfect cleaning agent. We find the combination of baking soda and white vinegar to be a rather powerful cleaning agent for ovens. You can make a quick paste of baking soda and water and apply it with a soft brush all over the interior of the oven.

The ratio of water and baking soda depends on the consistency you’re trying to achieve. For the paste to be spreadable, you’ll need at least 3 tablespoons of water to ½ cup of baking soda.

If you’re not a fan of baking soda pastes, you can also use a mixture of mild soap and water. This method might not be as efficient as baking soda when it comes to removing greedy stains, but it’ll still do a decent job. To get the best results, leave the baking soda paste overnight or for at least 12 hours.

Alternative

Another way to clean your oven is commercial cleaners. You can use a small spoon or spatula to first scoop up any greedy gunk. Use a commercial cleaner, like Easy-Off, of your choice and spray it all over the oven.

Let it sit for a while before scrubbing it off with a scotch-brite (make sure it does not leave behind any scratches or marks). Lastly, wash off the entire oven with mild soap and water to remove the residue of the cleaning agent.

3. Clean the Racks

It’s time to clean the racks while the baking soda sits on the interior. Now, different people have different ways of cleaning oven racks. Here are a few ideas we have:

  • You can coat your oven racks with the same baking soda and dip it in a hot water tub mixed with dishwashing soap.
  • Place the oven racks in a tank of hot water and add 2 full cups of fabric softener to loosen up the gunk. Let it soak for a few hours and then wipe it clean with a dry cloth.
  • If you don’t want to get your hands wet, try a magic eraser. It’s a lot of hard work but gets the job done well.

4. Wipe the Oven

The next day or after 12 hours, wipe the oven thoroughly with a damp dishcloth. The baking soda will be dry by now, so don’t hesitate to use a little more water. If you need a little more help removing the baking soda residue, try a plastic spatula to scrape off the paste residue.

If nothing else works to get off the residue (yeah, it can be pretty tough), spray a little white vinegar on the spots and gently rub it. You’ll immediately notice a slight foam, rub it off with the damp cloth and the remnants should come off.

5. Clean With Water

Once the last speck of baking soda is gone, spray clean water all over the oven and wipe it off with a clean cloth. This should minimize the smell of baking soda and vinegar, remove any cast or residue left by the cleaning agents and give the oven interiors a clean and shiny look.

Once the oven is squeaky clean, replace the oven racks back inside and your LG oven is ready for use again.

How to Clean Your LG Oven Using the Self-Clean Feature?

If you want to hasten your cleaning schedule, the self-clean feature is your best bet. Most LG ovens come with a self-cleaning switch that softens up the greedy stains, grime, and spills, making it easier for you to clean up.

Here’s a quick guide on how to use this feature:

  • Start by turning the power off and removing the racks from your oven.
  • Next, when the oven is empty, pour two cups of distilled or filtered water into the bottom of the oven. Avoid tap water, as it might leave ugly mineral deposit stains.
  • After that, press the self-clean button and the start button from the control panel.
  • You can choose the duration of the self-clean cycle — 2 hours, 3 hours, or 4 hours. A 3-hour cycle is the default setting; you can adjust that based on the extent of the grime.
  • Your first part of the job is done here. Once the cleaning cycle is over, the oven will automatically beep to inform you.
  • Next, drain the remaining water you had poured at the bottom of the oven. Remove the loose grime and residue and wipe the interiors clean with a dry towel.

Things to Keep In Mind When Using the Self-Clean Feature

If this is your first time using the self-clean feature on your LG oven, here are a few things you need to keep in mind:

  • Never use any soap or commercial cleaners when the oven is in self-clean mode. Distilled or filtered water should be the only cleaning agent.
  • Make sure the interior is completely empty. Even the smallest items like a bottle opener or spoon can disrupt the process.
  • Do not line any part of the oven with aluminum foil just to increase the total heat. It can severely damage or even chip the material.
  • Keep your kitchen windows and fans while the oven is in the self-cleaning mode for better ventilation.
  • The self-cleaning mode uses extremely high temperatures to burn down the debris. Make sure you keep your pets and children away from the oven for those few hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is the interior of LG ovens usually blue?

The blue shade of the oven interior is not only for aesthetic purposes. The blue color is known to be a great reflector of heat, which helps in keeping the temperature within the oven consistent.

2. Can you use Easy Off to clean your oven?

Easy Off is a great commercial oven cleaner and can indeed be used on an LG oven. However, since this cleaner is quite harsh, we recommend spot testing it on delicate enamel or porcelain-based ovens to ensure it won’t damage the material.

3. What products are safe to be used while cleaning the interiors of a blue LG oven?

You can use any cleaning agent of your choice, be it DIY hacks with vinegar, baking soda, ammonia, soap, or commercial cleaning agents. If there are any product restrictions, the manufacturer will clearly mention them in the user manual. Go through the manual carefully before cleaning.

4. What are LG ovens made of?

The material used in the oven interiors depends on the manufacturer. Some use stainless steel, while some use porcelain or ceramic. It’s important to know the material of your oven. After all, the type of cleaning agents you use will heavily depend on the material.

5. What is the steam clean feature of LG ovens?

The steam clean feature works for minor spills and spots under which the cleaning is scheduled at a temperature lower than the temperature of standard self-clean. All you have to do is wait for the oven to cool down, pour a cup of water in the bottom and set the oven on Steam Clean.

It’ll take about 30 minutes for the cycle to complete. After that, you see the grime has softened up. You can wipe off the rest with a clean cloth.
