When my wife came home to find our oven racks in the bathtub, she was livid. When she found out why I put them there, however, she immediately apologized.
Oven racks are notoriously difficult to clean, but by just doing this simple trick, you’ll have them clean in no time! According to American Overlook, here’s all that you need for this:
- Soft sponge or toothbrush
- 1 cup of powdered laundry detergent
- A bathtub
First, put the towel at the bottom of the tub to protect it from scratches, then put the oven racks on the towel. Plug the drain and fill the tub with the hottest water possible. Then, pour detergent into a jar and fill it with hot water before shaking it to break down the product.
After you’ve done this, pour the detergent into the tub and let it sit for about 6-10 hours. I usually just leave them there overnight!
The next morning, use a sponge to wipe off any residue, and your racks will be good as new!
