There are a variety of these chemical cleaning products on the market these days, all promising to get the job done faster and better than the next one. The truth is, most of these chemical products do exactly the same thing, they just come in a different bottle with a new flashy name. In the past several decades, cleaning products have found a place on the market, but before that, all that people used were natural products like vinegar, baking soda and the like. Most of the natural cleaners do the same great cleaning job as their chemical counterparts, but without polluting your space and the earth. The other awesome thing is, these natural cleaners are super easy to make, and you may already even have the ingredients around your house.
There are so many different ways that you can use natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and even salt to clean. Plus, you'll save money in the process too since most of the natural cleaners use ingredients that cost under $5 for a box or a bottle of the ingredient. Common Sense Home teaches us 3 different cleaning tips to help us get a clean oven without chemicals. One of the natural cleaners only includes 2 ingredients - baking soda, and salt are definitely two items that you probably already have in your kitchen. You simply make a paste with the two ingredients and some water and than put the paste all over the inside of your oven and let it work it's magic for some time. Usually, an hour will be good, or, you can let it sit overnight for a really dirty oven. Once you've let it sit, then you take a scrubbing pad or a cloth and wipe out all of the gunk that's come off of the oven. You'll also need to use some elbow grease to get to the really tough spots as well. You can even spray some warm water inside the oven, or some vinegar to really get the mixture working. The vinegar and baking soda mix will create a natural reaction that will fizz and work to break down the really stuck on gunk and grime making it easier to get your oven clean without chemicals.
You can also prevent having a big mess in your oven by taking some preventative measures. For example, be sure to clean up any spills and stains before they get baked and crusted onto the oven, or do a quick wipe of your oven when you're cleaning each week. Soak your drip pans from the stove in hot soapy water every week and scrub them to keep them looking new. Things you may want to refrain from are lining your oven with aluminium foil as it can actually cook your food unevenly and it can also potentially cause electric shock. So even though tis may be a favourite for some people, proceed with caution. You can also use this salt and baking soda mixture to clean your oven racks which can be done in your bath tub to make the job much easier for you.
