"Make sure to use a degreaser as oils and fats can trap dirt efficiently. A friend swears by a simple dish soap along with an abrasive scrub - I've never cleaned an outdoor one before myself, so I'll just relay that and hopefully it helps!"

"You can use a pressure washer to blast any dirt off. Also if you don't have a pressure washer you can give it a good scrub with wire wool."

"Sure thing! Cleaning an outdoor pizza oven before putting it away for winter is a great idea. You can start by removing any leftover ash or debris from the oven. Then, use a brush or cloth to wipe down the interior and exterior surfaces. If there are any stubborn stains, you can create a paste with baking soda and water and gently scrub the affected areas. Finally, make sure to cover the oven with a waterproof cover to protect it from the elements. Happy cleaning and enjoy your pizza oven next summer! 🍕🔥"

"use a brush or scraper to remove any ash or debris from the interior and exterior surfaces. For stubborn stains, you can use a mixture of warm water and mild dish soap, along with a scrubbing brush or sponge. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that could damage the oven’s surfaces. Once clean, ensure the oven is completely dry before storing it in a dry, sheltered area to prevent rust or mold growth. If your oven has a cover, be sure to use it to provide additional protection during storage."
