What's the best way to clean a nonself-cleaning oven?

The easier the better.... The less chemicals even betterer.... Razz

@tsarstepan,
I ruined the last oven I had because it was one of those self cleaning ovens and I had no idea what that meant. I used easy off on it.

When in doubt, soap and water Cool

Oven Cleaner: Moisten oven surfaces with sponge and water. Use 3/4cup baking soda, 1/4cup salt and 1/4cup water to make a thick paste, and spread throughout oven interior. (avoid bare metal and any openings) Let sit overnight. Remove with spatula and wipe clean. Rub gently with fine steel wool for tough spots. Or use Arm & Hammer Oven Cleaner, declared nontoxic by Consumers Union.

I think pretty much anything can be cleaned with some combo of baking soda/vinegar/water/salt.

Just have to find the right combo for the specific thing you're trying to clean.


I kinda worship baking soda.

someone else who thinks like I do

Quote:
/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup baking soda

3 cups water

- combine all the above. Apply this in inside and outside the oven with a kitchen towel, leave for a few minutes and then just wipe of with a clean, wet towel. For those stubborn stains, just scrub a little harder.

@tsarstepan,
can you have a neighbor do it?

I used to live down the hall from this cute girl, and she never did anything for herself...

Any parts that are removable, I clean with oven cleaner. Take them outside, spray them well, and carefully slip them into plastic bags for a day. If you touch the stuff, wash with cold water immediately. Don't breathe the spray or get it into your eyes.

I really like this one. The overnight part makes sense considering it's not that dangerous chemical crap of the store bought oven cleaner. I'll try this one and see what happens afterwards. I'll resort to the nasty oven cleaner if the all nighter natural stuff doesn't do the job well enough.

I need to roll again to get a higher base ability charisma score before I try and get any cute single neighbor girls to break a sweat and use a little elbow grease to clean my oven.

@tsarstepan,
When I moved into this house, the oven probably hadn't been cleaned in a decade Twisted Evil or so it seemed. We did the baking soda/salt paste thing twice. The oven/stove are still in use now - lovely harvest gold - but reasonably clean.

I like the vinegar and baking soda combo. I try to wipe up spills as soon as possible (without getting burned).

@Rockhead,
Are you sure? They use vinegar on salads (so I've heard), and baking soda settles the stomach. What's not to like?

What's wrong with using nasty oven cleaner? That's what it's for.

@roger,
V inegar and baking soda also good for cleaning drains. Apple cider vinegar and honey good for arthritis pain. Use a tbsp honey add enough vinegar to make it liquify, hold nose and drink . My theory is this works because it tastes so horrible, you don't notice aching joints for a while.
