How to properly clean an oven rack with baking soda

Grime and grease have a nasty habit of showing up on your oven racks, which means you should clean your oven at least every three months. Luckily, baking soda gives you a natural and effective way to keep your cookware looking stunning.

To get started, all you need is baking soda and warm water which can be mixed together to give you a natural cleaning solution.

Baking soda, also known as baking soda, can be purchased relatively inexpensively at most stores and supermarkets.

Tesco, for example, sells a unit of baking soda for £1.40 while Lidl’s prices are even cheaper at 59p.

To help you get started cleaning your oven racks, just use the following set of instructions.

First, fill a tub with several inches of hot water. You want it to be just enough to cover the racks.

Next, add one to three cups of baking soda, depending on the size of the tub.

As a general rule, the more water you have, the more baking soda you will need.

After that, you can stir the mixture until the baking soda is dissolved.

Sodium bicarbonate is a great cleaning ingredient because it’s an alkaline that helps break down grease and foods that are typically acidic.

On top of that, it also softens water by raising the pH, making it ideal for cleaning and neutralizing odor-causing acids.

A combination of baking soda and vinegar can also be effective for cleaning your oven racks.

However, you should be aware that your oven will be out of service overnight for best results, and this method still requires some elbow grease.
