I don't know about you but cleaning the oven is one household job that I really, really dislike doing. The awkward scrubbing, burnt on stains that won't come off no matter how much you scrub and that awful chemical cleaner smell.....yuck! The whole process just stressed me out!
But not anymore!! I found an AWESOME way to clean my oven without scrubbing and without having to breathe in that nasty chemical smell!!
What did I use??? Baking Soda!!! I know...can you believe it?? Making a simple baking soda paste and leaving it on my oven for 12 hours is the secret recipe for a sparkling clean oven!
Before you start to clean your oven, make sure you have at least 12 good hours to let the mixture sit! Very Important! I put the paste on my oven Saturday evening and leave it on overnight.
Put baking soda in a bowl and add water a little at a time. The paste must be thick enough to spread. If you add too much water the paste will be too runny and it will not work as well.
Spread the paste all over your oven. The sides, bottom, I even put the paste on the window of the oven. Just mix up more paste if you need it. Leave the paste on for a least 12 hours or more! Wipe the oven with a damp cloth or sponge.
**I was completely amazed at how clean my oven was after the 12 hours! I could actually see through the window of my oven again! I almost didn't want to use the oven, because it was so clean!!
