I’m a really great homemaker except for two things ~ cleaning the tub and the oven. Uuuughghghg I hate cleaning those two! Even though there’s an unspoken agreement that I clean the inside of the house and my husband takes care of the outside (mowing the lawn, garbage, weeding…), I often talk him into taking care of the tub 😝
But the oven has been collecting junk for… a long time, and I figured it was time to clean it.
I always follow recipes from YouTube and they never work, so I figured: why not follow YouTube cleaning advice too? 🙃 What’s the worse that could happen?
So I used white vinegar, baking soda, and some disposable gloves.
I made a paste with these ingredients and mixed it up well.
Then I coated the door of the oven with the paste. This was my first time trying this, so I only put it on the oven door (thinking that if it worked, I’d go back and do the whole oven).
After 60 minutes, I came back with a sponge, dipping it into the vinegar and scrubby dub dubbing away at the mess. Let me tell ya, it’s not as easy as YouTubers make it seem! There was a lot of scrubbing, and my husband had to join in with his muscle.
And after a lot of sweat…
All the scrubbing finally paid off!
There’s a pretty big difference, but my oven was reeeeeal dirty. I like that I can see through the glass and that now all I have to do is upkeep.
Would I recommend it?
Oh. No. Nooooo, no, no, no 😂 Goodness, no. Especially if you’re nearing 40 like me and your knees ain’t what they used to be… You’d be better off paying someone else to do it, or perhaps trying out your oven’s self-cleaning mode.
안녕! Bye! Ciao!
