Yesterday I saw this oven cleaner YouTube video. It looked great so I thought I would give it a shot.
Guess what. It actually worked. And there are pictures to prove it.
Now before you go trying it, there are some things you should know.
1) My oven doesn't go down to 100 degrees and yours might not either. The lowest temperature is 170 on mine, and it seemed to work fine.
2) The glass part was harder to clean. I ended up getting a scrubber to get it done quicker. So there was some elbow grease, but nothing I couldn't handle. Maybe rubbing the baking soda/vinegar mixture on the glass before baking makes it more effective. I'll try that next time.
3) Getting the baking soda completely off the oven took a lot more wiping than I anticipated-until I got smart. I used the vinegar by itself to wipe up, and it came out much better and faster.
4) I put orange, lemon, or grapefruit rinds (pick one per jug of vinegar) in my vinegar. I do this for two reasons. The first is because it cuts that vinegar smell by a huge amount, and the second is because the oils from the citrus rind help the cleaning power and streak free effects of the vinegar. As a bonus, while the mixture was baking, there was a light orange scent released in the house which was really lovely.
See the YouTube video below for how to do it.
