No need to scrub, put the oven rack in a bag: it becomes like new again


Here's what you'll need:

A large plastic bag that can hold the oven rack.

A dishwasher detergent tablet (or common laundry detergent as a substitute).

A bowl to dissolve the detergent.

Hot water, but not too hot to avoid melting the bag.

3-4 tablespoons of baking soda.

Step-by-Step Cleaning

Place the dishwasher tablet or laundry detergent into a bowl.

Add hot water to the bowl, making sure it's not so hot that it could melt the plastic bag. If the tablet doesn't dissolve entirely, you can break it up using a fork.

Introduce 3 or 4 tablespoons of baking soda to the mixture. This powerful combo will tackle even the most stubborn grime.

Pour the mixture into the plastic bag, ensuring it doesn't puncture the bag.

Place the dirty oven rack into the bag, ensuring it's fully submerged in the mixture.

Securely seal the bag to prevent any spills.

Let the rack soak on a flat surface for about two hours. If the rack is excessively dirty, consider leaving it overnight.

Once done, pull out the rack from the bag and give it a good rinse under running water. The best part? No scrubbing required!

And voila! Your oven rack will shine like new, ready for your next culinary adventure.
