If you use your oven only during the holiday season, now is a good time to give the inside a thorough cleaning. First, avoid using chemical degreasers and sprays to clean your oven; what’s unsafe to breathe should never be used where you prepare food. Just reach for baking soda instead. Make a thick, creamy paste with water, then coat the entire inside of your oven with the mixture. Let it sit for several hours to naturally break down the grime inside, then wipe off with a damp rag.
