Again I have to ask why?

Once the oven heats up all the mortar crud just falls off......

Hi Alan

Seems a number of guys have cleaned the inside of their ovens and I have noticed a lot of dust on the inside of my walls. Also if its done it needs doing now before I construct the front landing area.

I do understand your perspective maybe i'm just being fussy.

Now the question I asked was do I use vinegar or is there something else that people have used.

Gudday Colin
I'm glad to hear about the top two rows being off .
We're are talking about an enclosed space here. Lack of ventilation means that a build up of fumes,Carbon dioxide etc can change what you breathing into a deadly soup, regardless of the oxygen level.
I know your particular, but firing you oven will do the cleaning for you,the inside will be a pearly white after a good firing anyway.
Regards dave

Thanks Dave will consider both Alan and your comments and concerns.

But I have to ask why is it that everyone is sticking there heads in their ovens. What the hell are they doing in there then. Getting high?

I MUST KNOW

Colin,

I was considering cleaning the inside of the oven and asked the same question a year ago. I believe both Brickie and Tscar said don't bother and I did not and never looked back. Believe me once the curing and cooking starts the looks of the inside of the dome are a long ways down the list. Spend your energies elsewhere. IMHO.

Thanks russell

So what were you doing inside the oven. Was that just because you could. ?

I ground a couple high spots on the bricks and some mortar tucking I had to do when I tried the disk method near the plugging.

Arrrrhhh that explains it. thanks Russell.

You didnt clean the dust off [ because grinding creates dust ] at all? or vacuum your walls.

For those in Australia that dont know about available oven tools [for those of us that are lazy and dont wish to build our own] i found this the other day looking for Ceramic Glaze.

Clayworks Woodfired Oven Accessories

Check it out. I have requested a pricelist.

But then again the fun is in making them ourselves.

I went into my oven for as short a period as humanly possible, only to clean the snots off the last two courses that there was no way I could clean from the outside.

Beyond that, I say run a shop vac around it when you're done, give it a blast with a blower to get the last bits out - and fire will do the rest!
