I hate to admit it but I am a clean freak! I like my oven racks clean and when we open the barbecue grill, I like to see a clean rack to cook my food on. I don't know about you but I found that using the automatic self cleaner in my oven takes a very long time and costs a lot of money on the electric bill.
Here is the easy way to get the racks looking brand new again with very little trouble.


And I pretty well guarantee some sparkling racks with all the burnt on food gone!

Things You Will Need

* One large dark colored plastic bag (leaf bags work great)
* straight ammonia in a bottle
* tie for the bag
* sunlight

Step 1

Remove racks from grill or oven.
Place the racks into a large dark plastic bag so that there is room to tie the bag securely closed.

Step 2

Pour approximately 2 cups of amonia into the plastic bag containing the racks.
Close the bag securely so that no liquid escapes.

Step 3

Let the bag sit in the sunlight all day(s) depending on how much grease and burnt on food needs to be removed.
Open bag carefully then hose off the rack, use rack cleaning brush if needed.
Racks should be sparkling and ready to place back on the grill or in the oven.

It is a good idea to do the racks at the same time you are cleaning the oven or the grill. ‚ It is a very easy way to preform a not so pleasant task.
