How to use baking soda to remove carbon deposits from the interior of ovens

Food deposits and grease that accumulate in your oven and are not cleaned off regularly get baked over and over again, every time you use your oven. Over time, these deposits solidify and transform into potentially unhealthy black carbon deposits within your oven. The carbon deposits lend a slightly burnt and unappetizing flavour to cooked food. While you can use regular commercial oven cleaners to keep your home clean and get rid of the carbon deposits, you risk exposing yourself to corrosive chemicals like sodium hydroxide, butane and other harmful fumes from these cleaning agents. These chemicals can cause irritation to your eyes, skin and respiratory system. Baking soda is a non toxic, eco-friendly and cost effective alternative to caustic chemical oven cleaners. It can be safely and easily used to clean carbon deposits that line the interiors of your oven.
