When you turn on your oven to preheat, does your home fill with the scent of casseroles past? If so then it is probably time to clean your oven. The thought of grabbing a sponge, getting on your hands and knees and scrubbing away using harsh chemicals with overwhelming fumes, would make most people say, “forget it”. Well, here are a few natural remedies for cleaning your oven, without having to use harsh chemicals.
1. “Baking Soda”- Make a paste out of equal parts baking soda and water. Spread the paste on the oven and let sit overnight. You don’t even have to scrub.
2. “Vinegar”- Fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray the inside of the oven (spray a decent amount). Let it sit for about 2-3 hours, then simply remove using warm water.
Many ovens are now self-cleaning ovens. If you happen to have one of these ovens, make regular use of the self-cleaning cycle to burn off left over grease and grime, and you won’t have to clean as often.
