Trying new recipes is fun, but sometimes it leads to unexpected results, like this oven mess that I was left with the other night:
Now, I don’t have a self-cleaning oven, and I don’t use oven cleaners, but this mess was actually a lot easier to clean up than you’d probably guess. In face, my oven basically cleaned itself while I was out yardsaling. Want to know my trick? Here it is:
Step 1: Sprinkle a thick layer of baking soda over the baked-on mess (your oven needs to be completely cool for this).
Step 2: Then, spray the baking soda down with water (white vinegar is even better).
Step 3: When the baking soda dries out, spray it down again.
Step 4: Come back in a couple hours, and scoop out the baking soda. All of that stuck-on mess should come right out with it (with no scrubbing required).
Step 5: Wipe down the bottom of the oven to remove any remaining baking soda, and your oven is ready for use again.
