One of the worst jobs and most dreaded jobs in the home seems to be cleaning the oven. We ignore it and close the door, but it does not go away. What are the most common techniques for cleaning an oven?

Months, or even years can go by before the full horror of the situation becomes apparent – and by then you’re faced with layers & layers of hard-baked grease and grime.

It can be very tempting to purchase one of those all-in-one oven cleaners that you leave in the oven overnight, but the chemical fumes that they produce can be off-putting, particulrly if you have young children.

Here are some of the best ideas we've found:

  1. Make a fairly fluid paste with baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and add a little dish washing detergent. Scrub down all surfaces in your oven with the mixture and allow it to sit, ideally overnight. Then apply some white vinegar with a sponge, give it an extra scrub, and wipe it clean.
  2. Simply grab a pumice stone and scrub away with water for a chemical-free clean. You do need to be careful that you're not too enthusiastic and scratch the surface.
  3. Simply use your foam bathroom cleaner and let it sit for a couple of hours. Then just wipe it off.
  4. Apply a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Allow it to sit overnight, then wipe down.
  5. Simply place a bowl of ammonia in the oven overnight, before wiping down in the morning.
  6. Place a pot of just-boiled water in your oven, and close the door. The steam will work all of the grease off. Wipe down.
  7. To clean those interior racks, just grab some heavy duty garbage bags & toss your dirty racks inside with ammonia and water. Leave it outside in the sun while it does the work for you. After a couple of hours, just spray it with the garden hose (after removing the racks from the garbage bags)..
