How to Clean Your Oven With No Harsh Chemicals

We moved into this house over 4 years ago and not once has it occurred to me to clean the oven. {{{insert embarrassing palm slap here}}}.

I used to think my sons’ toilets were the grossest thing in our house, but clearly, after taking on this challenge, I see that it was our oven! EEK! Be prepared to be shocked, my friends. I’m slightly embarrassed. But I also realize that if mine is gross, yours probably is a little gross, too. It’s hard to keep up with laundry, much less ovens!

Thankfully, I found a solution that helped clean it up without killing off a few brain cells from the fumes. Hope this info helps you, too!

Here’s what our oven looked like before I got my hands on it:

The HomeRight Steam Machine is my favorite cleaning tool (even for stinky little boy toilets!). I did a full video tutorial and review on my experience with the Steam Machine (which you can view HERE). It really takes cleaning to a whole new level, guys.

Watch the Video!

Check out the video to see exactly how I did it! It took about a good hour and 1/2. But the great thing is that I could do it with my kids nearby and had no worries about harsh chemicals while cleaning out the grimy oven!


I used the wired brush attachment that comes with the Steam Machine, and while it did a great job…

….it got a little gunked up because my oven was so dirty! LOL.

This metal bristle attachment also does an amazing job of cleaning grout lines, too! Hubby and I own a townhouse rental and this past summer I was getting the place ready for the new tenants. The kitchen tile was gross, but that little attachment, with all the steam, brought it back to life and saved me time and money by not having to re-grout it.

But anyhow, here’s my stove! Not perfectly clean (because I gave up after awhile–it was Valentine’s Day, after all….), but a huuuugge improvement!
