Things to tackle included tiles, tile sealant and the oven.
I find that tiles get really grubby and need regular degreasing. I have just bought a Vax V5 steam cleaner and wanted to try this out on the tiles. I bought a refurbished one, as it was cheaper, and it works just like new. The steamer worked well to help loosen the grease and dirt.
All the tile sealant has disintegrated and gone mouldy. I scrapped of all the old sealant, steam cleaned to get rid of any grime and resealed with uni bond. The trick to getting this neat is definitely to use an old credit card to scrape the excess sealant away.
We were very lucky when we moved in and our landlady bought us a new oven. However, I have been a bit bad at regularly cleaning it. In fact, I am pretty embarrassed at this picture! I spent several hours scrubbing at this with the steamer, lemon juice, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar in an attempt to be green and then resorted to Oven Pride. On my goodness it is amazing! I could see it working on the oven door immediately. After two hours the oven looks brand new with only minimal scrubbing. I'm all for green solutions but until something great is discovered I am afraid I will be using this.
