Step 4: Soak and Sit

Now, fill the tub or basin with hot water, ensuring that the rack is fully submerged. Leave it to soak for 10 minutes (or longer). You'll notice some of the built-up food residue start to melt away.

Step 5: Scrub

Remove the racks from the water, then scrub off the softened gunk and grime. If extra cleaning power is needed, coat with more vinegar and baking soda before scrubbing.
