Clean your Oven without Harsh Chemicals
A Hack on How to Clean your Oven
- Mix about a cup of baking soda with a few spoonfuls of water to form a paste.
- Remove racks from oven.
- Spread paste over oven walls, the oven door and bottom of the oven, avoiding the heating elements. Leave for a few hours – ideally overnight.
- Use a damp cloth to wipe out the now dried mixture and gently use a plastic scraper for any difficult areas.
- Once done add some vinegar to a spray bottle and apply to any remaining baking soda, again avoiding the heating elements. The baking soda will react with the vinegar and foam.
- Wipe away the foam and repeat until all the residue is gone and you have a sparkling shine.

A similar process can be applied as mentioned above to the oven racks by placing them on baking foil on a work service. Both sides of the racks may need doing.
