1. Saving The Oven

Casseroles taste great, but they come with one huge disadvantage: they can make your oven an absolute mess. When they bubble over, they tend to leave the bottom of your oven very greasy. The next time your food boils over in your oven, don’t give it a chance to bake on by only cleaning it once the oven is cool. You can prevent this from happening by using a bit of salt and baking soda. All you need to do is combine one-third of a cup of table salt with one cup of baking soda. Fill an unused spray bottle with water and liberally spray your oven surface. Allow the mixture to sit overnight. You’ll see that the residue will have loosened, making for an easy cleanup.
