Oven cleaners can be one of the most toxic chemical cleaners on the market. These green cleaners can still do a great job and are a safe and healthy alternative.
  • My oven was already in need of a cleaning and then I dumped some vanilla all over the bottom {If you place a tbsp of vanilla in the oven for 20 minutes it makes the kitchen smell wonderful - just don't spill it!}
  • Make a paste of baking soda and water and spread it over the entire oven. Let sit for an hour to overnight. Then wipe it clean. {You can also spray some vinegar over it once it has dried for some extra cleaning power}
  • And then you have a nice clean oven!

    Mary, check your warranty to see if your stove top is covered, if not see if it can be repaired either thru the store or the appliance company. I am not sure if water will short out your stove, if it's electric be cateful.
