EASY, NATURAL, STINK FREE OVEN CLEANING
I don't know about you, but oven cleaning is never at the top of my chore list. It is an annoying, time consuming job that requires a lot of scrubbing and the nasty smell of oven cleaners burning off your nose hairs.
There is a better way! I've discovered a super easy, smell free, natural way that does an incredible job at keeping my oven clean. I'm afraid there is no avoiding the inevitable bit of scrubbing, but this method has certainly reduced the time it takes to clean my oven. And, what's even more awesome, is that it is super cheap and only two ingredients needed....
The good 'ol trustworthy baking soda and white vinegar. I also like to add lemon to a lot of my cleaning, as it helps with deodorising and it has natural anti-bacterial properties.
Here are the simple steps to having a naturally clean oven:
Make a paste with 1 cup baking soda and 1/3 cup water, and then add enough white vinegar to make a thick paste. You can also add 1 tbsp of lemon juice if you want.
Remove wire racks. Using a soft cloth, wipe the paste onto the inside of your oven, being careful to not get too much around the fan area (otherwise you will cleaning dried baking soda off the bottom of your oven for months to come - yes, I am speaking from experience!). Let it sit for up to 24 hours.
Place an old towel in the bottom of your bath tub. Place your oven racks on top and fill the tub with hot water until it covers the racks. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup baking soda in the water, a good squirt of dishwashing liquid, and pour over about 2 cups of white vinegar. Let it sit for up to 24 hours before using a scouring cloth to clean.
Wipe out the inside of your oven with a damp soft cloth, and you are done!
