The world of internet tricks and hacks never ceases to amaze me. The creativity and ingenuity of people browsing the web often transform into truly impressive, practical advice. Can you separate egg yolk from egg white using garlic? No problem. And that's just a tiny example of the mind-boggling TikTok hacks out there.

The trick we're talking about today also originated on the internet. The author is unknown, as is the case with most viral content, but one thing is certain: this is quite unique. Sounds simple? It certainly is. Completely obvious? Definitely. Moreover, is it revolutionary in its simplicity? Absolutely. Let's talk about how you can use a two-zloty coin to clean your oven.

Oven cleaning with a coin

We're sure you'll agree there's nothing worse than a messy oven. Grease stains are just part of the problem; the real issue is the dried, burnt food. Melted cheese sticking to the oven's walls can be a nightmare to remove. The automatic cleaning functions offered by newer ovens, while handy, consume a lot of energy and can be quite expensive.

You might be wondering what a windmill has to do with gingerbread or, in this case, what a coin has to do with an oven. Well, the idea is to use the coin as a scraper. Firstly, spray the oven thoroughly with a cleaning agent. Once the grime has softened (which takes about 10 minutes), use a coin to scrape off the stubborn, previously hard-to-remove oven dirt.

The embossed pattern of the coin will make your dirty oven problem disappear, saving you unnecessary stress. After all, a shiny, clean kitchen is vital for a pleasant cooking experience, isn't it?
