Household Tip: Non-toxic Oven Cleaning Keeping baked-on messes in check will reduce the amount of fumes released every time you turn on your oven. But noxious, chemical oven cleaners can be the harshest products in your kitchen because they contain corrosive ingredients that can burn skin and trigger asthma attacks (particularly if they’re in aerosol form). I don’t have an auto clean oven and I am very sensitive to the commercially made oven cleaners. So guess what – I don’t clean my oven much. Ewwwwww! That is until I learned about this more natural and non-toxic trick.
