Grill And Oven Cleaner
A LOW FUME, NON-CAUSTIC, POWERFUL CLEANER WITHOUT THE TOXINS
Oven cleaners are some of the most caustic, dangerous cleaning products used in the home. This product replaces highly toxic, caustic, and fuming oven cleaners without sacrificing performance. It also works great on the outdoor grill!
RESTORE NATURALS Grill & Oven Cleaner is specially formulated to provide an effective cleaning solution without the use of harmful ingredients. This product is a versatile choice for individuals who do not have a self-cleaning oven, as it can be applied to various surfaces, including the inside oven walls, grates, and the inside oven door, as well as outdoor grills.
It's essential to note that RESTORE NATURALS Grill & Oven Cleaner has a relatively high pH level, ranging from 11 to 12. This high alkalinity is a key feature that aids in breaking down and removing tough grease stains without relying on toxic petroleum-based solvents. However, always wear protective gloves and be vigilant about avoiding contact with your skin and eyes.
DIRECTIONS: Apply ready-to-use product on grill, stovetop or oven surface. Let sit for 10-30 minutes, lightly scrub with fine steel wool or non-scratch pad and wipe clean with water. Repeat if necessary for stubborn baked-on grease. For sensitive skin, protect with gloves.
While RESTORE NATURALS Grill & Oven Cleaner comes in a convenient spray bottle, it's advisable to consider pouring it into a smaller container and using a brush or sponge to apply it to the intended surfaces. This approach not only minimizes the product's contact with the air but also ensures thorough coverage.
While the convenience of a self-cleaning oven is appealing, there are important considerations to bear in mind before initiating the cleaning process. Firstly, the self-cleaning cycle subjects the oven to extremely high temperatures, often reaching up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit for a duration of 4 to 6 hours. This level of heat can potentially cause damage to various components of the oven. To put it in perspective, the energy consumed during this process is sufficient to power an average household's oven for an entire month. Moreover, the self-cleaning cycle generates noxious fumes as it burns off food residue and interacts with the oven's enamel walls. These fumes can be particularly irritating and may pose health concerns, especially for individuals with respiratory issues, children, and pets.
For those considering self-cleaning their ovens, here are some safety tips to follow. Initially, it's advisable to open windows to facilitate proper ventilation and disperse the off-gassing fumes. The principle here is that the best approach to mitigating pollution is through dilution. Additionally, in accordance with the owner's manual, it is recommended to remove stainless-steel grates before initiating the self-cleaning process. However, it's important to note that cleaning these grates can be a challenging task.
When it comes to selecting a suitable cleaner for oven or grill grates, it's crucial to scrutinize product labels. Many commercial oven cleaners contain a variety of chemicals and carcinogens that can pose significant health risks when inhaled. These substances may include butane, monoethanolamine, diethylene glycol monobutyl ether, sodium hydroxide, butoxydiglycol, and diethanolamine, among others. As pointed out by Samara Geller, a senior research analyst for the Environmental Working Group, the warnings found on these cleaner labels serve as a clear indication of their potential to cause harm. These chemicals can result in skin and eye burns, visual impairment, and corrosion of the respiratory tract. The fumes emitted during the cleaning process have the potential to worsen or trigger asthma attacks and have been documented as capable of causing asthma in individuals.
