Our Green Giveaway Winner . . . Plus an Eco-Recipe for Oven Cleaner

Nontoxic oven cleanerLast week we asked you to reveal your deepest, darkest, most toxic secrets as a part of our first giveaway.  Your candid “toxic confessions” were indeed shocking.  We’ve randomly chosen from our list of commenters, and the winner is . . . Mimi!  Congratulations, Mimi.  You will soon be the proud owner of Shaklee’s disinfectant wipes and oven cleaner, thanks to Green and Clean Mom.  Now get rid of that carpet cleaner you’ve admitted to keeping hidden in your carpet-free house! 

Well, that’s great for Mimi, but what about the rest of you?  You confessed to harboring everything from bleach to scrubbing bubbles under your kitchen sinks.  It’s time to head on over to a hazardous waste facility and drop the offenders off where they can be quietly and safely dispatched.  But now you’re left with no household cleaners and your oven’s a mess.  You could do what I do, which is nothing.  Or you could whip up a little homemade oven cleaner for just a few cents.  I got this recipe from the Mrs. Clean website

Chemical-Free Natural Oven Cleaner

5 T Baking Soda

3 drops Liquid Dish Soap

4 T White vinegar

Mix the above ingredients into a thick paste. Use a sponge to apply the oven cleaner to the inside of the oven and then scrub with a scouring pad.  Rinse thoroughly and wipe the oven clean.

Happy green cleaning, everyone.

  1. Thanks for the great tip – I wonder if I could use the oven cleaner with a self cleaning oven – I can’t stand the smell the oven puts off when it is in the self cleaning mode and would love to avoid putting it on altogether.
