Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.


Making Your Cleaning solution

For an all-natural, all-purpose cleaner, fill an empty spray bottle with half water, half distilled white vinegar, and add just 5-6 drops of dish soap. Now mix it up! Close the spray bottle and shake contents lightly to evenly mix your cleaning solution.


Prepare Your Oven

First, ensure your oven is room temperature and remove oven racks. From there, cover the area inside your oven that you want to clean with baking soda and spray the cleaning solution onto the baking soda until saturated. Don’t forget to clean the door! Once you have the area covered, let it sit overnight. Helpful Hint: We recommend letting the solution sit overnight, but if you are tight on time even an hour can make a huge difference!


Power On, it’s Time to Take Care of Business

It’s time to take care of business! Attach the splash guard, backing pad and cleaning accessory to your Dremel Versa. Choose your accessory based on the level of cleaning you require. For this application we are using the Non-Scratch Pad as it gets right into the corners and tight spaces without taking the finish off your oven. Now, let the tool do the work for you. Simply turn on your Dremel Versa and apply light pressure as you run the tool in a circular motion over the surface you are cleaning. The Versa is designed to shut off if too much pressure is applied. As you conquer the clean-up, spray additional water and vinegar solution as needed to keep the cleaning surface wet.


Wipe your Hands Clean of the Mess

After you’ve cleaned the surface, use paper towels to wipe of any residue and reveal your shinny clean oven. Now you’re ready to get cooking.
