Magic Oven Cleaning Method - so easy to get your oven clean so fast! Do your 5 minute prep the night before, wake up the next morning, wipe it clean and you are done! For when I don't have a self cleaning oven some day.
Did this last night and I'm cleaning my grates now. Best my stove has ever looked even when we moved in! Some of them requires a little more scrubbing than just wiping off but just a little. My grates look new!
Cleaning Your Oven Without Poisonous, Earth Destroying Chemicals
oven cleaner: Cover bottom of oven with baking soda, then pour vinegar so it's all wet. Let sit around 20 minutes or so then wipe all of it out with damp cloth or sponge. leave oven door open too. After drying you may see some white residue, wipe again.
fill a measuring glass with 1 cup of water and cup of vinegar, set it in the microwave, turn on microwave on for 5 min and go on to another chore. Take a wet wash cloth and wipe every bit of the mess out. Seriously 6 minutes and I had a clean microwave.
