Few things are as boring as cleaning the oven. And since we use it on a daily basis it´s no wonder it quickly gets dirty. But now I have found this method that is so simple it almost feels like the oven is cleaning it self! Another advantage is that you don´t have to use any chemicals!

You know that wonderful smell when you walk into Williams Sonoma? Here’s how to get it: water, sliced lemon, 3 springs of fresh rosemary and about a teaspoon of vanilla. Simmer on the stove....this smells amazing! I used 2 lemons, 3 sprigs of rosemary and about 2 tablespoons if vanilla. It only took 5 minutes to make the whole house smell fresh!

Ta-da! What a big difference! Are your kitchen cabinets looking like my 'before pic'? If so, here is an easy & quick fix - Mix 3/4 cup canola oil & 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar in a jar and shake well. Rub the oil mixture onto the cabinets w/a rag (I used an old T-shirt), then wipe with another clean rag!
