How To Clean Your Oven Naturally In Just A Few Minutes!

How to clean your oven naturally in just a few minutes using things you probably already have at home

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 :)

All I used was a stainless steel ball, baking soda and some water!

 I didn't realize how easy this could be or else I would have done it years ago, and kept doing it. I haven't been able to see inside my oven for goodness knows how long, so I first started with cleaning the glass. I squirted some water out of a rag onto the glass, then poured a layer of baking soda.

I then took the stainless steel ball and started to scrub. I didn't have to scrub hard at all. It was coming off so easily, it was crazy! I had tried to clean this glass a few months ago with just a rag and didn't get no where. It didn't clean off anything. So, I definitely know that the stainless steel ball makes all the difference!

Here's just one minute of scrubbing can do to the glass. Amazing!

 After I cleaned this glass and the door, I was like "This makes me so happy!" and my little 3 year old says "No mommy, not happy" points inside the oven "dirty". haha.

 Yes...it was very dirty. I was content with the window being cleaned! But, I decided to see how easy it would be to scrub this clean.

 It did take a few minutes, but it came clean with the same method. It was just a little awkward getting into the corners and crevices. But, it came clean with a little effort.

So, this was just using baking soda and hot water with the stainless steel ball. I have read that if you put a baking soda and vinegar mix onto the oven, and let it sit, that it may come up easier. But, I didn't want to wait for it to sit and I was out of vinegar. So, I would say this method works wonderfully just as is :)

  2. I like this idea. Did you clean the oven racks the same way? I hate cleaning the racks most of all.

  3. Thanks for the tip. I've tried the vinegar & baking soda and wasn't impressed. I'll definitely be looking for a stainless steal ball to try.

  6. First of all...thanks for being so honest! That could have been pictures of my oven. It is not a fun job. I have tried lots of things, some work and some don't, but I will give this a try. I love using natural things and not chemicals.

  7. If you don't want to scrub you can just leave the vinegar and the baking soda to soak for one night in your oven. On the next morning, heat up your oven for 15 min and all will be forgotten. No scrubbing and cleaned to perfection.
