Everyone loves cleaning the oven right? Breathing in those awesome toxic fumes that make you feel like you need to leave the house, all the scrubbing and joy of it?
Yeah, me neither.
And honestly, when I used to clean it with bicarb soda, I was never all that thrilled with that process either – all that white powder to clean up? And still a lot of elbow grease required! At least it was fume free though. So what’s the best natural oven cleaner?
What I want to share with you today – just briefly – is what I do now, using Norwex. Soooo much easier.
If you just want the video version – skip to the bottom. 🙂 If you like to to read, pray continue…
So I usually use three products – the Norwex Enzyme based oven & grill cleaner, a stainless steel spirinet, and the Norwex grey grease cloth (aka the all-purpose kitchen cloth). Plus water, of course!
The enzyme cleaner is non-toxic, fume free and generally non-irritating (I’d suggest using gloves if you have sensitive skin, but I have never needed to).
To use it, you heat the oven just to warm (you should be able to still touch comfortably without burning yourself). This will activate the enzymes.
Spray on the oven & grill cleaner, and leave it for 5-10 minutes.
Now simply scrub it out using a WET spirinet – it’s best to actually grab a small bowl of water for your spirinet and use that, so you know it’s plenty wet. This will prevent scratching. In most cases, you can use it on the glass door without scratching too – just take care if you have a film on the door.
When you are done, wipe it out with the grease cloth to take away the grease and also dry it off. If you missed some bits, just go at it again with the wet scrubby, which should still have some of the spray in it too.
You CAN respray and start again, and if you had a LOT of burnt on grime you may need to, but most times I find spirinet will be enough, because the enzymes have already had a good go. (Note you could also use an envirocloth or even a regular kitchen cloth instead of the grease cloth if need be).
Now, I have two videos to share with you to show you how this works. The first one is short, plus she has a reasonably grimey oven to clean. The second one is longer, but she goes into a lot more detail and shows how you can use the oven & griller cleaner on your cook top as well, plus gives you a lot more tips.
So – if you have the oven & grill cleaner already, and you want to see a really good demo of how to use it – watch the bottom one, which is by Australian senior consultant Linda Pearce (I am super lucky to have Linda as one of my upline leaders!). If you just want to see it in action, watch the top one, by American consultant Kera Pederson.
