Standard oven cleaners contain lye and petroleum distillates and come in aerosol containers. None of this is good for your health…and certainly not good for the environment. Standard oven cleaners carry a health rating of 3, which means they cause serious health effects and they are known to cause burns to skin, eyes, mouth, throat, and even stomach – on contact! Overspray has also resulted in permanent damage to flooring and countertops.
Norwex Oven and Grill Cleaner carries a health rating of 1, comes in a pump (which sprays very eff ectively, resulting in less use of product), and is also much friendlier from an environmental standpoint due to its ingredients and packaging. The primary active ingredients are enzymes and bacteria which do an amazing job of naturally breaking down baked-on fats, oils, greases, proteins, and carbohydrates. Simply heat the oven to 100 F, apply, wait for 5 minutes, and wipe with an Envirocloth. Really tough spots may require a second treatment and/or scrubbing with a Spirisponge. Use of gloves is recommended…as this cleaner is amazingly effective, and prolonged contact could result in some skin irritation.
One testimony that Head Office has received for this product:
I have had absolutely amazing results with the Norwex Oven & Grill Cleaner! Within 10 minutes, from start to finish, my oven was spotless WITHOUT the mess and fumes. My oven and racks look like new – I have never had it so clean! This was a whole new experience with a very positive outcome!
