***Caveat*** CHECK YOUR MANUAL
I've seen a lot of youtube videos on how to freshen up/clean your oven and all includes some form of oven cleaner or vinegar solutions... so let me tell you this... STOP and DONT
BEFORE you ruin your expensive oven for life, take a few minutes.

The majority of ovens now are called self-cleaning (electricity or gas)

NO a maid doesn't automatically come round your house and do it for you !
Unlike back in the day manufactures have designed ovens to self clean.. SO how do you do this.

There is generally a self cleaning setting, when you select this the following happens:

* The oven door locks 
* The oven heats up to 500degs
* Oven goes through a timer, usually a few hours

The effect that the VERY hot oven completely burns to a crisp the grease to a fine powder
which you wipe off with a damp cloth. DONE

Using ANY kind of scourer or chemicals will destroy the special coating that allows the self cleaning...

Well now you know !
