So Smiley360 gave me a challenge...to get my oven seriously dirty so that I can see how fabulous EASY-OFF Oven Cleaner works. I opted for the Fume Free formula, because I am seriously smell-sensitive.
Let me just be honest and say that it's not exactly a stretch for me to have a dirty oven, particularly after Christmas dinner, which includes glazed ham and apple pie. I know, bad Mommy. The evidence convicts me:
Where'd all that mess come from? Mostly the glazed ham. I use a cola glaze, and it gets everywhere. Want to try it? It's actually pretty simple.
1/2 cup cola (not diet)
1 cup brown sugar
2 TBS mustard. The yellow kind is best.
Mix it up, and when your ham has about a half hour left in the cooking time (I cook mine at 275), pour it on and turn up the heat to 450. It's awesome. But VERY messy and sticky.
Since my biggest excuse for my nastiness is lack of time, I decided to see if you really could have a clean oven after just a two-hour wait. So I foamed it up...you can actually see it working already to lift the grunge off.
Two hours and an extremely filthy sponge later: success!
Is it perfection? No. There are still some clinging bits. But it is CONSIDERABLY better...I don't have to be ashamed to have people seeing anything coming out of this oven. And for me, that says that I need to keep EASY-OFF Fume Free on hand to get rid of both my grime, and my excuses. At least about the oven...
I received a free product from Smiley360 for testing and review purposes. My opinions and shamefully gross oven are my own.
