If your kitchen countertop toaster oven looks like it needs a good cleaning, follow this easy tip to make it sparkle inside. First, never use a scouring sponge or scrubbing pad; it may help loosen grease and grime, but it can scratch the coating inside and cause permanent damage. Also, do not use oven cleaner; it’s toxic and it’s not designed to be used on aluminum. Instead, use a mixture of warm water, a few drops of liquid dish soap and white vinegar. A soft sponge and microfiber towel (and some elbow grease) will clean up the inside and door in just a few minutes.
