What a mouthful for today's title, right?
Maggie noted that my oven looks so clean and to tell you the truth - it really is! =)
I've been using this method to clean my oven since 2007, where I posted the following post on m4m in August that year:
I stumbled on this website because of an earlier thread about sodium bicarbonate and its uses. I didn't really believe it until I tried it today. I mean, the science of it sounds true - and that was what convinced me to try it.
And guess what? It works! Sumpah! O.O
The best part of cleaning the oven with the baking soda is that I don't even need to use elbow grease. The 3 teaspoons of baking soda did all the work and I just wipe down the oven with a damp cloth to remove the dirt - and what dirt it was! The pail of water I used to rinse the cloth turned into coffee, but I didn't have to use a whole lot of energy to scrub the oven, nor did I have to scour the oven with detergent etc.
In fact, I managed to even clean the fan behind the grill in the oven - or at least get some of the grime off with the baking soda solution.
Try it and spread the news, people! :D
Since then, I've only ever used this method of cleaning my oven, and my oven has since progressively cleaner and cleaner, and now, even the oven fan is grime free. =)
I love it that the only cleaning agent is bicarbonate of soda, which is something that is often added to food and is therefore non-toxic. It's also cheap and it's on hand because we bake a lot, so we don't have to buy something in addition just to clean the oven. ;)
I hope today's post will bring a lot of joy to oven users, especially when you see the dirt literally dries up and wipes clean away. =)
