With the exception of one of the recipes below, you can make oven cleaners that are much safer for the environment than commercial products containing harsh chemicals. They’re also much more frugal!
#oven cleaning Tip 1
Fill a spray bottle with water and spray surface generously.
Generously sprinkle baking soda over the water. Leave overnight.
The next day wipe out much of the baking soda and grime.
Soak a sponge in hot water, squeeze out excess water and scrub away grime with liquid dish detergent first drizzled over the sponge.
#oven cleaning Tip2
Preheat to 200° then turn off.
In a heat safe glass dish, fill with ammonia and set on middle rack (about 1 to 2 cups of ammonia).
In another dish, fill with boiling water and set on bottom rack (2 cups).
The next morning, remove dishes and wipe down the inside with a hot wet sponge first drizzled with baking soda.
#oven cleaning Tip 3
3 tsp Borax
1/4 cup vinegar
1/8 cup liquid dish soap
2 cups hot water
Baking soda (do not add to mix)
Combine ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to mix.
Spray mixture generously to cover surface completely.
Sprinkle generous amounts of baking soda on top.
Spray liquid mixture over the baking soda.
The next morning wipe out the mixture and wash the surface with hot soapy water.
#oven cleaning Tip 4
1 cup baking soda
1/3 cup table salt
Spray surface well with water.
Mix together the dry ingredients then sprinkle over the water.
Spray again with water.
Leave overnight. Wipe out the next morning and wash with hot soapy water.
You can also use this softscrub for the next day’s scrubbing after using one of the methods above.
Place the racks in an extra large heavy-duty garbage bag, pour in a cup of ammonia and tie the bag closed (tightly).
Set the garbage bag outside away from children and pets.
The next day remove the racks and wash them in hot soapy water.
If they aren’t that grimy, you can choose instead to soak them in hot soapy water. Scrub with a baking soda and water paste.
