Oven racks need to be properly cleaned and maintained to ensure they last for a long time, which can be easily achieved thanks to this video that’s picked up thousands of likes.

The caption on the video reads “This method has been an absolute game changer for my oven cleaning process. When you let them soak, the scrubbing is minimal and they come out looking great.”

All you need to do is simply remove the oven racks, and then place them in a tub. And fill the tub up with hot water, submerging the racks. Add two dishwasher tablets and just let them sit in the hot water for two hours.

After that, simply scrub the racks with a sponge to remove the dirt which has been significantly weakened due to the hot water and dishwasher tablet and then rinse with warm water to remove any excess dirt and residue from the tablet. Pop them back in the oven, where they will naturally dry and they will look good as new.
