I’ve had good success cleaning blades with several methods, but I consider oven cleaner to be among the harshest and messiest…it works but no better than many other methods. IIRC, Freud warns against oven cleaners, and long term soaking in Simple Green due to possible damage to the binders.

Instead, I’d try 409, kerosene, Greased Lightning, LA’s Totally Awesome, Fantastic, Goo Gone, and even Windex….whatever you have available in the house. I spray, hit the blade with a toothbrush, rinse and wipe…it’s literally a 3-4 minute process. The important thing is to clean them often.
