Step 4: Let the baking soda sit for 20 minutes to overnight. If you're leaving it longer, come back and respritz with the water bottle, and apply more baking soda as needed.

Step 5: Begin wiping down the insides with a wet sponge (preferred) or paper towel. Use a green scour pad to apply extra scrubbing power as you go.

If any black spots remain (like pictured above) you may need to apply a little elbow grease in the form of a flathead screwdriver or flat razor blade, carefully, along the surface of the oven.
