DIY Natural Oven Cleaner

When was the last time you cleaned your oven? While most people know that they should do it, most don’t do it often enough. And you really should – cooking your food in a greasy, dirty mess isn’t the best idea, and if any of those bits start smoking they will give your food a gross charcoal taste. There’s no need to be intimidated, though… here’s an easy, natural way to get your oven looking cleaner than ever.

  • 2 cups of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • Spoon
  • Spray bottle
  • Paper towels
  • An old rag (not pictured)
  • Rubber gloves (not pictured)
