Quickest Way To Clean Your Oven Without Any Chemicals


Making sure your home and appliances are clean is just one of those things that show you are a responsible person. So, without further details, we present you today how to clean your oven without chemicals. Maybe some products manufactured at an industrial do have results, but a DIY solution is always at your disposal. Before starting, make sure you have these:

  • a cup of water;
  • a third of a cup of white vinegar;
  • half a cup of baking soda;
  • half a cup of Kosher salt;
  • a scouring pad;
  • a spray bottle;
  • a razor blade;

Here is what you will need to do for cleaning the oven in a more chemical-free way. First of all, mix the water with vinegar directly in the spray bottle. Apply it on the inside and outside of the oven (meaning the door). Make sure you didn’t use all of the contents. Afterward, take the salt and sprinkle a thick layer of it over the sprayed mixture. Pour the baking soda over as well and finish with another round of spraying. Now, leave it to soak in for about 30 minutes. Then, scrub a bit hard with the scouring pad and don’t stop until you notice the crud coming off from the oven. With the razor blade and the mixture being wet all of the time (you do not want it dry because the result will be a scratched oven instead of a clean one), remove any remainder of crud. That’s it!

    Nice idea but salt = sodium chloride and vinegar = acetic acid. Sound like chemicals to me. By the way you are composed of chemicals, so is everything else. Chemical free is meaningless.

      Thank you SO much for saying what I’m always thinking when I run across sites like these.

      We are nothing more than little chemical processing plants ;->

      Besides, if you want your oven clean, you use lye. These folks all have self-cleaning ovens that clean most of the crud off, but if you have a ‘restaurant’ stove/oven you have got to use lye to clean it. Nothing else, NOTHING ELSE will work. Nasty stuff, don’t breathe it, don’t get it on your skin, but its toxicity is in that it is extremely alkaline.

      Because some people are too stupid to read warning labels should not mean that those of us that UNDERSTOOD OUR HIGH SCHOOL (NOT EVEN COLLEGE) chemistry class, shouldn’t be allowed to use it.

    The basic ingredient of oven cleaners is lye (either sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide).Lye is a corrosive, lye was used to dissolve bodies because of its destructive effects on living tissues (e.g., skin, flesh, and the cornea). Solutions containing it can cause chemical burns, permanent injuries, scarring and blindness, immediately upon contact. Lye may be harmful or even fatal if swallowed; ingestion can cause esophageal stricture. Moreover, solvation of dry solid lye is highly exothermic; the resulting heat may cause additional burns, or ignite flammables.

    Salt and vinegar on the other hand you can eat with out dying from the first bite. An over abundance of salt can lead to medical problems but with all thing we must practice restraint. Gluttony is dangerous not salt or vinegar.

    So when someone says “chemical free” they mean the kind that are dangerous from the start not the ones that become dangerous through gluttony. So “chemical free” is not meaningless.

    It seems to me that it only the door that is been cleaned with this. What about the inside of the oven itself????
