I desperately need to clean out the bottom of my oven Does anyone know of a good product to use? I've never had to do this before, so I'm not sure what kind of product to look for.
|To clean my oven, I sprinkle baking soda all over the bottom until it is covered completely with about 1/4 of an inch of baking soda. Then, using a clean spray bottle, I spray the baking soda with water until the baking soda is thoroughly damp but not flooded. After that, this lazy cleaner goes off and does other things. When I think of it, I dampen the baking soda again if it is drying out. Before I go to bed, I do that again. When I wake up in the morning, the baking soda can effortlessly be scooped out of the oven with a sponge, bringing all the grime with it. That's it! The only downside is that you need to rinse out the white residue left by the baking soda, but it sure beats Oven cleaner because there are no fumes!|
I use Easy Off Spray Oven cleaner-it says no fume on the can. I remove the oven racks-if it was warmer you could take them outside and lay them on plastic garbage bags and spray then. I them see if there is any loose "stuff" and scoup that out. I lay newspaper on the floor under the oven and then spray away.
Mke sure the oven is cold and follow the directions on the can. I will wear rubbe gloves and use lots of paper towels. This works well for me. If you also shop at a better cookware store some sell a product you can put on the bottom of the oven for easier cleaning-I 've checked into this (yet).
And once its clean (or cleaner) wipe up spills promptly (easier said than done though).
