Cleaning enthusiasts have revealed a clever hack for transforming greasy oven racks to make them look sparkling new.
Posting to the popular Australian Facebook group Mums Who Clean, multiple women have told how they add laundry powder to a bath of hot water to rejuvenate their metal shelves, claiming it removes food and grime with ease.
One woman said she used the brand Biozet Attack laundry powder, while another said she tried the Di San Oxy laundry soaker wash – and both were effective at making the racks look like new again.

‘To the lady that posted about cleaning her oven racks in the bath tub with washing powder, thank you!
‘I have never been able to get mine so clean ever before!’ one woman said and shared images on Facebook.
‘I cannot thank you enough for making this daunting task so simple!’
To clean the oven racks, the mother placed a towel at the bottom of the bath to prevent scratches, then laid the oven racks on top before adding the water and detergent.

In a jug of hot water, she added three scoops of washing powder and poured it into the bath once dissolved.
‘Continue adding hot water until oven racks are covered, leave it to sit overnight and then in [the] morning wipe over with steel wool and rinse in cold water,’ she said.
The strong ingredients in the laundry powder remove tough food stains and grease.
Hundreds were impressed with the simple hack and many who had previously used the laundry detergent said it ‘works wonders’.

‘Napisan or any other powder stain remover works even better,’ one woman said.
‘It’s the only way to clean oven racks – I also add a big scoop of bicarb to the water,’ another said.
A third joked: ‘I wish I could put whole oven in the bath.’
