Does anyone know of any home remedies to use to clean an oven? I cooked chicken and all the grease ran off the pan to the bottom and smoked the whole house. Needless to say the oven is a mess and I don't have any oven cleaner.

Heat the oven; a relatively low temperature is fine. Switch off! Now put a saucer of ammonia inside and leave overnight. The next morning you should be able to clean the oven with dishwashing liquid in hot water. Also wash the shelves in hot water with ammonia added. Be sure to ventilate well. (08/27/2006)
Sprinkle baking soda inside the oven, then use a spray bottle to spritz some water. You want the baking soda slightly wet, but not too wet. Leave on for a couple of hours. Then you can scrub the oven with a scrubbie, and it will take a lot of it out. (08/30/2006)
If not too heavy and long baked on, try straight Coke overnight on "warm", like the army used to clean their ovens. This is why Coke is too strong to be drinking, catching up with folks after it's too late. (09/05/2006)
