How to Clean Oven Racks

This is a subject I’m sure you probably don’t really want to hear too much about, but it’s still a necessity to keep your oven looking nice.

It doesn’t really take a lot to do when you use this method to clean the racks, but know that it will take a lot less time than if you don’t use this method!

What you will need:

Large bath towel, vinegar, baking soda, and a scouring pad

Place a large bath towel in the bottom of your bath tub to protect the enamel/fiberglass from scratches.

Place your oven racks on top of the towel and spray the racks liberally with vinegar. Pour baking soda over the racks and let sit at least 10 minutes. It will foam and help remove most of the grease and grime.

Cover the racks with hot water and let sit another 10-20 minutes depending on how dirty they are.

Use the scouring pad to loosen the dirt and grime from the racks. Rinse thoroughly and let dry.

Return to the oven, and you are done.

Now that wasn’t too bad. But I recommend you do this at least every 2-3 months to help keep your oven looking really nice.
