Natural Oven Cleaner
Are you like me? You dread having to clean your oven? I even have a self cleaning oven and I dread doing it. I was in the habit of using the self cleaning oven option in the spring or fall when I could have the windows open. It leaves such a stench in the house. A strong eye burning smell. This year, I was in search of a natural option that would leave my kitchen smelling fresh. I happened to fall apon a recipe guide via Pinterest.
Our house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy… Anonymous
I had the ingredients, so I decided to give it a try.
- 1 orange peel
- 1 lemon peel
- Baking Soda
- Mason Jar
- Spray Bottle
I put it all in a mason jar and let sit for 5 days on the counter. Using a funnel, carefully pour the liquid in a spray bottle for use.
Shake baking soda on the stuck on spots within your oven. Now, spray with your Natural Oven Spray and let sit for at least 20 minutes.
Using a damp paper towel or cloth, begin to wipe clean. You may need many damp paper towels or you may be required to rince out your cloth mulitiple times during this process.
I was instantly impressed with how it worked. The bottom of my oven was clean. In all honesty, I had one spot that I treated a second time since it did not come up clean at first, but after 2 treatments, it was nearly perfect.
The extra bonus was that my kitchen smelled fresh of lemon, oranges, and rosemary. Not the burning stench of the self cleaning option.
I would highly recommend this natural oven cleaner to anyone wanting to clean their oven. Now, if your oven is terrible soiled with stuck on food particles and left over yumminess of last years winter cassoral baking, then you may want to opt using your self cleaning or heavy duty chemical spray – your choice. But, for your regular run of the mill – some-what dirty oven – this is definitely for you. To keep up with a clean oven, I would recommend doing this process once every season. Plan around the first day of the season – First day of Spring, first day of Summer… and so on. You’ll be so happy with your sparkling clean oven.
It’s fast. It’s easy. It’s inexpensive, and it smells great. Give it a try and let me know how yours turned out.
