Thanks to original pinner who said: I think I'll try this next time. The appliance repairman told me using the self-cleaning feature takes years off the life of an oven. The best oven cleaner! Cover bottom of oven with baking soda, then pour vinegar so it's all wet. Let sit around 20 minutes or so then wipe all of it out with damp cloth or sponge. I leave my oven door open too. After drying you may see some white residue, wipe again.

Quickest Way To Clean Your Oven Without Any Toxic Chemicals. Using what is probably already in your cupboards.... Well, like I mentioned before, I have not been spending too much time in the kitchen. I have been abiding by the sign above and watching my happy children make my floor stickier by each passing summer day. I read this somewhere and know it too well to be true: “Cleaning your house while your children are home is like brushing your teeth while eating oreos.” Amen to that. But, just recently I went on this crazy purging and cleaning spree. A house full of boys and their friends in the summertime, romping carefree through the house, leaving trails of crumbs and puddles from wet swimsuits behind them, just may have been what set me off. And I clearly need more excitement in my life because this following discovery has thrilled me to no end. I figured out a magic concoction to clean the disgusting, baked-on crud off of my oven door….without chemicals! And it is a completely quick and easy way to make it sparkly clean. My oven gets a lot of use and I never thought I could get it this see-through again. I do get that my oven has a self-cleaning feature. I just refuse to use it because I hate that smell more than I hate looking at my gross mess in there. So I usually just scrub any immediate messes the best I can and then go about my day. So…after reading about a number of different non-toxic, natural, chemical-free oven cleaning remedies, I finally decided to combine a bunch of ideas and create my own. It was so simple and only involved exactly what I had on hand. First I opened the oven door. Then I sprayed it with a mixture of white Vinegar and Water. Then I covered this mixture with Baking Soda. Then I covered that with Kosher Salt. Then I sprayed a little more of that lovely Vinegar and Water. You could actually hear the Vinegar and Baking Soda working their magic together and sizzling away. Then I waited. I am not good at waiting patiently. I could have let it sit overnight. I figured ten minutes would have to do just fine though. Then I scrubbed. Then my husband started laughing at me. Then he scrubbed. Then I started laughing at him. Note the blurry picture. It is because I was, indeed, laughing at him while capturing this moment on film. Then he got out this amazing retractable razor. Then he made a few swipes across the entire face of the oven glass. And all of a sudden? THIS HAPPENED!! Every ounce of crud was gone. gone. gone. Note: if you do the above steps, always keep the glass very very wet if you are scraping with a razor so that you do not scratch the glass. And then I went online and bought this AMAZING OVEN LINER so that I do not have to depend on my oven for my arm work outs… These mats simply wipe clean with a damp cloth. No more messes! Brilliant, I tell you. Brilliant. So..I guess the actual recipe would go something like this: Print this recipe How to Clean Your Oven Without Chemicals “Ingredients” 1 Spray Bottle 1 cup Water 1/3 cup White Vinegar 1/2 cup Kosher Salt 1/2 cup Baking Soda 1 Razor Blade Directions: 1. Mix water and vinegar together in the spray bottle. Spray this mixture all over your oven door and/or the inside of your oven. 2. Sprinkle a thick layer of the Sea Salt evenly over this mixture. 3. Sprinkle a thick layer of the Baking Soda over the salt. 4. Spray the vinegar/water mixture over the salt and baking soda until it forms a paste. Note: you should begin to hear the vinegar and baking soda working together at this point. Now. Let it sit. 5. Then, using a scouring pad, scrub with a little man power until you start to see the crud coming off. Once you have scrubbed all that you want, get out your razor and, making sure that the mixture stays very wet, gently scrape off any remaining crud.

Refill Wallflowers Scented Plugin.... Fill bulb with 1/3 essential oils and remainder with water
Diy Wallflower, Diy Scented, Air Freshener, Essential Oils, Wall Flower, House Smells, Home Scented, Plugs In, Nature Home
Fill plugin wallflowers with essential oil. Natural home scents! I am totally doing this! I love when my house smells good, but I'm allergic to the store bought air fresheners.
Holy Crickey DIY Wallflowers Scented Plugin i’m about to get hippie on you all. plugin air fresheners (and tons of other stuff) have something called VOC in them. VOC stands for “volatile organic compounds” and they are highly toxic. they are chemicals with a low boiling point. VOC cause all sorts of problems in your body: infertility (some of you may like that!), headaches, nervous system disorders, memory loss and cancer for both your pet and you…. lots of things. i was bummed when i learned about this and unplugged mine. being a packrat i couldn’t bring myself to toss it out and thought, maybe i’ll just plug it in for the holidays and poison my loved ones only a few times a year. then i had a bright idea: replace the bad stuff with good stuff: essential oils, which are awesome for you and, sometimes a lot cheaper than the liquid cancer bath and body works sells. here’s how you do it. . remove the wick part (which ironically looks like a cigarette) empty and rinse out the bulb . find an oil you like. i chose peppermint because its pretty cheap and it makes my house smell cool and clean. i highly recommend orange, lavender, cinnamon, roman chamomile, clary sage, lemon, rose, grapefruit, jasmine or ylang ylang oil. . pour the oil into the bulb . i fill it up about 1/3 of the way but it will last lay longer if you do the whole thing. . fill the rest of the bulb with water, but not to the top or else inserting the wick with make it spill. put the wick back in the bulb. . screw it back into the plug in part and enjoy refreshing, healing air that won’t make your hair fall out.
Fill plugin wallflowers with essential oil. Natural home scents! definitely going to do this one! Those wall flowers are expensive and oils are a lot cheaper to buy. Flea market here I come.
How To Make A DIY Scented Plug-In... Get rid of the horrible toxic liquid found in store bought plug-ins and replace it with health giving, wonderfully fragrant, toxin free essential oils. It's so easy and cheap to do and means you'll never have to buy a plug-in air freshener again!

How To- Cleaning Couches
Cleaning microfiber furniture: Put rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle, saturate dirty spots; scrub vigorously with a sponge (make sure it is white so the color of the sponge doesn't rub off into the furniture). Or, use a sponge the same color as the furniture. Use a brush to get the microfiber to "stand back up"--it makes the microfiber look good as new. I tried this and it works great.

How to clean your garbage disposal. Start by running hot water through your garbage disposal for a minute. Pour about 1/4 c. baking soda into the drain.

You will see slots between the oven door and the glass, that look like these. Step 4: Slide the cleaning “contraption” up through the slats.

Put warm water into the dirty pan or cookie sheet, lay the dryer sheet (or sheets) flat in the water and leave it to sit overnight. In the morning, the baked-on stuff will either have lifted off, or will be very easy to slough off with a spatula or other flat object. It has always worked for me...especially if you do it right after you've used the pan.
