This isn’t only the season of giving. It’s also the season of cooking.

If you’re gearing up to host for the holidays and need to get your kitchen in order, turn to the oven.

In order to keep your oven in tip-top shape, it’s important to clean it beforehand. Ovens can trap grease and food, and without cleaning, it can turn into an expensive problem.

With this simple hack, cleaning the oven is easier than ever.

What you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup ammonia
  • Oven-safe bowl
  • Sponge

What you'll do:

1. Place ¼ cup of ammonia into an oven-safe bowl.

3. The fumes from the ammonia will soften any and all gunk in the oven, so in the morning, you can simply wipe it off with a clean sponge.
