Is it harmful to smell the fumes of a self cleaning oven.I was at work today and had to clean an appartment with my coworkers. The oven inside was really bad, so one of my coworkers turned the dial to self clean. The smell was so bad that I felt sick in the stomach even got a headache from the smell. It took two hours to self clean the oven. We were in the appartment for 4 hours to clean the rest of it while the oven was on. So I was wondering if the smell is harmful.
