To clean the racks in your oven, pour 1 cup ammonia into a trash bag, add the racks and seal for 24 hours. Use a nylon scrubbie to remove loose debris. Works great!

Put the oven racks in a dark plastic trash bag. Take outside. Put a piece of old towel over one of the oven racks. Carefully pour a cup of ammonia on the towel. Close and seal the bag. Leave it for 3 or 4 hours in the sun. Empty bag and rinse oven racks with the hose. This works best on a hot sunny day.
And for anyone who hasn't done this before, just a word of warning....... when you open the bag, hold your breath & don't get your face to close or you might pass out from the ammonia fumes!
The dark bag in the sun does work the best,& you can put your burner trays in with the oven racks. But the ammonia fumes will definately clear your sinuses for you! LOL!
