1½ cups Baking Soda
2 Tablespoons Salt
¼ cup Vinegar
Water (if needed)

Combine the soap, baking soda, salt in a bowl.
Add in the vinegar, just a little at a time as it will fizz,  until it forms a paste.  If the mixture is too thick to spread, add in a little bit of water.
Spread the natural oven cleaner all over your oven using a pastry brush, covering it completely.
For best results, let it sit for more than 4 hours.
Then you’re able to wipe it off and enjoy your naturally clean oven!  Go ahead and bake yourself cake to celebrate!
