I found this cleaner at Dollar Tree that works great at our house. It's called Mean Green. It is a multipurpose cleaner so I can use it to clean the whole kitchen.

Dawn dish soap, hot water, and a nylon scrubbie.  If that doesn't work, Fantastik or Formula 409 work the best.

I use white vinegar & water in a 50-50 mix. I infuse the white vinegar with a couple of lemons before I use it, but you don't have to if you don't want to. The lemon cuts the vinegar smell & is also an additional cleaning element.

I use vinegar to clean too. My kids have severe allergies so I make most of my cleaning products. How do you infuse the vinegar and have you used anything besides lemon?

I get a gallon jug of white vinegar & a fresh lemon or two. I cut the lemon into wedges, then shove the wedges through the opening of the jug. I put the jug in a cool, dark closet for a couple of weeks or a month. When I'm ready to use it, I mix it 50-50 with water in a spray bottle or use it full strength. 

I've never used anything except the lemon, because the lemon adds extra cleaning & disinfecting power to the mix. You could probably add a few drops of an essential oil like lavender or oregano instead if you don't want to use the lemon.

I'm with Rhonda. I use Dawn dish detergent with a good scrubby.

I use 50/50 vinegar and water
For my stove I sprinkle with baking soda and then pour a little vinegar and scrub. My oven has never been cleaner and no chemical smells!
