The other day I had a dish break in my oven. I couldn’t figure out why it smelled like something was burning? I mean, I was just cooking a chicken leg! When I opened the oven to pull it out I saw that my dish had broken in half. In half! I guess it went from hot to cool to hot and reacted? Anyways, I was left with a huge mess. It’s pretty gross. Do you want to see it?
I don’t think I’ve ever cleaned it, to be honest. But I had a turkey to cook and I didn’t want a smokey stinky kitchen for when guests were coming over. I also didn’t want to use chemicals. What was I to do? I googled and found that using water and baking soda would work. I thought, I’ll give it a try as I had Eco-Pioneer Baking Soda.
I used half a cup and added enough water to make a good medium thick mixture. I just went in and rubbed it everywhere!
Ideally it is recommended that you leave it overnight. I was getting a little impatient and I went at it about 8 hours later. I couldn’t help myself, lol but I left the back the oven to sit in the baking soda wash overnight. I just HAD to see if this worked. It wiped away pretty easily! I used J cloths and the Worlds best scrubber pad and a final wipe with paper towel.
I am sure if I left it for overnight it would be even more spotless, the door still needs more soaking and elbow grease but I gotta say, I am pretty pleased. Anyways, I just wanted to share what I was up to over the weekend. If your oven needs a wash, skip the chemicals and just get some baking soda and water!
Also!! I gave the oven racks a good soak in dish soap for 4 hours and they wiped off easily.
