Hey, this is Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to clean an oven. There are two types of ways to clean. One, is self cleaning. Check your oven to see if it's a self cleaning oven. It will probably, like this one has written on it and most of them do if they're self cleaning. So, that is one way and look at your instructions and see how it works if that's the way you choose to clean it. The other way is just good old scrubbing. So, what I'm doing, I like using natural products and so soda works great. So, depending on, this oven is not that dirty. But, there are some areas right down here on the bottom. So, what you can do is take out your racks and to save time I'm just going to leave that one in. But, sprinkle and you'll wet the bottom also a little bit. Excuse me. Now, if the bottom is really bad, what you're going to want to do is put more soda and a little bit more water and make more of a paste and shut the door and let it just sit for about 24 hours. But, this one is not that bad at all and so what I would do is just carefully scrub it and this sponge has a little bit of a rough texture. So, I would just work with it, trying to get the burned grease spots up and then I would go back with clean water and be sure that you totally clean out the soda before you use your oven. This is Ann Myrick and that is how to clean an oven.
