MY DAUGHTER IS GETTING READY TO MOVE INTO A HOUSE AND THE STOVE

This answer was rated:

MY DAUGHTER IS GETTING READY TO MOVE INTO A HOUSE AND THE STOVE IS A SELF CLEANING OVEN AND FOR SOME REASON THE PEOPLE USED OVEN CLEANER . WILL THIS HARM THE OVEN? ALSO, IS IT DANGEROUS OR TOXIC?

Tim Alan :

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX can help you with your issue.

Tim Alan :

It won't harm the oven, it should be wiped clean with plain water to get rid of all the cleaner

Tim Alan :

It could be toxic if breathed in or digested in large quantities

Tim Alan :

It's more of an irritant

Customer:

The oven has a white residue so I am assuming that is the dried cleaner. Thank you.

Tim Alan :

If it's used properly it shouldn't cause any problem, I would turn the oven on to it's highest setting and let it burn off with all the windows open if there is a lot of residue left on the inside of the oven

Tim Alan :

Yes that is probably what it is, try and clean it off as best as you can with just plain hot water and then run the oven to burn it off

Customer:

Ok, thanks.
