Cleaning the heart of your kitchen, the oven does not have to use harsh chemicals or costly store-bought cleansers. You may obtain astonishing results while being kind to the environment and your health by making your oven cleaner. 

Let’s look at the advantages and applications of this natural cleaning solution.

Why Should You Use a Homemade Oven Cleaner?

Ordinary oven cleansers frequently include harsh chemicals that create toxic fumes and can be dangerous if ingested or come into contact with your skin. 

In contrast, homemade oven cleaners harness the power of natural materials, decreasing your exposure to potentially dangerous compounds. Making your own cleaner is also less expensive and more adaptable, allowing you to tailor the recipe to your preferences.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

Baking soda is a multipurpose cleaning ingredient that aids in the removal of grease and grime.

Water: Serves as a binding agent in the formation of a paste.

White Vinegar: Excellent for breaking down harsh residue and removing odors.

Dish Soap: Aids in the removal of grease and increases cleaning power.

Essential oils (optional): Provides a pleasant smell while enhancing cleaning capabilities.

Recipe for Homemade Oven Cleaner:


1/2 teaspoon baking soda

(As needed) water

1 tbsp dish detergent

1 tablespoon white vinegar

10-15 drops essential oil (for example, lemon, lavender, or tea tree)


To make a paste, combine the baking soda and enough water to make a spreadable paste. Adjust the amount of water as needed.

Remove the oven racks carefully and spread the paste evenly to the internal surfaces of the oven, avoiding the heating elements. Concentrate on spots that have accumulated filth.

Let it Allow the paste to settle for several hours or overnight. This allows it to degrade oil and baked-on residue.

Scrub with a moist cloth or sponge to remove the paste. You’ll find that the filth is easier to remove.

Vinegar Rinse: Combine white vinegar and essential oil in a spray bottle. Spritz the liquid inside the oven to help neutralize odors and remove residual baking soda residue.

Wipe the inside of the oven with a clean, wet cloth to remove the vinegar and residue.

Replace Oven Racks: Once everything is dry, replace the oven racks.

Advantages of Making Your Oven Cleaner:

Natural Ingredients: Stay away from harsh chemicals and pollutants.

Environmentally Friendly: Use natural substances to reduce your ecological footprint.

Cost-effective: These ingredients are most likely already in your pantry.

Adjustable essential oils provide a customized fragrance.

Cleaning Power: The abrasive texture of baking soda and the acidic characteristics of vinegar combine to form a potent cleaning combo.
