I cleaned my oven this afternoon – going to need to use it a lot next week. It wasn’t terrible, but had “stuff” on it. (I forgot to support a foil pan back in Dec, had an ‘ooooppppssss’, forgot about it, and last time I used the oven, I set off the smoke alarm)
I used the nasty spraycan oven cleaner stuff, followed the directions, coughed a lot and had my eyes stinging. After letting it sit a couple hours, wearing rubber gloves and cleaning and rinsing, STILL had burned greasy crap that didn’t come off. For the absolute heck of it, I gave it a couple squirts of “Simple Green” and waited about 30 seconds, wiped mess off with a paper towel. Clean. Sprayed the racks, waited a minute, and rinsed under running water. Clean. (for those who don’t know this stuff, best metal shop parts de-greaser ever, US-made, cheap, eco-friendly ,non-toxic – supposedly even safe enough to drink (not gonna try this part) ,smells like sassafrass, not a chemical plant explosion. It’s on automotive aisle at your nearest megamart. For less intense uses, it’s a concentrate, so you can cut it with plain water, so it’s even cheaper to use.
Guess what I’m using in the oven next time :)
