You can clean the oven racks with a minimum of effort, using just a few things that you already have at home. The same trick can be used to clean the burned bottom of the pan or from the oven or grill.
You need an old towel, a kitchen sponge or toothbrush, powder or liquid detergent (laundry or dishes, depending on the type you have at home).
Finally, most of the dirt from the grill is gone and you only need to use a toothbrush or sponge to remove the remaining stains. It will only take from 6-10 minutes to do that. For some added abrasion you can use laundry detergent. The results will be pretty excellent!
You should know that it’s better not to leave your oven racks in the oven during the self-clean cycle because it can strip the chrome off the rack and permanently damage it. Besides, this method doesn’t involve effort and the oven racks almost clean themselves.
