Aussie mum’s 60-second trick to clean your oven - with no scrubbing or harsh chemicals
'I have never been able to get mine so clean ever before!'
Contributor, Practical Parenting / November 02 2019
Love having a clean oven - but hate using all the harsh chemicals and non-stop scrubbing needed to get it that way?
Well we have just the thing for you.
An Aussie mum has shared her ingenious hack for cleaning her oven racks - and all you need is a bath, some washing powder and around a minute of your time!
Sharing the trick on the awesome Mums Who Clean Facebook group, the mum revealed that she simply placed a towel at the bottom of her bathtub, put the oven racks on top, filled the tub with hot water and then poured three 3 capfuls of dissolved laundry washing powder over it - a process that takes 60 seconds. She then left it overnight - and the next morning, her racks were perfectly clean.
Another mum on the group gave the method a whirl and said it gave her the best results she's ever achieved.
Sharing photos of her transformed oven, the mum wrote: ‘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! I cannot thank you enough for making this daunting task so simple 🤗!’
Revealing her technique, she wrote: ‘Place old towel in bottom of bath tub (to protect it), lay oven racks on top, turn on hot tap, dissolve 3 scoops of washing powder (I used Biozet but original poster used Homebrand) in a jug with hot water, once dissolved add to bath, continue adding hot water until oven racks are covered, leave sit overnight & then in morning wipe over with steel wool and rinse in cold water. 🤗 Done ✅!’
Another mum shared a photo of her transformed oven after using the bathtub method and described the results as ‘oven porn’!
Genius! We are SO giving this a go ...
