DIY Oven Cleaner

DIY- Oven Cleaner

Simple, non toxic and effective Oven Cleaner.

I found this DIY recipe for an oven cleaner to be effective plus it's all non toxic. I hate to have those nasty toxic fumes from store bought oven cleaners, fill my house and have my children smelling that. Hearing them cough and complain of the smell made me think twice of what I am exposing them to. After reading some of the ingredients in those oven cleaners, I was shocked to even think of having in that in our house. That's the main reason I go for the non toxic solution.

Cleaning out the oven is one of those dreaded chores that we tend to put off for as long as possible. Burnt-on food, stains, and unpleasant smells can make cleaning the oven a dreaded event. For a simple and natural solution, try this Oven Cleaner DIY with Lemon essential oil.


½ cup baking soda

1 tablespoon coarse salt

¼ cup liquid dish soap

5 drops Lemon essential oil


  1. Combine ingredients to make a thick paste
  2. Apply a generous layer to the inside of the oven and allow to sit for several hours.
  3. Clean out with a sponge.
