    I spray mine with CLR (Calcium Lime Rust), you can get it in the supermarket cleaning aisle. Spray leave, then wipe off with minimal elbow grease.

    Can anyone recommend some good products? Thanks.
    You could also use tea tree oil instead of clove oil with vinegar. Add a capful in a bucket with vinegar and water. You can also mix in water with a spray bottle afterward cleaning to help prevent it from reoccurring.

    I have a top loader. I just have a totally empty machine. Pour the whole bottle in (just the cheap homebrand vinegar from coles), select short hot cycle and turn it on. X

    Love this. I need the laziest, easiest way to clean an oven as I have an inspection next week and no energy to scrub!

    A cream cleanser (eg Jiff) can work well on greasy cook tops or fingerprints on walls as it has mild abrasive properties.

    Best tip ever - clean your oven racks and grill tray by soaking them in a sink or bath in a hot, strong solution of napisan (or similar). Straight hot water from the tap is fine. Leave to soak for a couple/few hours. If they are v bad you might need to do it twice but it's no where near as caustic and smelly as oven cleaner!! (Note: a drop of oven cleaner on polished hardwood floor eats straight through the finish )

    A paste of bicarb and water spread all over the oven (walls/back/door) left overnight can do wonders too. You can also heat up a bowl of vinegar in the microwave and put it in the oven overnight too. Or put a bowl of vinegar top shelf and bowl of boiling water on bottom shelf and shut door.

    Next day you can spritz it with white vinegar again and then wipe it out, most stuff comes off pretty well and you don't need to scrub or use strong oven cleaner with fumes that will knock you out.

    I'm trying this for my oven too, I have sinus trouble and those harsh chemicals have me in a world of pain.
    i make an all purpose cleaner with vinegar, bi carb, lemon and water, I use it for every day quick wipe downs.
    Dh used to have very problematic skin on his back, after switching from fabric softener to vinegar he has no more problems, it was a last resort recommended by a dermatologist, she said fabric softener is one of the worst things ever for our skin.
    with the cast iron things from the stove top I regularly just throw them in the dishwasher- no more scrubbing!
    I get rid of any build up in wet areas with vinegar.
