Then I did some research and I learned a perfect non-toxic oven cleaning technique.
Let me share it with you!
1. Spray your favorite all purpose cleanser on the dark, baked in spots that will not easily come off with a cleaning cloth and a little elbow grease. I love Seventh Generation's All Purpose Cleaner.
2. Wait 3-5 minutes.
3. Use a razor blade to scrape the baked on, thick mess off! Make sure the parts you are scraping with the razor blade are still wet, this is very important.
4. Wipe down with a wet rag following to shine and polish!
I used a basic razorblade, I don't recommend this. Use a real scraper.
The after shot of my oven door! For real! 5 minutes later and a little scraping. No toxic cleaners were used, which is the best part!
This is the type of scraper I recommend, they cost about $2 and are way safer!
