Got Tough stains in your oven? You don’t need harsh chemicals to get rid of them. Here’s my favorite simple oven cleaner…homemade-oven-cleaner

You’ll Need:
6 tbsp baking soda
6 tbs. hot steamy water
toothbrush or soft-bristle brush
sponge or cloth

Make a paste by combining the baking soda and water.

Apply it to the inside of the oven using the brush or soft cloth.

Allow the solution to sit overnight.

Scrub with brush until oven is clean.

Rinse with water and sponge until no traces of baking soda remain.

You don’t have to let it set overnight, let it set at least 5 minutes.

To Clean the Glass on the Oven Door

You’ll Need:
6 Tbs Baking Soda
1/2 c. water
2 Tbs Vinegar
spray bottle

Spread the Baking soda evenly over the oven door glass.

In a small spray bottle combine the baking soda and water, spray the baking soda until wet.

Scrub gently to remove grease and grime from the glass on the door.

Vacuum any excess baking soda up.

Wipe the glass with a clean damp cloth to remove any baking soda that remains. It’ll sparkle like the top of the Chrysler building (compliments of Miss Hannigan!!)

  1. This is great! My oven hasn’t been cleaned in a about a year. ( I don’t use it that much) but I noticed a lot of pizza residue in it and it started to smoke a bit.

    I tried your concoction and it worked fabulous. Sure beats store bought chemicals that kill your lungs.

    • If your oven is really, really dirty and this won’t budge anything, try adding vinegar into the mixture (for a max of 30 minutes) but please check if this is harmful to your particular oven (when mixed with bicarb.)

  2. I use baking soda all the time to clean. Suggested that to my boss at work and showed her how clean I could get the glass doors to the case. Takes the minerals spots off the metal cases too.

    I am allergic to some chemicals, so my cleaning supplies involve baking soda and vinegar. Cheaper too. When I burned something in the bottom of an old aluminum pan, I rinsed it out, put in some baking soda and water and put it on to boil..

    I had thought I would never use that pan again. I watched as the black just peeled and boiled off the pan.
