Cleaning Your Oven
Unsurprisingly, cleaning the oven was once voted the UK’s most hated household chore! Thankfully the Marigold scourer range is specially designed to make the job easier.
- Oven racks are the easiest part to clean. Simply remove the racks and soak for an hour in a sink full of ot water and 250g of dissolved soda crystals.. Then use the Marigold Scrub Away Heavy Duty Scourer to wipe away any dirt or grime.
- Lasting as long as five spirals, this flat scourer is tough enough to remove burnt-on dirt, whilst still being able to retain its shape. Being flat means it’s easier than ever to get in those hard-to-reach corners and crevices, for an even more thorough clean!
- When it comes to the glass oven door, start by rubbing a paste of icarbonate of soda and water directly onto the glass.. Leave for 15-20 minutes then wipe off with a Marigold Cleaning Me Softly Non Scratch Scourer.. The abrasive side will help to break up and lift away dirt without scratching,* whilst the foam backed side can be used to rinse away the remnants with soapy water.
- For an extra-special, streak-free clean, we’d recommend giving the inside and outside of your glass oven door a once over with our Marigold Squeaky Clean Microfibre Cloth,, to give the glass an extra sparkle!
- To clean the inside of your oven, we’d always advise turning off the mains and laying out some newspaper or old towels on the floor to catch any fall away dirt. Be sure to have a Marigold Wiper Upper Multi-Purpose Cloth handy to get rid of any loose food and debris.
- Our recipe for a gleaming oven? Stir together half a cup of baking soda with three tablespoons of water until it forms a paste which can be easily spread (but please note that large ovens may require more paste). Wipe this paste all over your oven with a washing up brush, cloth or scourer, leave overnight, then wipe away with a damp cloth. The Marigold Let It Shine! Microfibre Cloths are perfect for these occasions.
Cleaning Your Barbecue
Cleaning the barbecue may not be a task you have to do often, but it’s still important to give your barbecue a thorough clean after use.
- The barbecue grill is the toughest area to clean. The Marigold Scrub Away Heavy Duty Scourer is the ideal companion for this job, as it removes hard to remove dirt from the grill, without the need for too much elbow grease!
- Another Marigold top tip? Use white vinegar as an alternative to stainless steel cleaner by filling up a leftover spray bottle with half white vinegar and half water. Spray it over the grill and wait five minutes before heading in with a scourer.
- Once your barbecue is cool, tip away any leftover ash straight away. Did you know that leaving the ash will allow it to collect moisture, making it harder for you to clean later? Use a damp cloth, such as a Marigold Oops Away All-Purpose Cloth, to wipe away the final bits.
- Finally, give the base and exterior a good wash using warm water and washing-up liquid, paired with a Marigold Cleaning Me Softly Non Scratch Scourer, which will remove any stubborn dirt without scratching more delicate surfaces.*
Cleaning Your Microwave
With microwaves being one of the most commonly used household appliances, it’s no wonder they get messy quickly. Here are some ways Marigold can help.
- Combine one cup of water with lemon, lime or orange slices in a microwave safe bowl. Place in the microwave and shut the door before turning on your microwave to a high power for several minutes - until the mixture boils and the window steams up (make sure you keep an eye on the mixture, and don’t leave it in for too long!) Cool for five minutes, remove the bowl, and wipe down the insides with a Marigold Let It Shine! Microfibre Cloth.
- For the door, use the abrasive side of a Marigold Cleaning Me Non Softly Non Scratch Scourer to scrub away any stubborn dirt.* Use a mixture of water with a little baking soda to do so. Rinse out your scourer, dampen, and use the foam backed side to wipe down.
