Doing It Ourselves: Oven Cleaning

 A few weeks ago, I ran the auto-clean cycle on my oven. It cleaned the oven but the oven window was still an icky, grease splattered mess. It was becoming a real pet peeve of mine but I wasn't sure what to do about it. So, I did what most women of my generation do. I logged onto Pinterest. LOL
I had an idea of what to try but wanted confirmation that someone else had tried it and their family was still alive. Ha.

I made up a paste of baking soda and water. Then I smeared it all over the inside of the window and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes. I then used a wash cloth to scrub it in a bit and clean it off. Most of it came off. There were still a few spots that were really baked on. So I carefully used my kitchen razor to scrape off the thick stuff and then scrubbed again with some more baking soda paste.

Viola! Crystal clean oven window. My kitchen was already pretty clean that day but this was the icing on the cake. I had to stare at it for awhile. Oh the things us adults get excited over. Hehe
