What you need
You don't need to stress yourself or get upset with the cost of cleaning agents. You can do what our forefathers did and use homemade cleaners to get your crusty oven clean. All you need is some water, white vinegar, baking soda, rubber gloves, damp cloth, spray bottle, wooden, plastic or silicone spatula
Take out the trays and racks, the oven thermometer, pizza stone, and anything else you have inside the oven.
Take 1/2 cup of baking soda and mix it with few drops of water until you have a spreadable paste.
Best to wear rubber gloves, then coat the interior surface of your oven with the baking soda paste you prepared. The baking soda will turn a dark brownish color as you continue to rub it on dirty and greasy surfaces.
Let it sit overnight.
You can use the same baking soda paste or, use the manufacturer's instructions on the appliance manual to clean the oven racks, oven thermometer, pizza stone and other removable components.
After leaving overnight, use a damp cloth and clean out all the paste from the oven. If the damp cloth is not enough for you, use a spatula to scrape off the remaining baking soda paste as needed.
Using a spray bottle, spray a little white vinegar to remove the baking soda paste residue.
Again, take your damp cloth and wipe out the remaining mixture which could turn a little foamy in the oven.
Replace the parts you have previously taken out.
A regular cleaning timetable according to how much you use your oven will help make your oven stay in working order longer but that doesn't mean it will prevent it from breaking down.
