Homemade Oven Cleaner

I'll be the first to admit I hate, I absolutely hate cleaning the oven. I have never found a cleaner that don't take my breath away and also actually cut the grease and grim. So, I just wipe up and go on. Well till now because I was on Pinterest last evening and came across a simple cleaner made right in my kitchen. No harmful smells that would send me gagging and in labored breathing to find fresh air.

So here's an easy way to clean your oven glass and the oven with no harmful toxins. This is a no brainer that I'm happy to share with you.

I wish I would of took a picture before I started but I was too eager to see if this really does work. You can just guess how bad the door was if you just take a peak at the inside of the oven. So what is that on the door you ask? 

Homemade Oven Cleaner

1/4 cup Baking Soda

In a bowl add 1/4 cup of Baking Soda together with just enough water to make it soupy. 

Rub gently on oven surface and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes.

To remove take a damp wash cloth rub in circles to remove grease and grim. For stubborn spots use a scouring pad.

See it really does work. I had to use some elbow grease also but it was so worth it. I ran out of baking soda so I couldnt finish the oven. But, I will after I go to the store to get a new supply.

Let me know if you liked using this better than those chemical cleaners.

  1. Another really nice diy cleaner I use around the house:

    Take orange peels and fill a mason jar with them. Fill the rest of the jar with vinegar. Tighten the lid and let it sit for 7-10 days. Then strain it and use your new orange scented cleaner! :)

  2. Commercial stainless steel ovens usually operate at intense temperatures for hours and anything that spills generally sticks.

  3. I wonder if this way will work on my oven door as my door is much worse that your picture... everyday for the last few months I have been looking at my oven and wanting to sort it out. I almost called in oven cleaner sheffield to do it for me. If your way fails I won't have a choice but to call them in.

    Wish my luck!
