How to clean an oven
There are many oven cleaning products available to buy at supermarkets.
However, these do not always come cheap and may not be necessary.
One homeowner explained she simply used fabric softener to get rid of grime on her oven racks.
She posted a picture of her oven rack showing she had used to hack on one half which was notably cleaner.
“I actually hate cleaning my oven racks,” she wrote.
“Saw a tip for soaking them in hot water with fabric softener and thought it was worth a shot.
“It works like a dream! Can you tell which half I’ve soaked?
A social media user commented: “Going to try this! Definitely one of my worst jobs!”
One more said: “That’s great! Will give it a try.”
Another added: “Will have to give it a try! Now I need something to clean the rest of the oven now.”
“Oh wow, I’m trying this,” added another homeowner.
