Chemical oven cleaners that you can only do when the windows are wide and the kids are away can make this task unbearable. Try this homemade Essential Oil Oven Cleaner recipe instead with natural ingredients!
Oven Cleaners can be toxic and overpowering, leaving your home smelling terrible. This terrible smell usually keeps people from wanting to clean the oven, which can cause a build-up of residue inside the oven. Over time this build-up can cause problems and leave behind a bad smell every time you cook in it.
Our natural oven cleaner recipe combines the power of baking soda and essential oils. Essential oils are perfect for cleaning because they're antibacterial and naturally deodorizing.
Not only will your oven be clean of grime, but it will also smell so fresh. When you are done cleaning the oven, you will not have to run for cover, you will be able to inhale deeply and smell the wonderful aroma that is left behind.
