Non-Toxic Oven Cleaner & Miracle Microwave Cleaner

Store-bought oven cleaners are amongst the more toxic cleaning products. Here’s an effective homemade alternative.

Non-toxic oven cleaning paste
You'll need:
½ cup dishwashing liquid
1 ½ cups baking soda
3 drops of citrus essential oil
¼ cup white vinegar
Little bit of water to make the above into a paste.
Take out the racks and any metal trays, wash in hot water and dishwashing liquid.
Apply oven cleaning paste to all surfaces of the oven.
Leave overnight.
Use some warm water and steel wool to scrub off the residue.
Miracle microwave cleaner & deodoriser
Believe it or not, you can clean and deodorise your microwave like magic using just a lemon. Here’s how it’s done.
You'll need:
Small, microwavable bowl
½ cup water
1 large lemon
Clean dishtowel
Pour the water into the bowl.
Slice the lemon in two, squeezing the juice into the water.
Drop the lemon halves into the bowl.
Microwave on high for three minutes or so, until the liquid has begun to boil.
Allow to stand for 5 minutes – do not open the door.
The steam inside will loosen baked-on grime and food residue.
Open the door and wipe all surfaces clean, washing the turntable with hot water.
For any lingering grime, spray on some multi-purpose cleaner leave to stand for a few minutes, then wipe off.
Your microwave should now be clean and fragrant.
