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.
some additional frugal tips to save money
- 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.
