The internet is full of advice on self-cleaning ovens and how to make your own oven cleaner, but I need advice on cleaning non-self-cleaning ovens with store-bought oven cleaner! I know to take the racks out. What I can't find is if I need to take the elements out too?

I have an oven-cleaning spray and rubber gloves and sponge. I should be prepared. I just want to know if there are crucial details I should know about and don't. I wish I knew quite how long the whole thing will take since I'm hoping to do more baking this afternoon.

This should be such a basic household skill, but I've never needed to do this before. Help!
