I feel like I divulge a ton of secrets on my blog that I normally would be mortified to do so to my friends. So, to keep on trend, here's another. I have never cleaned my oven. Nope. Lived in my house for 7 years now and have yet to clean it. Well, that was until last week. The reason? There are a few. First off, I never felt comfortable using harsh chemicals in a place that I cook food. Second, I remember my mom cleaning the oven with the built in method where it gets like 500 degrees for hours on end and just burns it off. I hated how hot it made the house, and truthfully, I never even really remembered to do it this way until my mom suggested it a few months back. And the real and finally reason...out of sight, out of mind. I use the oven once a day or so, maybe, but the only time I remember that I need to clean it was when I opened it. Then I would shut it, and totally forget. And I guess, that probably meant the real reason was that I didn't care that much lol.
Anyway, I did realize one thing this past week though...when you have guests coming to visit for an extended amount of time, you start to realize how dirty your house really is. So, this became an obvious issue that I needed to address :)
