Are your oven racks clean or are they starting to collect dirt?

Last month, we walked you through how to clean the inside of your oven. And while we are sure it may have been a bit tedious, your oven should be sparkling on the inside. Now it’s time to move on to those oven racks. They might be a bit grimy and will need to be cleaned as well.

How to Clean Your Oven Racks

Just like the interior of your oven, cleaning the oven racks takes a little bit of time. Four hours to be exact. However, you can clean the oven racks at the same time you are preparing the oven to be wiped down. Doing this will make your life so much easier.

Here is what you are going to need:

Old Towels
Dishwashing Detergent

Your first step is to line the bottom of your tub with old towels. This will prevent the oven racks from scraping or scratching the surface of your tub.

Next, you are going to place the racks in the tub, adding hot water and dishwasher detergent. Mix the detergent into the water and let the racks soak in the water for a couple of hours. Just like we have mentioned before, they should sit in the tub for about four hours – overnight if you want to clean both the oven racks and the tub at the same time.

Once the water and soap have had enough time to work its magic, you can start to scrub all of the grime off. Using a sponge, wipe down the racks. Make sure you get as much dirt and grime as possible. The one thing left to do is rinse them off and dry with a couple of leftover towels.
