Posting on Instagram as part of her 'cleaning tip Tuesday' series, Lynsey showed her 179k followers how to get a pristine oven in just three steps.

'Ovens are perfect for making delicious meals but can be neglected,' she writes in the caption. 'Here is my very simple three-step natural process.'

'To de-grease and clean your oven make it wet and then cover the whole oven with bicarbonate of soda,' she explains, demonstrating the step on the post.

'Secondly, grab a spray bottle add just white wine vinegar and then spray the bicarb,' she continues. 'Close the door and leave an hour.'
