Ingredients for All-Natural Oven Cleaner:
- ½ cup salt
- ¼ cup borax
- 1 box (16 ounces) baking soda
- about a cup of water
- ¾ cup white vinegar
- 10 drops Thyme essential oil
- 10 drops Lemon essential oil
Begin by combining the salt, borax, and baking soda in a bowl. Add just enough water to make a paste. (It took us about 1 cup of water to make the consistency a spreadable paste.)
Next, remove the racks from your oven and preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Turn off the oven and spread the paste on the oven walls with a sponge or cloth, and allow it to set for 20 to 30 minutes.
Then, combine the vinegar and essential oils in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray the oven walls thoroughly and wipe clean. If necessary, use some fine steel wool for scrubbing.
Finally, rinse the walls with a wet towel/rag, and admire your newly clean oven walls!
