I'm not Merry Maids and if I don't see it, I don't clean it. I mean, it's an oven right?
I saw this pin last month and thought I'd try:
The pin uses a mix of Baking Soda and water. Simple. No chemicals. If I clean with something I could eat, it's a good thing.
Here is my oven door...don't you judge me:
It still turns on and heats up, so we are good.
After I let it sit for 30 minutes, I scrubbed a little and wiped it off. This is what I got:
I closed the oven and thought...it's like shaving your legs in the winter. What's the point? No one goes there.
Then, I turned on the oven. Let it warm up and mixed up another batch of the baking soda...perhaps a warmer oven will release the grime better.
I ditched the whole baking soda stuff and thought about the can of Easy Off under my sink. I reached for it and knocked over the SOS pads. DUH! I use SOS when I can't clean a baking dish.
Look at what happened:
If you are a Merry Maid and have a somewhat clean oven, the Baking Soda may work for you. It got the superficial brownish greasy layer, but didn't touch the spots that were caked on.
Grab your SOS pad and work on your arms.
