Green cleaning your oven

By Lyndy Mansfield

Here is a natural oven cleaner that you can use if you dislike the horrible over-the-counter chemical cleaners …

This natural oven cleaner works a treat …


½ cup salt
¼ cup borax
450 g box of baking soda
1 cup water
¾ cup white vinegar
10 drops lemon essential oil and the same of thyme essential oil (if you have it)

First mix the the salt, borax and baking powder together.
Add just enough water to make a paste. It will be about a cup.
Take out the racks from the oven and then heat it to about 250C degrees.
Turn it off and spread the paste over the oven walls with a sponge.
Leave for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Now combine the essential oil(s) with the vinegar.
Put into a spritz bottle and spray the whole interior.
Clean it all off with some fine steel wool.
Rinse the inside with a wet warm cloth and then dry.

In case you are not familiar with borax, it is worth your while investing in some. It has a myriad of uses around the house.
