DIY Homemade Oven Cleaner
- 1 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup sea salt
- 1/2 cup washing soda
- Enough filtered water to make a thin paste
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 10 drops Lemon essential oil
- 10 drops Tea Tree essential oil
Preheat your oven to the lowest temperature possible and turn it off. Then, add baking soda, sea salt, and washing soda to a small bowl. Mix well. Add Lemon and Tea Tree essential oils. Then add vinegar (it will fizz a little). After that slowly add water until it forms a thin paste. You want it thin enough to spread on your oven walls. If it is too thick it will be difficult to spread.
Spread the paste all over your oven and leave on overnight. In the morning, wipe out your oven with warm water.
