 1. One of the most unpleasant cleaning tasks is getting rid of the grease and g
 rime that builds up inside your oven. Make a paste of 1 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup
  powdered laundry detergent. Heat your oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees and tu
 rn off. Spread the paste around the oven, applying it more heavily to very grea
 sy areas. Leave the paste on for an hour, then use a plastic spatula to gently 
 scrape the dirt away.
 2. To prevent grease, grimy buildup in your oven from happening in the first pl
 ace, dip a sponge in full-strength vinegar and wipe down all sides of the oven.
 3. If you've already used a commercial oven cleaner to tackle your oven, you ca
 n remove the smelly residue by spraying the surfaces with a mixture of equal pa
 rts vinegar and water. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
