So a few weeks ago my fabulous husband was cooking dinner for me. In his valiant efforts to create the perfect night, he spilled some of the sauce in the oven and forgot to clean it up. Later in the week, in preparing dinner for my family, I innocently checked on the casserole in the oven and was surprised to find clouds of smoke billowing out of the oven the second I opened it. Needless to say, we really needed to clean the oven! So we tried out this great DIY oven cleaner and it worked so well! Because it worked so well, I thought I would share it with you.
Oven Cleaner Paste
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon dish or castille soap
10 drops of lemon essential oil
How to Use
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl to form a paste.
Apply with a sponge and let it sit up to thirty minutes.
Wipe off with a clean cloth or sponge and water.
This was such an easy way to clean the oven! I am not the type of Mom that wants to invest a high amount of elbow grease, so the easier the better. All I had to do was apply it, walk away, play with my son for a while, then wipe it off.
Tip: To keep your oven clean, cover the oven racks with tin foil. This will make sure you’re always covered for spills.
Try this out and tell me what you think!
