    This comes with the jar of oven scrub as well as a professional-grade metallic scrubber. You can use this to clean your enamel oven, racks, and the oven door's interior glass panel. Cleaning Studio is a small business based in Fairfield, Connecticut, that sells 100% natural cleaning products and microfiber cloths. 

    Promising review: "I am in absolute shock over how well this works. I really wish I took a before picture. WOW! My oven door window had grime on it for years that I couldn't get off from the previous owners, so I'm estimating it's been like that for four-plus years. Nothing helped to cut through it and finally this oven cleaner made it look brand new. Still in shock!! Would highly recommend. Also, the smell of the product is sooo delightful." —Vanessa
