Use Aluminum Foil To Clean Stuck-On Bits From Your Oven
The same foil you use to wrap your sandwiches or cover your baking trays can work wonders in providing a gentle, easy way to clean your oven without the use of harsh chemicals.
First, ensure your oven is cool, then tear off a sizable piece of aluminum foil and crumple it into a loosely formed ball. The semi-rough texture allows for gentle scrubbing.
Before you start scrubbing, dampen the oven's interior with baking soda paste. You can even leave it to soak for about an hour to loosen the grime, making for easier scrubbing.
When done, wipe down the oven with a damp cloth to remove any remaining debris. For the glass door, repeat the process, being careful not to scratch the glass.
To clean oven racks, remove and lay them in a large sink or bathtub with warm water and detergent for a few hours or overnight before proceeding with the steps.
