Cleaning your oven:

One word - BAKING SODA! Honestly, it’s a little embarrassing for me to admit, but this wonderful ingredient has only been de-stinking my fridge for years. The uses of this wonderful ingredient are absolutely endless! 

What kind of oven/stove-top do you own? glass? ceramic? gas? I’m here to let you know it doesn’t even matter, baking soda will clean every kind. 

  • Baking Soda
  • Rags (anything you can dampen with water)
  • a little water

  1. Do your best to wipe any excess food or crumbs with a dampened rag. 
  2. Sprinkle a healthy amount of baking soda over everything. (Now - if you are using a traditional electric stove or a gas stove, you will need to either remove the elements or take extra care when sprinkling in and around those areas.)
  3. Dampen a 2nd cloth with water & scrub, scrub, scrub! You will notice the magic happening immediately. Continue to wet your cloth and repeat! 
  4. Once the natural cleaning magic has met your standards - wipe down with a cry cloth & enjoy your shiny new oven!
