Good morning,

Cleaning your oven can be a dirty, messy job. And while it can be made a little faster by using commercial oven cleaners these cleaners contain chemicals which can very literally kill not to mention being extremely harmful to the environment in a number of different ways.

Why not try a more Earth friendly alternative? Scroll down and try this home-made method.

* Coat oven surfaces in a paste of water and baking soda and let stand overnight, then scrub off. Washing Soda or sodium carbonate (a little different to baking soda which is sodium bicarbonate) is a naturally occurring mineral that can also be used.

* If water and sodium carbonate doesn't quite work on your oven mess you can try this alternative method. 2 tablespoons liquid soap + 2 teaspoons borax + warm water, spray on, allow to sit for a while and then scrub off.

* Just remember that not using toxic chemicals that would burn your skin off or your eyes out means that it will take a little more time and probably require a little more elbow grease.
