Mother always used amonia in the oven, and a few drops in the water when she did the floor, but i didnt have any joy finding amonia anywhere.

Sorry Cathy, not sure what you mean by a chandlers store. The only sort of "chandlers store" that I can think of is a marine chandlery which obviously sells things for boats.

Is that what you mean or are you thinking of something else?

ammonia is great for floors but not if its polished cos it will strip the polish off, great if you want to take the old polish off though

Default Astonish Oven & Cookware Paste

Try using Astonish Oven & Cookware Paste. I use this and its fabulous. Easy to use, no awful smell and really does give Astonishing results.

I saw this other thread on the forum regarding the paste. Read it and see what everybody else says.

"Saw this Astonishing cleaner on GMTV commercial this morning"

Unfortunately will not let me post link as I am a new user.

It is currently being advertised on GMTV in a morning.

I bought it from Wilkinsons. Very cheap and lasts ages. (Costs less than a bottle of amonia) Also available in most 99p stores or pound shops

Also thought someone might be intrested in the "how clean is your house " website with Kim and Aggie , as it has helpful tiips on there to get rid of things with videos [ most cleaning stuff you already have in the house }
Although I picked up teh book from a charity shop and found that quite helpful .

saves all that cash on Mr Muscle

be careful of the fumes though

wear a mask and ventilate the room when your mixing the ammonia

horrible stuff but very effective

and cheap

;D
This might sound stupid but you don't wipe the solution over the oven, you just leave it in a bowl & the fumes do the work?

Actually I dont think you can use the forum to post comments about a firm...............true or false.

I think it is easier and less likely to ingest the amonia is to put all the oven shelves in a double black bag, pour in half a tea cup of ammonia and then leave knotted bag outside overnight. Next day you can sluice down the shelves with a hose and most of the gunge comes off quite well.

I've taken it that you just let the fumes do the work...

I have a very dirty oven that needs some love

not sure OP will reply....this thread is 6 years old

Thumbs up Oven Mate!

I have tried all sorts of methods - including the amonia. I found it hard to use as it really does smell! I placed the mixture in a bowl in the oven overnight and it did work but not great. I have since been using 'Oven Mate' its 3.90 fro Asda and one bottle usually lasts me 2 cleans. I have found the best method it to use is - an old paintbrush to coat the sides of the oven and then put the silver racks into the bag once I have coated them in the mixture. I then leave it overnight. Then I use a portable steam cleaner to whizz round the inside of the oven and then give it a wipe over with a cloth and it leaves it like new. If you dont have a steamer you just wipe it clean. Hope this helps!

Fairy power spray works quite well, just spray it on and leave it for 30 mins then wipe off, sometimes takes a few do's but gets there and doesn't whiff too bad.
TBH I think it's ammonia in this.

Years ago I used to use an oven pad (caustic soda paste in a self dispensing pad thing I think) but I haven't seen it for years.
I keep on top of it now with the power spray coz I hate the whole fiasco.
Seriously, I't medievil isn't it?
