Use Baking Soda to Eco Clean Your Oven

Casa Quickie: Easy, Eco Oven Cleaning

If you're intent on keeping your casa as eco as possible, you'll want to avoid commercial oven cleaners. Most oven cleaners are chock-full of nasty ingredients, including ethers, ethylene glycol, methylene chloride, and other harsh products. These ingredients are a potential poison hazard for kids and pets, and they can also irritate your eyes, skin, and lungs. Yuck!

So instead, try this nontoxic oven-cleaning trick. Stir baking soda and water together until you've formed a paste. Then coat the inside of your oven with the gooey mixture, and let it sit overnight. The next day, simply scour away the paste. To get your oven looking picture-perfect, spray a cloth with a little bit of all-purpose eco cleaner, wipe down, and call it a day.
