How to clean your oven after a great Easter bake off?

Hence, its not surprising that the oven is one of the most essential appliances in the kitchen during Easter and is likely to suffer some wear and tear. With Easter being so close, we are just in time to give you some suggestions on how to restore your oven after its heavy use.

Leave this overnight on low heating mode or alternatively, spray the oven inside out with an oven cleaner and leave it overnight. Most of your job will be done by the time you wake up. You can even soak the baking trays with...
