Homemade Oven Cleaner (Only 2 Natural Ingredients)
Guest Post By Megan
If there’s one thing that makes me nervous, it’s the smell of something burning in the oven. Pizza, potatoes, and baking mishaps can result in drippage on the heating elements of an electric oven. Crumbs and juices fall to the bottom of the oven and just bake there…repeatedly…as in every time the oven is turned on.
In the past, I’ve used chemical oven cleaner which worked okay, but it smells like chemicals. I have also used hot water, baking soda, and a putty knife to scrape the oven ever so carefully. I’ve never thought to try vinegar until I saw a recent post on Facebook by a friend. It was too tempting not to try it.
The key players in oven cleaning are: baking soda and vinegar.
1. Sprinkle baking soda all over the bottom of the oven.
2. Pour vinegar (don’t overdo it) on top of baking soda.
3. Close the oven door and let sit for 4 hours.
4. Wipe away with rags.
After a simple wiping I noticed a dramatic difference. It’s not perfect, but it’s much better with little effort.
Then I used a putty knife to scrape away some of the really baked on stuff, but I didn’t spend much time working on this. I have children to chase, afterall. 🙂
This is a guest post, but I have to say I tried this too and it worked for me! I was very impressed. (Please refer to your oven manual before using this cleaning method)
