    Cleaning Studio is a Fairfield, Connecticut–based all-natural cleaning shop from Claudia and Angelo Zimmermann. Their oven cleaner comes with a professional-grade metallic scrubber you can use to scrub your appliance before wiping it down with a microfiber cloth. 

    Promising review: "Like many I moved into a house with a used oven. Keeping the typical grease and cooking messes at bay over the years has been a challenge, especially because of its placement in the kitchen (up against a wall in a corner). I tried vinegar and baking soda, Dawn dish soap, then fume-free Easy-Off, which, although effective, is more of a hassle to apply and remove (and wasteful, since I have to cover the heating elements with aluminum foil). Saw this product online and liked the nonchemical ingredients, and decided based on the reviews that it was worth a try. It's not cheap, but this is the only thing that got almost all the residue off my oven surfaces. Nice smell and didn't leave any scratches or marks. I highly recommend rinsing thoroughly and drying with a microfiber cloth for best results." —Irish Eyes

    Get it from Cleaning Studio on Etsy for $17.99+ (available in a plastic or glass container). 

    37. And a jar of the Internet cult favorite The Pink Stuff, which will help you finally conquer that one weird stain that's been bothering you for years. Reviewers say it removes everything from caked-on grease stains to old grout, and especially stubborn and unusual stains that conventional cleaners have failed to get.
