Us creative types are usually up to 1 of 3 things on the weekend. Creating a mess, cleaning up a mess or out getting inspired for our next mess.

I’ve got helpful green tips and products to help with 2 of those activities!

Cleaning Up Messes: Have one of those pesky casserole stains on the bottom of the oven? Want to increase the efficiency of your faithful cookie oven?

Restore the Earth Grill & Oven Cleaner – spray it on to cut grease and soot using botanical-based ingredients such as coconut and soy oils; use steel wool as a scrubber for the full effect ($9/22 ounces).

Earth Friendly Products Orange Plus Complete – orange solvents in a superconcentrated liquid, so you get more for your money ($8/16 ounces).

DIY: Mix 1 cup of white distilled vinegar, 2 cups of hot water, 1/2 cup of baking soda, and a few drops of lavender essential oil in a spray bottle, shake it up, and you’ve got yourself a cheap, easy oven cleanser (though it takes a lot more elbow grease than the above options).

If you must use the self-cleaning feature, try not to use it more than a couple times a year, and fire it up after you’ve been cooking to make use of heat already lingering in the oven. Once it’s sparkling, maintain it by pouring salt on new spills and rubbing them away while the oven’s still warm.
