Hi, this is Ann Myrick and I'm going to show you how to clean the racks of your oven. Two ways you can do it - you can either if it fits in your dishwasher, you can take everything out and put your racks in your dishwasher and wash them like that, or you could just use elbow grease and do it by hand. Today I'm just going to show you how to do it by hand. So you take a sponge and I have a little scrubber, and I have some hot soapy water here, so I'm just going to take it, it will get a little messy because the racks are very - they're too big for the sink. But you just want to all the burned areas, greasy areas, you want to just give it a really good scrub and it comes right off, sometimes you can soak it, and then it will make the grease in the burned areas a little bit soft and then it will come off even easier. So now you'll rinse it with hot water and you want to be sure that you get the soap off really well or it would probably in the oven, if it got hot it would smoke. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how you clean your oven racks.
