So....today's cleaning tip & product review....brought to you by Lainey-Paney.
Easy Off oven cleaner... bought a can of this. We have a KitchenAid Self-Cleaning Convection Oven. My husband loves it. I barely know how to use it, and for the life of me have still not figured out the steps to use the digital timer without setting the damn thing to cook for hours & hours.
Anyway....so the self-cleaning feature....yeah, I tried that. I don't know, but it was probaby human error for whatever reason it did not work properly. So, it just seemed to me that it would be easier to get a can of Easy Off & clean the darn thing.
Get my can, get it home, take the lid off....read the directions.
WARNING: NOT FOR USE ON CONVECTION OVENS.
So....here's where a good use for Easy Off comes in...
If you cook in pyrex baking dishes...you know how they can get all caked-on-baked-on gross? Spray it with Easy Off---let it sit in the sink for a little bit---and the cruddy gunk will just wipe right off & you'll have brand new looking sparkly clean Pyrex again.
And now for the big product review...
Disposer Cleaner packets...
Got them at Target. You run the disposal to make sure it's empty. You run hot water in the sink & then turn the flow down to a trickle. You put one of the little yellow "biodegradable" packets in your disposal & turn it on. Blue bubbles filled both sinks (we have a double sink). It smelled all lemony & good....and afterward, my sinks looked all sparkly new. So that was good.
My only questions...which I don't know the answer to---what's in it/how bad are the chemicals for the environment, and is it any more effective than lemon peel & baking soda? I don't know.
But, it was quick & easy, and made me feel like I was doing something around the house, you know???
Look at me! I'm suddenly a domestic diva!
