Cleaning a Dirty Oven

No one likes cleaning the oven, but Shannon Lush has some natural cleaning tips to get the job done quick and easy.

1. You’ll need bicarb soda, white vinegar and pantyhose. Spread a layer of bicarb over the door (and other reachable surfaces) and squirt with white vinegar until it fizzes.
2. Then scour with the pantyhose until the grime shifts. You may have to do this several times if the grime is very built up.
3. Clean the sides of the oven using the two sponge technique. Use one damp sponge dipped in bicarb and another sponge dipped in vinegar. Apply the bicarb sponge first, then place the vinegar sponge over the top of the bicarb sponge and press the vinegar through both sponges.
4. Once cleaned, rinse with water.
5. To do the oven ceiling put a mirror in the bottom, so you can see what you are doing without calisthenics. Ideally clean like this once a week to keep things ship-shape in there.

Bicarb Soda and White Vinegar works well on glass I find, but not so good on baked on grease inside the oven... I have my oven done by once every so often, as I can't get the inside of the oven looking good. I don't know how they do it but it looks brand new, they even remove all the baked on stuff somehow?

I have baked on foil in the bottom of my oven. Nothing works to get it off! Heelp please

Wet paper towel and place over the foil leave for a while then it should wipe away. The wetness should loosen the foil...

I thought i would give it a go.
Turned out to be a waste of time.
I ended up using steel wool and dish washing liquid to clean the glass on the oven doir. it took about an half an hour.
Using vinegar etc did absolutly NOTHING .
Will just stick to the regular cleaning products.
