I am cleaning an exterior of an oven, and also cleaning the interior of an oven, but we're only talking about the exterior right now.  I used baking soda, water, and vinegar.

Here are some grunge fashion shots of the dirty oven.











Some of this stuff isn't even mine.



Ok, ok, my eyes!  Let's clean this up.







Aaaaand now we're clean again.

Here is my submission for the Nest - Sand - Alice - Deep Clean the Exterior of a Stove/Oven BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided a 2-minute video of:
  - the dirty exterior of the stove/oven
  - an action shot of oven during cleaning (scrubbing the glass top of the stove/oven)
  - the oven pulled out - before, action, and after images of cleaning the area behind and under
  - an after picture of clean exterior of the stove/oven
  - two photos showing usual cleaner and cleaners used for this BB

The usual glass top cleaner is EarthBright - a biodegradable cleaner
Today's cleaners: hydrogen peroxide and baking soda mixed together into a paste and a scrubby sponge

Staff note (jordan barton) :

i hereby certify this badge bit complete!
