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.
When we cook, this is something that we need to deal with! [♥ Borax, natural since I usually put a vent filter in the dishwasher, one per load, same with gas stove top racks, but try this idea! [original post: Stove Top Hood Vent Filter Cleaning
I use 1 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of Dawn dishwashing liquid. Heat vinegar to almost a boil. Pour into a squirt bottle (empty dishwashing bottle) add Dawn and gentle mix without the lid on. Apply to shower/tub. I usually let it sit for a few minutes then wipe and rinse. You will no believe how much soap scum was there. Your shower will look brand new, even the glass doors!
Clean burnt pots - vinegar, baking soda, and water :) I had been soaking a pan for 2 days, scrubbing like crazy several times. Brought the water n vinegar to a boil, added baking soda. Waited a couple mins, dumped it all out n everything just wiped off! I will be doing this since I forgot my boiling orange peels on the stove... Oops!
