4 Things You Didn’t Know Oven Cleaner Could Clean
Think your bottle of oven cleaner is a one-hit wonder? Think again. You can actually use it to clean the following four things:
1. Stained Pyrex dishes: Spray on the oven cleaner and place the dish in a tightly sealed garbage bag overnight. In the morning, scrub away the stains and wash the dish thoroughly.
2. Your curling iron: Remove product build up by dampening a cloth with oven cleaner and wiping down the iron. Then wipe down the curling iron with a cloth dampened with water.
3. Grease spots on your driveway: If your car has developed a leak, banish those oil stains by squirting some of the cleanser on the spots. Let it work for a few minutes then wash away with a high-powered hose.
4. Sap-covered garden tools: Dissolve the sticky sap by spraying the tools with oven cleaner and letting them sit in a sealed plastic bag for several minutes. Be sure to wash thoroughly.
