Cleaning your oven without poisonous, earth destroying chemicals
Wow. The link to the oven liner still works, two years later. I need one too. This kind works better for me than one not impregnated with fiberglass. Though it is harder to get stain-free, it is easy to clean. I prefer it overt the cheaper plain black silicone ones. I prderted one of these on Aamazon and they sent the cheap black flimsy ones. I compalined top aamazon and got my $ back. - PattyP17
Well, as long as it is not heated above 500 degrees. Some people have ruined their ovens by someone in the household starting the cleaning cycle. I did a lot of research about 1.5 years ago on this and there are some types of newer ovens one cannot use silicone mats in, even if you aren't going to muse the cleaning cycle. Best to read owner's manual. - PattyP17
The problem with turning your oveen on that high for a long time is that it shortens the life oif the oven, whether using the regular highest setting or the cleaning cycle. - PattyP17
Thanks! I'm going to do that! - PattyP17
The vinegar and baking soda didn't work for me on a burned on blob on my oven floor. A bowl of ammonia just sitting in the oven won't work either. Here is what did: I put a sponge in ammonia, placed the sponge on the burned spot, put a bowl upside down over the sponge (to keep the ammonia on the stain), and simply wiped away the stain the next morning. This stuff was burned on cherry pie filling when my pie overflowed. And I didn't want to run the self-clean for one spot.

I've successfully used a razor blade. You know the one sided ones. Perfectly clean.Takes elbow grease!
I clicked on this Instructible with high hopes that it would not be that ubiquitous internet fairly tale about cleaning your oven with baking soda & vinegar. But, alas; here it is again. Let me be plain: THIS DOES NOT WORK. I've tried it many, many times & it removes the kind of light grime you can wipe up with any household cleaner, but does not make a dent in the baked on, crusty stuff. And while we're at it, the other internet cleaning fairy tale about leaving a bowl of ammonia in the oven overnight and just wiping all the crud off in the AM....that doesn't work either. I really wish someone could come up with a less toxic cleaner than EasyOff, but for now, that's the only thing I've found to work.
This is a great post. I find natural cleaner amazing, especially that it is safe and not dangerous to health. Check http://gleem.co.uk/ for cleaning tips.
It's non flammable and will last forever
Hi I don't mean to spoil this for you, but if you buy a silicone rubber matt, you can leave it in your oven at the bottom and it will collect all the grease dripping down from your food and all you need to do to clean it is wipe it off.

How long do you put them in the oven for?I was thinking maybe 30 minutes should do it
