When you have a grimy oven that is begging for a deep clean, skip the toxic oven spray cleaners and reach for nontoxic items you already have. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water and generously spread it inside the oven. Let it sit there for several hours or overnight to break down the greasy, baked-on mess, then spray it all with white vinegar to create a bubbly chemical reaction. Wipe down with a sponge to reveal a clean surface inside your oven.
