Ganked this one from the Monthly Cheapskate Newletter! It is from Judeen C. in Washington. I haven't tried this yet, but you can be sure I will!

My oven was pretty bad, even though it's self cleaning. I just didn't take the time to turn it on, and I LOVE the homemade recipes on this site, so I thought I'd try this. This got the first layer of junk off, but didn't seem to work like I though it should, so I then used another recipe of 5 T baking soda, 3 drops of liquid dish soap and 4 T of vinegar, made a paste, and this worked so well, my oven looks near new. It definitely took some elbow greast and several coatings of paste, but the oven, racks, and grills on top of the stove look shiny and near new. I'll use this as more of an upkeep solution.
