How To Remove Years Of Grease And Grime From Your Oven
We use our oven once or twice a day, every single day. Try as I might to stay on top of cleaning it, constant use means that grease, grime, and food debris builds up pretty quickly. And cleaning the oven is no easy feat! Fortunately, there are a few tried and true methods and products that will help you tackle cleaning the oven without putting in a ton of time or effort.
Baking Soda And Vinegar
Baking soda and vinegar is a mighty, natural combination that can be used to clean so many things. To clean your oven, inside and out, start by making a paste using baking soda and a small amount of water. Remove the racks from the inside of your oven and apply the paste to all inside surfaces. You can also apply the paste to the top, exterior part of your oven – just be sure to avoid the heating elements. Let the paste sit for a few hours, then use a soft-medium bristle brush to tackle any stubborn grease and grime. Then, use a damp cloth to wipe up the baking soda paste. Your oven will be sparkling clean!
