Lemon And Baking Soda Are Basically The Best Cleaning Tools Ever.

On most people's list of favorite domestic activities, oven cleaning probably ranks somewhere between scrubbing toilets and cleaning the gutters. Before the advent of self-cleaning ovens, we were stuck scrubbing endlessly, mumbling under our breath and sweating hard to get them looking and smelling right. If you are one of the lucky people who have invested in a self-cleaning oven, take advantage of the easy cleaning it offers. If, however, your oven doesn't have a self-clean function, chances are you're relying on dangerous chemicals found in a spray bottle to scrub your oven.

#2 How to clean an oven naturally

Two of the most powerful natural cleaning products in existence are found not in the cleaning aisle, but in the produce and baking departments. Lemons disinfect surfaces naturally, and their acidic pH helps dissolve grease, gunk, and baked-on messes. Baking soda has gentle yet effective scrubbing power. Used alone or together, these two items can be used to clean everything from your oven to your shower walls and doors.

Sprinkle baking soda onto the surface that needs to be cleaned. Cut a lemon in half, and use the cut side to scrub the surfaces. Bonus: it eliminates odors, as well. This works on:

#3 Cutting boards

#4 Stovetops, including glass burners

#5 Bathroom surfaces

#6 Kitchen counters (except marble and slate)

#7 Inside the refrigerator

#8 Solid brass items

#9 Sinks, faucets, and other fixtures

#10 Stained plastic food containers
