Use this simple ingredient to tackle oven rust

I’m sure many of you, just like me, spend a ton of time cooking in the kitchen. And all of that cooking, unfortunately, tends to accumulate.

You’re cooking your favorite meals, the food releases steam, and you smell all these beautiful . Once you take your food out of the oven, all that steam condenses inside, and over time, rust forms.

Long story short, if you love using your oven, you’ll have to deal with rust. That’s the unfortunate truth behind it!

The rust will show up everywhere! On the oven glass, on your oven racks, and even in your cookware if you store it inside the oven. Like we all do!

This is what I had to deal with the other day. My oven racks got completely rusty, and let me tell you, they’re not easy to clean! Not at all!

How to Get Rid of the Oven Rust?

For the inside of the oven:

Take one of your baking dishes, fill it up with water, and add two halved lemons into the oven and ”bake” in the oven for 20 minutes at 400F. Remove the bowl, sprinkle your oven with the light layer of baking soda, and squeeze out the lemon juice onto the baking soda.

Now use a scrub with a microfiber cloth to get it all off. I swear it works.

For the oven racks:

Pop those babies into your bathtub. Cover with baking soda and spray with vinegar. I used one of the travel bottles like this to spray it out evenly.

Then just brush them and wash them with your shower head. Easy peasy. And it really works!

I love using natural products for cleaning the oven because it actually can get into your food! So, we must go all natural!
