“I left my self cleaning oven open overnight to see if it would do the rest of the kitchen”

Many people wonder why a self-cleaning over can’t clean the rest of the kitchen, or the rest of the house. “Why hasn’t anyone taken the idea of ‘self-cleaning oven’ and expanded it to include the rest of the house?  It’s not rocket science, people!” was posted on Twitter by ✨Valerie Is Hopeful✨ on February 8, 2011.

Wikipedia: Self-cleaning oven 
A self-cleaning or pyrolytic oven is an oven which uses high temperature (approximately 932 °F (500 °C)) to burn off leftovers from baking, without the use of any chemical agents. The oven can be powered by domestic (non-commercial) electricity or gas.

So after they invented the self-cleaning oven; why didn’t they continue with the rest of the house? Toilets would be a logical next step.

I have a self-cleaning oven, but I think that’s selfish. I wish it could be bothered to do the rest of the kitchen, too.

I hope to find a self-cleaning oven that’s OCD enough to clean the rest of the kitchen.

I turned on my self cleaning oven and left the oven door open so it can clean the rest of the kitchen when it’s finished.

Get yourself a self-cleaning oven and leave the door of it open overnight. You never know, it might clean the rest of the kitchen as well

Can you teach a self-cleaning oven to do the rest of the house?
