Easy and Practical Oven Cleaning!

October 12, 2017

Cleaning the oven has to be one of the worst chores ever.  It doesn't help that the cleaner you can buy at the store smells horrific, too.  So what's a person to do who needs the oven cleaned but not with that nasty stuff?  There has to be a green solution.  Low and behold, there is one!  Pinterest to the rescue, with a solution that works, no crazy fails!


The Ingredients:


Dawn Dish Soap- 3-4 drops


4 T of Baking Soda


5 T of Vinegar


Juice of a lime or lemon -or- your favorite essential oil for cleaning (orange or peppermint maybe?)



Instructions (rocket science degree not required):


1- Mix the ingredients together.  ***Fair warning, SLOWLY mix the vinegar and baking soda, if you have ever made a volcano with kids, you can appreciate this will help decrease mess clean-up***


1.5- Add water if needed to make a thick paste


3-Pull the oven racks out and clean them in the sink


4-Place the resulting paste all over the oven, including the window, you can use a rag, scrubbing pad, even a basting brush if you want.




5-Wait.  This might be the easiest or the hardest part.  Close the oven door and walk away.  If it can sit overnight, that is best, but give it at least 3-4 hours.


6-With a damp rag or sponge, wipe our oven out, you will have to rinse the rag or sponge several times.  You could fill a bowl with warm water if you're sitting on the floor to rinse the rag, but you will probably need to change the water a few times.




7-Revel in the beauty of your now clean oven!
