I picked this Verde casserole set up at Salvation army for $5. They had the smallest bowl with lid marked separately but they have it to me with the other 2, at the price of the smallest. Thank you Salvation Army!
Anyways I figured I would compare the cleaners I use most often and the one I hardly use. Oven cleaner, soap and water and orange cleaner.
1. Verde 473, yellowish in color. Major baked on grease. Dirty, worst of the 3.
2. Verde 474, yellow greenish color,. Minor baked on grease. Dirty, cleanest of the 3.
3. Verde 475, green color, Some weird white stuff on outside, inside baked on grease and something I have no clue what it is. Second worst of the 3.
I sprayed each with the receptive cleaning partners and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Then I gave them each a nice bath of just plain soap and warm water.
Worked great, could of used a little longer of a soak, most all grime is off.
Took a little of the grime off, dirt slipped right off
Didn't do a darn thing. A little dirt was taken off. Not the weird junk on the inside or the white stuff on the outside.
Conclusion: Oven cleaner works fast and better than just plain soap. And didn't hurt the shine of the Verde. Which is known to get DWD fast and not hold up that well.
Now since I did my little experiment I need to finish cleaning them for the cabinet. I sprayed them all with oven cleaner. This is the 475 after oven cleaner in the middle of it's bath. Yes the water is brown from whatever was on it. GROSS!
Ready for the cabinet, all nice and clean. That oven cleaner does the trick. By the way, wear rubber gloves when using oven cleaner and make sure to get them super clean in their bath!
|Perfect colors for my kitchen!|
|All clean and everything came off the inside of the largest one. Thank gosh.|
