How to Clean Cooking Messes from Inside of Oven

You’re making one of your families favorite desserts; an apple pie. When it’s done baking you take it out of the oven and realized it bubbled over and made a mess of your clean oven. Spills and splatters will eventually happen and sometimes they just can’t be avoided no matter how careful you are.

Don’t worry; the good news is you can make your own safe oven cleaner and won’t have to buy or use toxic chemicals to clean your oven.

When using a more natural approach to cleaning your oven, it may require a bit more elbow grease, but in the long run it’s better for you and worth the effort.

Home Made Oven Cleaner Recipe

  • 1 T Liquid Dish Soap
  • 1 T Lemon Juice
  • 1 T Bleach
  • 1 Quart Warm Water

Take all the above ingredients and mix them together in a small bucket. Apply the cleaning solution with a sponge to the inside of the oven. Let this sit for 1 hour then scrub with a sponge or a green scrubby. Use plain water to rinse well.

Chemical Free Natural Oven Cleaning Recipe

  • 5 T Baking Soda
  • 3 Drops Liquid Dish Soap
  • 4 T White Vinegar

Mix all ingredients together into a thick paste. Using a sponge, apply the oven cleaner to the inside of the oven and scrub with a green scrubby. When finished, rinse thoroughly and wipe the oven clean.

Using Ammonia to Clean the Oven

For this recipe, simply take one cup of ammonia and put in a glass bowl. Place in the oven and close the door. Let sit overnight, the day, use your green scrubby to wipe away stubborn stains.

Use these recipes as they are. Do not mix ammonia with bleach.

Tips for Keeping Your Oven Clean

To help keep the oven clean and save on cleanup time, try one of these tips:

Use aluminum foil under the baking dish.
Keep a drip pan or a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil on a lower shelf from the baking dish.
Because aluminum foil burns, don't let it touch the elements.
