Washing with water and liquid soap will not only give shine to oven but it will also take away bad smell of vinegar. Rinse your oven well so that the salt may not cause any corrosion.

If you don’t want to try overnight method then you could add quarter cup of methylated spirit in the above mentioned oven cleaning mixture and let it sit for 3-4 hours. Spirit will speed up the cleansing action. But use it carefully as spirit can catch fire.
