Clean Your Oven With Vanilla So It Always Smells Good

Posted: Updated:

Like most people, we’re reminded of some of our favorite memories by a distinct smell. Whether it was our grandmother’s cooking in the kitchen or mom’s perfume in the bathroom, when we walk into a home we always appreciate a great scent. If you’re looking for an easy way to fill your abode with a wonderful aroma all you have to do is clean your oven with one special ingredient.

Simply wash down the appliance as normal. Yum Universe found a great DIY natural oven cleaner that involves soap, baking soda and white vinegar. Then, take a cloth and pour a few drops of vanilla extract onto it and rub down the machine. When the oven is turned on, the whole house will smell like delicious cookies.

While you might be thinking it’ll get expensive using the extract every time you clean, we suggest trying this trick when you’re having company or if you’re trying to sell your house.
