I came across a blog and they had cleaned their oven door and it look amazing. It was so easy I had to try it out last night. If I can find something that will work other than that awful smelling and messy oven cleaner it is well worth my time to try. They used baking soda, water, and probably a little elbow grease.
While cleaning up the kitchen last night I mixed some up... 1/4 cup baking soda and just enough water to make a runny mixture... and put it all over the glass and door. I let it set while I cleaned up the kitchen and helped the little munchkin get his stuff ready for school. It sat around 25 minutes and I went to work cleaning it off. I had to apply a bit of elbow grease but it was well worth my time. It was well worth my time and effort and will be doing this more than I have been.
I hate cleaning the oven because of the oven cleaner. It smells and it is truly disgusting washing it out. It burns if it touches your skin and nasty if you get it on your sleeves. If you are like me wearing those gloves make my fingers crack and hurt for days. So lets just say the oven doesn't get cleaned as often as it should. I am going to try this on the whole oven hopefully over the weekend. It can't hurt to give it a try and if it works on the whole oven maybe my oven will get cleaned more often.
Go check out the before and after pictures of the oven door over on DIY Home Sweet Home and see the amazing results.
