Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

I am not a sloppy or messy cook. I clean up after myself as I go.
but dear readers, I give up.
can someone please tell me how on earth I can remove those splatter marks
on the glass in the oven door.
it doesn't matter what I do to prevent splattering during roasting, whether I cover the food with foil or put the meat in a bag
those brown marks always seem to appear.
I always wipe the oven down when finished cooking; including the door
but that doesn't help either
Last night, I took it into my head to start cleaning my stove & oven - I have tried everything - sunlight soap, hot water and a scourer; a paste of lemon juice and bicarb soda (which I must say, did help a little) but it just doesn't look clean. Then I tried to scrape it off with the end of a spoon, this worked but is so tedious.....
it is very admirable to be green, but let's be honest
- some natural cleaning methods just don't work.

I've read that vinegar can be quite good for taking marks off the oven doors...

I know what you mean, if this is any comfort, I have the same problem but sadly no solution.
