    Hi Sverige2,

    The recipe and method are on this website. There are a few other ideas there as well. The Cream of Tartar one is the 4th one down. Wishing you the best.

    I buy oven cleaner - not to clean my oven (it's self-cleaning) - but specifically for my drip pans! Remove drip pans from stove. Spray each to cover with foam. Stack and seal in a plastic bag for about an hour. The "gunk just rinses off.
