Let's get started because my oven really needs a cleaning! Here is what it looks like before I start to clean.

First remove the racks from your oven.

Take out your pure white vinegar and baking soda. You'll need 1 cup of baking soda which you should pour in the glass bowl as well as a third of a cup of water until it makes a thick paste.

Spread the baking soda mixture onto the surface of your oven. Clean in circular motions. I used a cloth but i think using a sponge might work even better!

12 hours later...I found an empty spray bottle and filled it with vinegar. Spray it onto the surface of your oven! It will fizz which is super satisfying ;)

Take a spatula to scrape away the bits stuck on to the bottom of the oven. This step can get messy and might take a while all depending on how nasty your oven is ;) For my oven it took a good 10 min.

Once all the nasty stuck on grime is removed, wipe your oven down with a warm damp cloth to get rid of the vinegar and baking soda. After everything is wiped clean, dry the surface of your oven with a dry cloth and TA DA! Now you have a beautiful, clean and glistening oven! :)

    Does this work on a gas oven?

      Yes but you need to take some precautions. Take your racks and the bottom pan most gas ovens have out. You'll clean those separately. Purchase a set of the foil oven liners. You can usually find these at most any dollar store or bog box discount store. Use both of them for added stability. Then pull off extra long pieces of heavy duty foil and lay them under your oven liners leaving the excess sticking out past the edges. You're going to crumple these around crumpled tubes of foil until your oven liner & foil edge rolls create a tight fit in your oven. Then clean your oven using the standard application of baking soda paste and vinegar activator. Try not to get a heavy pool build up in the pan you've made so it doesn't slide down though. The Baking soda paste is a bear to remove if you let it get into your gas lines which is why you want to do this precaution first.
