I have to admit something...
It is soooo embarrassing...
Something I've put off for far too long...
But I hope I'm not the only one who is guilty...
I have lived in my house for over four years now and never cleaned the inside of my oven!
The task seemed so daunting.
Actually it was daunting because I don't have the luxury of a self cleaning oven. I so wish we could just buy a new one, but that won't be an option for a long time.
It took me all day.
But I did it!
Thanks to the prego nesting itch.
Here it is on the outside...
(I do clean it on the outside often. It was the inside that was scary!)
Now the BEFORE on the inside...
Look away if you must!
I told you! GROSS!
This picture just doesn't give it justice.
It's worse looking in real life.
But it's okay now. Here's the AFTER
I can also thank this stuff...
Just spray, wait, then wipe.
Open a window too. The fumes almost killed me!
(It also likes to leave a white film. I just used diluted vinegar spray to get that off)
And thanks to this stuff too...
My new cleaning love, Organge Shine.
I used it on the outside. Great for getting those tough grease stains.
I even separated the oven doors to get the drips in between the best I could.
Then another trick is to put the grates in a garbage bag with a few cups of ammonia for a day.
I also do this for my stove burners.
Give it time to soak that in.
Put it outside so the fumes don't choke ya.
Then just rinse and wipe.
Here it is all finished!
SOOO MUCH BETTER.
You can add some aluminum foil at the bottom for a quick clean up.
