    Pattie, first be sure it is not self cleaning. Then get aroma free spray cleaner where cleaning supplies are sold. Spray it and let it set overnight or warm the oven to 250 deg. first and spray it. I usually did mine at night and let it set. Wipe out with a warm clean rag and rinse. Re-spray if needed on bad spots. Take the oven racks out on the porch or back steps and spray them and let them set all night. Rinse with hose and wipe off with clean rag. That should do it. You might want to use gloves.

    Hi Pattie: You don't say how dirty your oven is, or if it is. If you have burnt on gunk in your oven, on pans, cookie sheets, anything at all, give this a try, it really works, won't hurt your skin, no smell, and it's fast:) All the things that work for me:) What I use is a paste made of cream of tartar (the dry stuff) and vinegar. Make a paste, rub it on the gunky stuff, let it sit for about 15 seconds and wipe off. If you have to scrub, and you probably won't, use a plastic putty knife or one of those plastic scrubbies. You may have to put the paste on a couple of times if the gunk is really thick. Good luck

    What kind of an oven do you have? Search Hometalk, I am sure there is a recipe for non toxic oven cleaner using vinegar, dawn dish soap & baking soda, sorry I don't remember the recipe measurements.

    Hope this helps you out

    Hi Pattie, I'm not a big fan of commercial oven cleaners. They always seem to leave a residue smell as soon as you turn the oven on after cleaning. I always use for the baking soda and vinegar trick. It does take some elbow grease and time, but it works. Mix some baking soda and water into a thick paste and spread it all over the inside of the oven and leave it overnight. The next day, spray vinegar inside and leave for a few minutes before using a Scotch Brite pad to scrub all the gook off.

    There are many methods, from using a shop bought Spray or Oven Cleaner to using a Soap filled Steel wool pad and elbow grease!
