  • Bicarbonate Sosa and vinegar as a past. Paint on. Leave over night and wipe off. No harsh chemicals.

  • Vinegar & microfiber cloth

  • I put my oven racks and trays into the dishwasher. Cleans them up everytime.

  • Bicarb a little bit of vinegar and water

  • I use koh now and its so fantastic

  • Koh!!

  • I have switched to Koh cleaning products and have found it the best decision I have ever made. I now have the one, non-toxic product used in my entire home. My kids also have allergies/ asthma and have no problems using these products in my home. It makes cleaning easy. I have been very surprised how easily stubborn grime has been removed.

  • Biocarb paste….rub it and cover in aluminum foil.then soak in hot water

  • i’ve heard a lot about koh. and yes cleaning it after every use will help.

  • I’m sure I saw an article on here about using dishwasher tablets. I am not sure they are chemical free but have to have less than oven cleaner. Also a friend who recently got a new oven is wiping it out after every use while its still warm – so far so good on that (although I guess it depends what you are cooking!)

  • I use one/two of my tablets you use in your dishwasher (I buy the Aldi brand) put the racks in a plastic bin, pour hot water over the tablet to dissolve them. If your racks are really dirty leave them overnight. Then scrub off grime easily. I love this method. Baking soda is great with vinegar once you clean them up first. Always wipe them down after cooking to keep them clean.

  • I use Koh products supposed to not have chemicals and cleans really well

  • Mix 3 tbsp Baking soda and 1 1/2 tbsp water . Apply to oven, let sit for 20 minutes, wipe clean. Will need to repeat the process until oven is manageable, then clean weekly.

  • Vinegar and hot soapy water

  • We use Koh on ours and the diamond sponge, we have also heard of baking soda and vinegar and not sure of your chemical allergies but there is also a tip saying to soak them in the bath overnight in hot water with a dishwasher tablet
