Yes, folks, I cleaned my oven. Now, many of you probably clean your oven frequently. I bet it shines. Until yesterday, I didn’t know the inside of my oven was blue.
Let me give you a little back story. My husband and I love Totinos pizzas. They’re delicious and inexpensive (and unhealthy, I know, but they’re yummy…). You cook them directly on the oven rack, so pieces fall down to the bottom of the oven. Well, I avoided cleaning the oven for a long time. Let’s just say that we would know dinner was done when the fire alarm went off. Why? Because every time you opened the oven, smoke would come out and set off the fire alarm! We’d gotten very good about waving a towel in front of it.
Okay, so I decided to try the Easy Off Max Fume Free Oven Cleaner. First, I sprayed the interior of my (cold) oven and shut the door. I waited two hours and then braced myself to clean the mess. I doubled two plastic grocery sacks, cut and folded paper towels in half, got them wet, and laid them out in a grid for easy grabbing. I did open the windows, because the lemon scent was a bit strong, but there were no “fumes.”
Make sure you wear gloves. I used yellow, kitchen gloves, and they’re now stained lovely dark colors.
I was so surpised at how well the Easy Off worked. The charred bits wiped off like water. It was extremely messy to clean up, and I went through a lot of wet paper towels (I’m glad I cut them in half to be economical), but my oven is now clean! Hooray! So, the next time your fire alarm goes off when you open your oven, consider Easy Off Oven Cleaner.
