Non-toxic Oven Cleaning

Do you wish your oven looked like this? Do you want to know how to clean your oven without using toxic chemicals?

To make it you will need: ½ cup salt, ¼ cup borax, 1 box (16 ounces) baking soda, about a cup of water, ¾ cup white vinegar, 10 drops thyme essential oil and 10 drops lemon essential oil.

Start by combining the salt, borax, and baking soda in a bowl. Add just enough water to make a paste. It took about a cup of water to make a spreadable paste.

Next, remove the racks from your oven and preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Turn off the oven and spread the paste on the oven walls with a sponge or cloth and allow it to set for 20 to 30 minutes.

Combine the vinegar and essential oils in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray the oven walls and wipe clean. This takes more elbow grease than is necessary with a commercial oven cleaner, and you might need to use some fine steel wool for scrubbing. (If you prefer the scrubbing to the toxic feel and smell of oven cleaner)

Finally, rinse well, and admire your nice, clean oven walls!
