Home Made Oven Cleaner


4 tbsp baking soda
Enough very hot water to make a paste with the baking soda

Make a paste and apply to your oven with an old toothbrush or soft bristled brush. Let sit for at least 1 minute, then scrub with the brush. Rinse with water and cloth, making sure to remove all traces of baking soda (or your next oven-cooked meal will have a funky taste!).


1 cup baking soad
1 cup salt
Enough water to make a paste

Apply the paste to the stains in your oven. Turn oven on to 500 degrees F and let bake for 1 hour. Allow oven to cook and remove cleaner with a damp sponge. Again, make sure all traces of the cleaner are removed.

Both these recipes came from here.

Guess what I'm doing today. I'll let you know the results later.

Happy house cleaning, M

Hiya Michele!! How is spring up there? Here's hoping your beautiful family is doing really well.

I missed your note about the shawl - sorry about that! If it is still on your mind, red lace weight alpaca would definitely work. If anything, it just might be smaller.

How is your garden doing?

The queen of clean also used a little borax with those mixes.
