Getting Your Oven Clean Without The Use Of Chemicals

Many of us nowadays prefer to clean home without the use of harsh chemicals, which can be harmful for our health, and the environment. But when it comes to ovens, we often turn to chemical based products in the hope that they will be able to get them spotlessly clean. What if there were some natural products that you could use instead, though?

How to get your oven clean, naturally:

To clean your oven, you may be surprised to know that you already have the necessary products in your home, such as vinegar, salt and baking soda. Even if you don’t have them, they are affordable and easy to purchase in any store.

For cleaning the racks inside the oven and the glass, here’s what you’ll need:



Coarse salt

Baking soda

Fill a spray bottle with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water and take out the oven racks. Spray the solution liberally inside the oven, including the inside of the door. Next, grab your baking soda and sprinkle it all over the interior of the oven, paying special attention to any encrusted food debris. Once you’ve done that, sprinkle a thick layer of coarse salt on top of the baking soda and spray it all over with the vinegar and water solution. The vinegar will bubble up with the baking soda to produce a comforting sound that tells you something good is happening! Leave the mixture to sit overnight, and then simply scrub it all off the next morning. Give the entire oven one final spray with the vinegar and water and wipe it down with an old dishcloth or tea towel. This should require minimal elbow grease and can be repeated every time your oven gets dirty.

How to minimize getting your oven dirty:

The simplest and most effective way to keep your oven clean when you’re using it, is to place oven proof paper under dishes so that if they do bubble over, it’ll go onto the paper and not onto the racks or floor of the oven. Cleaning an oven can be an arduous task, even when it is made simpler such as is shown here, so if you forget to pop paper under a dish and it does spill over, try to clean it up while the oven is still warm. Take care not to burn yourself, of course.

And that’s how to clean your oven without the use of chemicals. For an oven that has gotten extremely grubby and is fast becoming a health hazard, use the services of a professional cleaning company to help you get it hygienically clean.
