You don’t need harmful chemicals to clean the oven. Learn how to clean your oven naturally with baking soda and water.
Using baking soda and water is a cheap, safe, natural and effective way to clean your oven!
Baking soda + vinegar doesn’t work. I saw a pin on pinterest about how to clean the oven naturally with baking soda and vinegar. I tried that first but it didn’t work very well because baking soda is a base while vinegar is an acid. They neutralize each other and have no cleaning power after the reaction: you’re just left with water with a tiny amount of salt in it (a dilute sodium acetate solution).
Baking soda + water works! But it’s really easy to clean the oven with baking soda and water. If you let the solution sit in the oven for some hours you can clean your oven naturally with almost no elbow grease!
