Cleaning the oven is potentially one of the most toxic jobs we do in our homes. If you’ve had a look at the ingredients that are in oven cleaners from the supermarket, you’ve no doubt been horrified.
Fortunately, there is a much less toxic yet option: Green Goddess Premium Baking Soda and Green Goddess Premium Soda Ash mixed together and left overnight will remove grime effectively. If your oven is in a really bad way and has a lot of baked-on food and grease, add Green Goddess Premium White Vinegar to soda ash, let it fizz and scrub off.
You won’t get a headache from the fumes or be polluting your house, but do wear rubber gloves as soda ash can be tough on the hands.
DIY Natural Oven Cleaner
Mix together one cup each of premium soda ash and baking soda. Sprinkle over the bottom of the oven to cover. Spray with water until very damp and keep moist by spraying every few hours. Let set overnight. In the morning (using gloves), scoop it all up along with the grime. Then spray with water and sponge out your oven. Clean the glass and stainless with Green Goddess Glass Cleaner.
If your oven is in a really bad way and has a lot of baked-on grime and grease, just use Green Goddess Premium Soda Ash and add Green Goddess Premium White vinegar on hard-to-shift grime. Let it fizz for 10 minutes then scrub with steel wool. Keep applying both the soda ash and the white vinegar and scrubbing until all the grime has gone.
