Clean Oven With Ammonia By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Oh, how I love you for telling us how to use ammonia in the oven. . . and especially to plug up the vents. . , But. . . . why stop there? Put your burner rings and drip pans on the oven shelves at the Hints From Heloise same time and they too will wash clean in a wink. I also put my muffin pans or other baking dishes on these same oven shelves and utilize the same time and energy. Wonderful. Kathy Wright Dear Ladies: For those who missed it, here's how we told you to clean an oven: We have tried many methods and have found two excellent ones. Our first preference is to fold a bath towel in fourths or sixths and lay it on a rack in your oven. I wet the bath towel with water first and wring it out thoroughly. Then pour a cup or two of ammonia over this bath-towel. Be sure to plug up the vents in your oven with wet paper towels, damp wash cloths, or a wet hand towel. We found damp sponges even better for some type vents. The reason for plugging up the vents is ... we have found that the little elf who does the dirty work in that oven and gets all of that carbon arid soil from the sides and shelves is done by the fumes of the ammonia itself. So ... if we can keep these fumes in the oven without letting them escape through the vents this is our answer. We also found, you can leave this overnight or four or five hours. Then wash as usual with a vinegar and water solution. And gals, when we say a vinegar and water solution it means take a potful of warm water and with about a fourth-cup of vinegar in it. You can also clean the oven by taking a spray bottle of the type used in window cleaning and filling it with a solution of one- half ammonia and one half water. Then spray the walls of your oven and close the door quickly. Still cover up the vents. This method should be used very carefully. You and I both know that ammonia is very dangerous. Do not leave this bottle sitting around where children can get into it. Read the caution label on your bottle of ammonia. If you really have the spirit and want the doggone thing perfect, have the time and a wash tub or bathtub. . . here's an easier way: Remove anything and everything that will come loose from the oven — and while you are Installation Of Officers Yesterday at a meeting in Elliott hall, Mrs. Glenn Moon installed newly elected WMS officers of First Baptist Church and re-dedicated those who are beginning their second year of service. Officers are: president, Mrs. Sherwin Snyder; secretary, Mrs. Ronald Haug; treasurer, Mrs. C. W. Hegberg; first vice president, Mrs. James Grogan; vice Maza Evans WMS Circle Maza Evans WMS Circle meeting in North Baptist Church yes- day opened with a prayer by Mrs. Fred Shoemaker. Mrs. 0. 0. Tucker presided and, for devotions, read from an article written by Dr. and Mrs. Fountain, missionaries in the Congo. Members discussed White Cross work and took a love gift offering of $3.80. Mrs. Tucker gave the closing prayer. president of departments, Mrs. George Underwood, Mrs. J. R. Henning, Mrs. John Pinney, Miss Amanda Rosenquist, Mrs. Mae McAnelly; departmental Mrs. Orville Glenn, Mrs. Cecil Wolgast, Miss Lena Hutchins, Mrs. Frank McNutt, Mrs. Raymond P. Jennings, Mrs. Wilma Reynolds, Mrs. John Reynolds, Mrs. Tom Dillen, Mrs. Merle Willhite, Mrs. A. W. Urquhart, Mrs. C. W. Henning, Mrs. Margaret Adrian, Mrs. Howard Henderson and Mrs. Clara Sinclair. Mrs. George Greer, retiring president, presented Mrs. Snyder with the symbolic gavel of her office. Rev. Herman Van Arsdale, Dell Rapids, S. C., spoke on the meaning of love. He is one of a team of seven who have been at the church for a Faith at Work Week. Mrs. James Allen gave a vocal solo during the installation, accompanied by Mrs. Eldon Rader. The society voted to give $500 to the organ repair fund. Mrs. Greer poured punch from a table decorated with spring flowers. Retiring officers and circle chairmen were hostesses. at it. . . all the parts from the top of the stove, the drip pans etc. and put them in your tub. Turn on the hot water faucet and let the tub start to fill up with water. While it's filling, go to your kitchen and get that box of detergent ... the type you use to wash clothes! Dump about two cups of detergent in the still - running hot water. The water will mix the detergent for you. Let the water run until it completely covers all the dirty parts. Walk out of the room and forget it! The next morning, (or six hours later, if you are in a hurry) you will find all the residue absolutely floating on top of the water! All it takes then is a little vegetabe brush and a few minutes of your time to brush off remaining particles. First: Pull the plug from the tub. Fill a small bowl with soapy water. (I put the bowl in my tub.) Turn on the faucet again. Scrub the parts with the brush and hot water and suds. Rinse under the faucet! I place a bath towel on the floor and as each piece is washed and rinsed, I stand them up against the wall on the bathtowel and let them drain. This saves dripping water through the house. , . or wiping them dry with a sponge and towel. The trick about this idea is that you will get rid of all those carbon spots which are in the crevices of the oven racks (especially in the corners) without breaking a fingernail and using hours of valuable time. It's a good feeling to have a clean oven. And while you are at it. . . if you have an oven with a glass "peek-hole," remove that (just unscrew the litUe screws) and plop it into the magic cleaner too.
