Self Cleaning oven – does it need to be pulled out from the wall?

Friday, December 31st, 2010

Self cleaning oven get soooo hot when it is cleaning, is it safe on al sides? Or does it need to be moved out into a more open space? I know this sounds dumb, but dh and I have different ideas, I think it is fine where it is.

They would tell you to pull it out if you had to. What about built in ovens that are self cleaning – you would not be able to pull them out would you. Stop worrying, if it is your dh then do it when he is not around.

Do you have to pay for cleaning your room? How often do they do it?
How does the whole thing work?

You have to clean your own room. They have housekeepers to clean the common areas (hallways, bathrooms, etc) but they will not clean your room.

ty in advance for your answers

Steam! that is what the professionals use
I have a little thing called "the shark" it is a portable steam generator with a hose and some attachments. Works fantastic on everything. We even cleaned dirty grout between the tiles under the fridge, and it was basically black
Good Luck

How can I make my old windows smear free?

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

At the back of the house I have some old windows which I find very differcult to clean…. they always seem to have smears…. even if I use the best window cleaner…any tips?

Use vinegar, it is acidic and will cut through the grease. Spray on or apply with paper towel, then wipe again with a wet cloth. Finish with a dry soft cloth. Wipe up and down on the inside and back and forth on the outside, that way if there are any streaks left, you will see what side they are on..
If you try this and they still look smeared then it’s possible the seal is broken between the panes themselves and that is causing it.
Good luck! :)

Can i wipe the inside of a self-cleaning oven with a damp cloth to clean small messes?

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Should I wait until it cools, or while its still a bit warm? I’ve never had a self-cleaning oven before.

Sure. Self cleaning ovens don’t clean every time you use them – only when you set them to the cleaning cycle. Wiping up small spills between the long cleaning cycles is a good practice so you don’t have to set the oven to clean very often.

Whether the oven is cold or still a bit warm when you wipe it out is a matter of personal preference.


To set up the self-clean cycle remove the wire racks, lock the oven door using the lever just beneath the front edge of the stove top, and turn the oven temperature knob to "Clean".

The oven wil heat up to about 800-900 degrees to burn up any stubborn stuck on spills and the process takes anywhere from 3-6 hours depending on the oven manufacturer. After the oven is done (on some models the lock lever will disengage automatically) and has cooled sufficiently there may still be a light ashy residue to wipe out with a damp sponge or dishcloth.

Where can I post ads for Housekeeping?

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

I have been cleaning apartments and houses for the past 4 months but I have been getting clients by word of mouth. I have posted on craigslist & backpage but I am in desperate need of more clientele. If you know of any other online classifieds please let me know. I am in the Houston area.

You can’t put them in mail boxes. That is against the law to open anyone’s mail box unless you work for the post office. Post your ads on apartment bulletin boards around the Houston area. Check with your local Realators and let them know about your business, they are always looking for someone to clean up houses for them that are on the market to sell. If you have a Military Base near you, go talk to housing and get your name there as people are always moving and need their house cleaned (been there done that). Check in your area for suppliment papers that are mailed out and put your ad in there.
Good Luck..Hope this helps..
