  1. Take out your oven racks so you can really get in there and get this grimy, dark spots!
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix together 1 cup of baking soda and 1 tsp of water. You will continue to add a tsp of water to the mixture until it becomes a paste.
  3. Once the mix is a paste, spread it all over the oven. Be sure to avoid the heating elements! Let sit for at least 12 hours – overnight is a nice/easier time to let it sit.
  4. After 12 hours, spray vinegar all over the areas you put the paste and wipe away with a damp sponge.
  5. For tough spots- spray with more vinegar and use a stronger sponge like an SOS pad.
  6. That’s it! Once it’s all wiped down, replace your racks and you will have a beautiful, shining oven!
