Cool Nights for Cleaning

If you needed to use the self-cleaning function for your oven, the cool nights were perfect for this task. Just remember to put your pet birds in another room with the door closed. Some birds are sensitive to the fumes that can be emitted when an oven is undergoing the cleaning process.

If you have been making sure there are no large spills in the oven there shouldn’t be smoke when the oven is in the self-cleaning function. According to my stove instructions, a fire can happen if an unusually large spill is left in the oven during the extremely high temperatures (think 900 degrees) of self-cleaning. So wipe up the bottom of the oven!
