LOL Norma!!! They're still scraping the grime off the oven deck left by the previous owners.
The oven deck didn't look too bad last week, and I did check it out!
I thought it was neat how the steam rose from the oven right after the wet rag went over the hot deck of the oven. I even thought about trying that myself, but am not too sure about how that wetness would work on my deck.
Somedays stuff does get stuck on my decks too. Steve and I use the rake and brush, but don't use a wet rag. When I go to market to clean on Fridays, I even clean my oven out with a knife and bleach water, but that sure doesn't help on Tuesday. With the reheats of many slices, that is what get my decks messed up.
