Get Your Oven Looking Brand New with DIY Oven Cleaning Spray

A Dirty Little Secret

Confession time – I haven’t cleaned my oven in over six years. I know, I know, it’s absolutely shameful. But the truth is, I just can’t stand the thought of using those harsh, chemical-laden oven cleaners. The fumes, the scrubbing, the whole ordeal just fills me with dread. So, like many of you, I’ve been putting it off, hoping the problem would just magically go away.

Well, my friends, the day of reckoning has come. That built-up grease and grime has turned my once-gleaming oven into a veritable hazmat zone. It’s time to face the music and get this baby sparkling clean. But this time, I’m doing it my way – with a homemade, all-natural oven cleaning spray that works like a dream.

The Natural Solution

As I delved into research on how to clean an oven without harsh chemicals, I stumbled upon a game-changing discovery: a natural oven cleaner made with just a few simple ingredients. No more choking on fumes or scrubbing until my arms feel like they’re going to fall off. This DIY spray is not only effective, but it’s also safe for me, my family, and the environment.

The secret weapon? Thieves concentrated cleaner – a powerful, plant-based solution that tackles even the toughest oven grime. Combined with the degreasing powers of vinegar and the scrubbing prowess of baking soda, this dynamic duo is like a superhero team for your oven.

The Step-by-Step Saga

Alright, let’s get down to business. Here’s how I tackled my oven cleaning adventure, and how you can do the same:

  1. Preparation is Key: Start by removing any big chunks of baked-on debris from the bottom of the oven. Then, spray a generous amount of the Thieves cleaner (I used a 1:1 ratio with water) all over the interior surfaces, making sure to cover every nook and cranny.

  2. Soak and Simmer: Let the cleaner work its magic by letting it soak for at least 2 hours, or even overnight if your oven is in serious need of some TLC. This will help break down that stubborn grease and grime.

  3. Gather Your Tools: Assemble your cleaning arsenal – gloves, scouring pads, a steel brush, and some clean rags. It’s time to get scrubbing!

  4. Crank Up the Tunes: Cleaning is so much more enjoyable with a little background music. Grab your speaker and pump up your favorite playlist – trust me, it makes the time fly by.

  5. Scrub, Scrub, Scrub: Using the scouring pads and steel brush, start tackling those tough spots. Don’t be afraid to put in a little elbow grease – the baking soda and Thieves cleaner will do most of the heavy lifting.

  6. Wipe and Rinse: As you go, use a damp rag to wipe away the excess grime and rinse out your tools. You want to keep a clean work surface to ensure you’re not just spreading the dirt around.

  7. Intermission: If you’re starting to feel the burn, take a quick break. Spray the oven one more time with the Thieves cleaner, let it sit for 15 minutes, then get back to scrubbing.

  8. Final Touches: Give the oven one last wipe-down with a clean, damp cloth to remove any remaining residue. Behold your handiwork – a sparkling, grease-free oven that looks almost brand new!

The Lasting Shine

I have to say, I’m thrilled with the results of my DIY oven cleaning adventure. Not only does my oven look amazing, but I can breathe easy knowing I didn’t expose myself or my family to a cocktail of harsh chemicals. And the best part? This all-natural oven cleaner is incredibly versatile – I use it for everything from cleaning the kitchen countertops to tackling stubborn bathroom grime.

So, if you’re like me and have been putting off oven cleaning for ages, fear not! With this simple, homemade solution, you can have your oven looking brand new in no time. Just head over to to stock up on the essential Thieves concentrated cleaner, and get ready to transform your oven from grease-trap to gleaming masterpiece.
