In this age of life hacks and cleaning gurus, we love learning new ways to get our house looking the best it possibly can.
We recently discovered an easy way to fix up our old stained baking trays, using a 2p trick and now we’ve seen a woman completely transform her filthy oven for just £1.
A Tiktok user named Ellie Bav shared exactly how she got her oven looking sparkling and good as new once more after her old housemates moved out.
The oven had been left in a right state, with grease stains and a thick layer of dirt all over the glass door, but Ellie knew exactly how to solve the problem.
To clean the door, she simply used a tub of The Pink Stuff cleaning paste, which is currently available for just £1 from Wilko.
She applied the paste to the glass, using a wire scourer, getting it all over the muck.
The paste is left on the door for a little while to work its magic before Ellie wipes it all off with a cloth.
The final result is one very clean oven door that’s good as new. You’d never have known how gross it once was.
Ellie’s video went viral, being watched over 100,000 times and garnering thousands of likes.
One person couldn’t believe how dirty the oven was, commenting: “Omg I thought it was an oven tray and not the actual oven door.”
Another said: “The Pink Stuff actually makes me emotional it’s so amazing.”
A third replied that the transformation made their “jaw drop”.
Someone else wrote: “Wait, what?!!! Yup, I need this stuff…”
However, others were concerned about using the scourer and The Pink Stuff on the glass.
A different user warned: “Hey, just a shout that if you use it a lot on the oven door, apparently it can shatter the glass cause of how abrasive, but this was satisfying af.”
There have been previous reports of women’s oven doors shattering during cooking after they’ve been cleaned with cream cleaners and scourers. Some claim this is because abrasive items can weaken the glass.
The Pink Stuff’s description says it’s “mildly abrasive” and is ok to use on cookers, but you should always test it out on a small patch before using.
It reads: “A tough cleaning paste that is gentle on surfaces but tough on stains. Ideal for cleaning saucepans, barbecues, ceramic tiles, glass, rust, sinks, uPVC, garden furniture, paintwork, boats, cooker tops, copper and much more. The Pink Stuff is a great all-round cream cleaner.
“The Pink Stuff is a mildly abrasive paste cleaner and should be used with care. Always test on inconspicuous area. Apply using a soft cloth or sponge. Rub gently before rinsing off with clean water. Polish with a clean dry cloth.”
