Get a clean oven without chemicals! No toxic fumes and little elbow grease to get the grime off your oven. You’ll be shocked how easy this quick oven cleaning trick is.
I have a confession to make: I have never cleaned my oven.
I’ll let that sink in for a bit.
Eek. We moved here almost 2 years ago and my oven has never been clean.
Now, back it up and understand that I have wiped down my oven and cleaned up spills and what not, and I always clean the stove top.
But from the day we moved in, our oven have had a dark film on it that I just assumed would always be there until we replace it.

Cleaning Your Oven without Chemicals
It’s that baked on oil and smoke and whatever that accumulates over time. It seeemingly impossible to get off without some heavy chemicals and a ton of scrubbing.
And considering in the 2 years we’ve lived here Ryan was a newborn, I was pregnant, and Owen was a newborn, filling up our house with noxious oven cleaner really hasn’t been a priority.
But the other day, I found my new Godsend. You guys, I got my oven door back to brand new in less than 10 minutes.
And I was able to get a clean oven without chemicals. Not a single one.

Let’s first talk about my horrifying “before”:
And this was after 3 minutes of scrubbing. Exactly 3 minutes.
It took me probably 10 minutes from start to finish to get it to look like this. I’ve spent more time cleaning my blinds, people. All I did was scrub, scrub, scrub and off it came. I would recommend using gloves, though, since the scouring stick is very rough. But if that’s the only downside? I’m in.
Long store short: You need one of these super cheap (mine was less than $2) Scouring Sticks RIGHT NOW.
How to Clean Your Oven Without Chemicals
Time needed: 10 minutes.
- Remove items.
Remove any pans, thermometers, etc from your oven. This will make it easier to navigate.
- Wet your stick.
Run your scouring stick under water. This makes it easier to use.
- Scrub away!
Scrub at the metal on your oven. This unfortuntely doesn’t work well on glass.
As you scrub, use a dam cloth (I love microfiber cloths) and wipe away the build up.
- Wipe it down
When you’re done, wipe the whole oven down with water. Scrub any spots you notice you missed.
Okay, so tell me – is this as mindblowing as I think it is, or am I just really easily blow away? Let me know in the comments!
