Against The Grain
When is the last time you cleaned your oven? I am not an oven cleaner for one reason…the smell! I cannot stand the smell that comes from the cleaner or from he oven when it is in clean mode. It gives me serious anxiety. In the first 7 years I lived in my current home I cleaned the oven a total of 2 times! I have to leave the house because of that smell…that probably isn’t the best idea either….Then I learned that my fears were totally justified! Oven cleaners contain substantial amounts of sodium or potassium hydroxide, meant to dissolve crusty, baked-on gunk. These chemicals can also burn skin, lungs and eyes. So, when I felt like I couldn’t breath when the oven was being cleaned… it was probably because I couldn’t breath!
