Ovens: Cleaning
 
 

oven

 

Save money cleaning your oven by not using the self-cleaning feature of your oven.  The oven cleans itself by turning the temperature up to a very high heat and burning off residue.  This high temperature wears out the heating element.

 

Your oven will last longer, and be more thrift friendly if you gently clean it.  You can place a pan of ammonia in it overnight.  In the morning you can usually wipe the interior clean.

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money cleaning ovens.

- Put some ammonia in a pan and place it in your oven overnight. The surface will wipe up easier the next day.
 
- Guard against spills by placing a baking sheet under items that might spill, such as pumpkin pie.
 
- Don't use harsh chemicals cleaning your oven.  Use baking soda and vinegar.
