If you are like me, your oven occasionally (or once a week in my case) gets burnt on food on the bottom, splattered food on the sides, or dried food stuck on the rack.
Then, I walk away, and leave the baking soda there for a few hours (with the oven off, unless you want to see some amateur special effects… I don’t recommend this!) After a few hours I simply wipe up the paste with a cloth and all the grime comes with it. For really baked on grime, this may take a couple applications, but it always works and it is 100% natural!
Method One: The easiest, yet slower, method is to leave a layer of the baking soda paste over the surface of the oven for 12 to 24 hours. Then wet it later and scrub off. Over time, the baking soda will loosen the debris, making it easy to wipe away.
That is why this particular tip is one of my favorites because it is so easy, cheap and natural!
