How To Effectively Clean Your Oven Without Using Chemicals
Everyone has a least favorite household chore. I know this might seem random, but I detest cleaning the oven. We don’t have a microwave, so we use our oven multiple times a day. Because of this, it’s the appliance in my home that gets dirty the fastest. Also, ovens are just a pain to clean. They’re awkward, and they’re always covered in dirt, grime, and burnt food. However, this genius method for cleaning your oven will make you dislike the chore a lot less!
According to Newsner, there are two steps for cleaning your oven. The first is to clean the oven itself, and the second is to clean the glass.
To clean your oven, you will need:
A small bowl
Step 1: Remove the oven racks.
Step 2: Mix a couple spoons of baking soda with some water in the bowl. The goal is to mix it into a paste that’s easily spreadable on the surfaces that need cleaning.
Step 3: Spread the paste on the inside of the oven. The baking soda will turn brown.
Step 4: Let it sit overnight. The baking soda will need at least 12 hours to work its magic.
Step 5: The day after: Take a wet rag and wipe out as much of the baking soda as possible.
Step 6: Put some vinegar in the spray bottle and spritz it on the surfaces where you still see residues of baking soda.
Step 7: Wipe with a wet rag.
Step 8: Put the racks back into the oven.
Step 9: Turn on the oven on a low temperature for 15-20 minutes to let it dry.
For the window glass:
Take the baking soda and add some water to get a thick paste. Apply the paste on the window. Let sit for 30 minutes. Use a rag to wipe the window clean.
