Honey, I gassed the Kids.

on July 2, 2014

It certainly seemed like I was gassing myself when I tackled the oven cleaning. Of course I sprayed it just before lunch, so of course we could smell the fumes as we sat in the dining room. And the kids carried on as if I was gassing them. But we survived. As I knew we would.

After lunch I sprayed the shelves that I had removed, left them for a while, gave them a rinse off and then put them in the dishwasher on the pot cycle. I hadn’t tried that before.

It did a cracker of a job!

It’s a shame the cleaning of the oven itself isn’t as easy. When we replaced the oven in our previous house, we bought one with pyrolitic liners, meaning it was easy clean. Then we ended up moving. C’est la vie.

Got any tips for fume free oven cleaning?
