{20 Day Challenge} Day 10 - Cleaning the Oven

Wow! I can't believe we are already half-way through the 20 Days to Organise and Clean Your Home Challenge - and what better way to celebrate than with Cleaning the Oven! ugghhh.

I had a feeling that this task was going to be on the list. I was in denial. I didn't want to clean the oven. I hate cleaning ovens, I really, really do.  I have probably only cleaned an oven three to five times in my lifetime. In my previous houses (rentals), I cleverly designated this job to other people - my mum, my friend (such a good friend) and last year I payed a professional cleaner to clean the oven after I moved out (worth every cent).

I have used a range of oven cleaners that you can buy from the supermarket - almost passing out from the fumes, and have also just used soapy water & a Steelo. 

The Organised Housewife has a great post on How to Clean the Oven on her website (this is what I did to clean mine). I have to say Bicarb soda & Vinegar Combination is now my best 'cleaning' friend. I had my own little science experience happening in my oven today (lol). 

I am AMAZED at how clean the oven looks now. It's so shiny - I never want to use it again. I can actually see through the glass panel on the front. The racks came up pretty good too after a bit of scrubbing with a Steelo **I used the Steelo to clean the grease off the glass panel as well. Such a great tool to have.  

Some other useful posts about How to Clean the Oven I found useful. You can check them out here and here.

I am STOKED to give Day 10 - Cleaning the Oven a BIG TICK. Woohoo.

Now to take a break from the cleaning & enjoy the weekend with my family.
Have a great weekend everyone.
