Cleaning my oven

Hello!

I need some help. I'm not sure if I'm being overly picky or if my oven is really out of control. I cook a lot with olive oil and my oven has a lot of brown stains on the sides. I've been trying to get them out with soap, water, and some good scrubbing but it's just not working. I'm hesitant to use a hardcore oven cleaner since we have a tiny apartment that is poorly ventilated.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks I could use? I'm in Spain so it's pretty likely I can't find any brand name cleaners. 

Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Baking soda and vinegar. Let it set for a while, then scrub out the mess.

    This is exactly what I use and it works! The best part is no harsh chemical smell.

    Agreed.

    You could even just sprinkle baking soda in the oven, let sit, and then scrub with a coarse sponge and hot water.  Sometimes, though, the baking soda may leave behind a white-film residue - if this happens, just spritz with a multi surface cleaner (I like Windex multisurface w/vinegar) and it will take it right off and shine it.
