How to Spring Clean Your Oven Naturally

Day 11, Oven

Among the most dreaded household chores is cleaning the oven. The awful fumes and repeated scrubbing are enough to make you leave your oven dirty for years. However, we have an easy solution: baking soda and water. Whether you spray your oven with water and then pour on the baking soda or vice versa, the point is to create a thick paste. Leave it overnight, and you can wipe your oven clean with a damp sponge in the morning.


For your oven to remain clean, be sure to place a sheet of aluminum foil beneath your pans to catch drippings in the future. Of course, wipe up any spills immediately.
