I was cleaning my kitchen this morning (Hello Saturday) and felt like the oven could use a little refresh. Hosting the holidays was tough on it and there we're plenty of drips and splatters needing attention.
I put together a little concoction using typical household ingredients and it worked perfectly:
1/4 c Dawn
1/2 c White Vinegar
1/2 c Baking Soda
Mix in a large bowl, as the baking soda will foam up when contacting the other ingredients. Blend with a fork.
Spread a thin layer on the bottom of your oven and inside the open oven door. Thin is important, since you'll be wiping out all that Dawn later and it's not like you can hose out your oven.
Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes and wipe clean with a damp rag. I use a piece of steel wool to give the inside of the glass door a little extra attention.
No harsh chemicals or smells and the oven looks great.
