Cleaning an oven without chemicals is not only an eco-friendly alternative, but it also ensures a safer cooking environment for you and your family. Over time, ovens accumulate dirt, grime, and stubborn grease stains that can affect the flavor of your food. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with some simple and effective methods to keep your oven squeaky clean.-
First, remove the oven racks and soak them in warm soapy water while you tackle the inside of the oven. Use a damp cloth to wipe away loose debris, then make a paste by mixing baking soda and water. Apply this paste to the interior surfaces, avoiding the heating elements, and let it sit overnight. In the morning, it’s time to scrub away the grime using a non-abrasive scrub brush or sponge. Rinse the surfaces thoroughly with clean water and dry them with a soft cloth.-
Next, let’s not forget about the oven door. Often forgotten, it can accumulate layers of greasy smudges that can be tough to remove. Create a paste from baking soda and water, then apply it to the door and let it sit for 15 minutes. Gently scrub the paste with a sponge or damp cloth, paying extra attention to any stubborn spots. Rinse the door with water and dry it with a clean cloth, revealing a shiny, smudge-free surface.
