Within a few days, I saw two pins that advertised an easy way to clean the glass door of an oven!  I was super excited to dry this out because mine was filthy.  I’m actually very embarrassed to show the “before” picture.  Cleaning the oven just seems to be the last thing on my mind these days.  So, I tried a few methods.

The first pin instructed me to sprinkle the glass door with baking soda and then pour vinegar over top so the door is wet.  Let sit for 20 minutes and wipe away.  I tried this technique first.  I have to admit that I loved the fizzing sound the vinegar made once poured over the baking soda.  I had high expectations that the fizzy sound was really working away the grime!  I wiped away and to my dismay (oh, that rhymes), it was still filthy.  I decided to move onto the next idea…

The second pin instructed me to mix 1/4 cup of baking soda with just enough water to make a pasty mixture.  Then, spread over the glass door and let it sit for 20 minutes and wipe away.  So, I did!  Still dirty!

The third try’s the charm.  I got out an SOS pad and scrubbed away.  It took a lot of elbow grease, but my handy SOS pad saved the day!  Now, on to the rest of the oven …

I will try these methods again on a semi-dirty glass door.
