's usually followed by a GIANT DUH!!!!).
Today I decided to try the oven's self cleaner mode... Believe it or not.. We've had a self cleaning oven since we moved stateside from Italy in 1996 and I have NEVER used it. I always did it the old fashioned way, a lot of stinky chemicals, and good ole' elbow grease (till I discovered my baking soda concoction.. YUP a 3am Duh moment.. but it still required a LOT of elbow grease).. I HATE cleaning the oven, I suffer from eczema, and just the THOUGHT of detergents makes me break out...
Well, we've been here several months, and as much as I'd like to avoid using the oven it's been used, and NEEDS a good cleaning. I didn't have any baking soda or easy off.. so I decided to give this self cleaning a try..
MAN this stinks.. The smell is HORRIBLE, and not to mention here in housing our smoke detectors are WAY sensitive ( I mean this thing goes off when you pass gas), and have been going off all morning.. I swear if my neighbors could see me, they'd DIE laughing.. Every time the stupid alarm goes off you see me STOP what I'm doing and stand under it fanning it with our broom.
Sad site I tell ya..
