Customer Question

I am really hoping someone can help please.
I was rather silly in letting my partner do a pyro clean on my oven. He was meant to clean the top oven which had been cleared of all shelves, pots etc, however he started the pyro on the bottom oven which still contained pots baking trays etc with rubber/plastic handles.
I was left with an oven covered in about 5mm of a white substance which resembled fake spray snow. I have managed to remove this however the whole oven is left with a white bloom all over it. I am pretty sure this could be removed with fine wire wool and a lot of elbow grease; however I am worried that this may compromise the coating on the oven.
My questions are, Is there anything I can use that would remove the white bloom?
If I run another pyro clean would the high temperature further set the white bloom on the oven making it harder to remove?
If the white bloom can not be removed is it safe to still use the oven?
Many thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

OK first things first, you will be able to use the oven irrespective of the white bloom. On the point of using wire wool, that is a big NO, if you do this you will destroy the cat coating. What I would do at this stage is put it through another cat cleaning stage and see if that reduces the bloom.
