How to Clean Your Oven in 20 minutes without Chemicals!

Is it just me or has the been the SLOWEST week, ever?! 

While the rain hasn't been great for my motivation I did manage to do the dreaded task of cleaning out my oven yesterday. I know. SUPPPPPPER EXCITING! (I mean that in the most sarcastic way, ever.) but it had to be done. And sadly, I wasn't getting any offers from any one else in the house to do it. Which basically leaves me. All alone. To clean my oven. I admit I cried a little. 

In all seriousness though, this time of year I don't actually MIND cleaning. When Spring comes, I like everything to feel fresh & new. I love cleaning out all the forgotten about places and things. Like trash cans, and baseboards. I mean, who actually LIKES to clean baseboards? NOT ME. But I do feel much better once that dreaded task is completed. 

If you've been following along for a bit then you know I sort of like to find chemical free and more natural ways of cleaning my home whenever I can. I'm really weird about that sort of thing. When I was growing up, my Mom cleaned houses for a living, and she was always looking for more cost effective and natural ways of doing things, even back then. I learned a lot of tips and tricks from her that I have carried with me into adult hood. 

But I know you guys aren't here for a back story. You're here because you want to know how to clean out your dang oven, without worrying about inhaling toxic fumes, right? RIGHT. Okay, so let's hop to it. (ha! hop! because Easter is coming..omg I'm such a nerd.)


Ya'll this is serious though- check this out..
Honestly, the pictures make it look a lot cleaner than what it really is.

You'll only need a few things that you probably already have handy:

2 tbs baking soda
1 cup vinegar 
1 cup hot water
an empty spray bottle or glass bottle (I use these.)
and some orange essential oil 

Step 1: 
Put on some good music and turn it up REALLY loud. For some reason, Drake always puts me in the mood to clean. Who knew? #onedance #godsplan #themotto

Next, Start by emptying out your oven. If there is lots of caked up food or crumbs in the bottom, like there was in mine (hey, I really don't like cleaning my oven, okay?!) then go ahead and vacuum all that out.

Step 2:
Next we're going to mix up our cleaner, I love this as my de-greaser! I keep a bottle on hand for situations like this one, I also like to clean out my fridge with this. Because that can be pretty scary sometimes too. It's super easy to make! Just mix up one cup of water, one cup of vinegar & add 20-30 drops of Orange essential oils. I use these.

Shake that up real good and make sure it's all mixed together. 

Step 3: 
Apply the mixture that we just mixed up (that's a bit redundant.) all over your oven, especially paying attention to areas that need a bit more attention. If you're oven is REALLY dirty, I love this Method Heavy Degreaser on top of this vinegar/orange oil essential mixture we just made. 

Step 4: 

Immediately after applying the orange mixture, apply baking soda all over the oven, it will start to bubble and foam. It's working! So you don't have to! YAY!!! 

Step 5: 
Let this sit for awhile, at least 20 minutes, but overnight if you can. 

While this is going- you could clean your sink or cooktop. I love to multi-task!

Step 6:
It's not as clean as it should be but I couldn't let this sit overnight and it was time to go get Nick from school so I had to get this DONE! 

Use some good ole' elbow grease and wipe clean with a damp sponge, you can also use an SOS pad if it's really messy. I had to do that in this case. SOS pads are life.

STEP 6: 
ALL DONE!!! YAY!! A CLEAN OVEN!!! 

Pat yourself on the back because for sure nobody is going to do it for you, also, you should probably know that nobody is going to notice the oven is clean except you. Not that I know from experience or anything. But that's okay, because at least WE know. 

Next week I'll show you how to clean the glass on your oven, It's a pretty big task so yes, it deserves it's on post, on a different day. Let's not get crazy, ummmk?

Who else is doing all the spring cleaning this month/week? I'm actually having fun sharing these cleaning tips with you guys! Thanks so much for always cheering me on and having my back! 

If you watched my stories yesterday, here are the links to everything asked about that I shared! 




Tried this method? Drop a comment below letting me know how it worked for you! Your feedback keeps me troubleshooting to figure out what works and what doesn't! 
Thank YOU!

  7. HOW I GOT A LOAN BY BRYAN ROLAND

    I’m Bryan Roland by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scam everywhere, Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders.

    I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr Stephen Williams ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of 145,000 Euro under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan from this company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan.

    If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: stephenswillsloan@gmail.com

    I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

    Thanks you STEPHEN WILLIAMS Loan FIRM for your help
