The great bicarb of soda experiment.....not the result I wanted.

Mixed it to a past.  Slapped it on everywhere and left for 12 hours.

Still got an amber coloured oven glass window and some bits still embedded on the hob...around the plates.  And I had to scrub like a mad woman to get the bits off that I did!   If I scrub any more then the enamel will come off!!  Pah!  Bang goes my vision/dream of easy easy clean in.  I'll give it another go and see if it makes any difference.  I used the whole 1kg bag of bicarb, so will have replenish supplies.  Don't know where I'm going wrong.  Maybe my oven and hob are past it?

Was nice not to be breathing in chemicals, though, while I scrubbed away.

Tried to upload photo, but blogger playing up.

the girls from "How Clean is Your House" have a lot to answer for leading us to believe we could do everything with bicarb, vinegar and lemon juice! LOL! If you find something that works shout woodburner glass is getting filthy at the moment..

I will! Kim and Aggie, I'm coming to get you!! lol Not really, they'd have a job on here!

I shall experiment more. My oven door is shameful. It's almost like amber stained glass...with streaks.

I am have a woodburner....I have crappy, cheapo electric fire. Woodburning stove, hopefully being installed in March! yay.
