How do I get rid of the stickiness?

Esther Baca BerglingBetty DaleDebi53


I have several of these that I have had in my cabinets for many years. They are sticky and slightly discolored. How do I easily clean them? I don’t have a dishwasher.

    I had several sticky jello molds from my grandma. The stickiness comes from the gas from the stove. I put hit water in a sink with Dawn dish liquid and soaked them for about 1/2 hour. Then, just wash them. Hth!

    It is hard to get that grimy stickiness off these kind of shelves. Try some Dawn dishsoap in hot water in the sink. Scrub with a handheld brush. Rinse. Let dry. I think over time these get sticky because the the plastic is starting to deteriorate. They are just a victim of great kitchen grime. Once they start to discolor there is not much you can do except buy new.

  • Soak in a tub of water, vinegar and dish soap. Be generous with the vinegar.

    I'd rinse it in Dawn dish detergent then if you have a dishwasher put it in there to get clean.

  • I too stick in my dishwasher, had a set for maybe 20 years.

  • Tsp buy it follow directions dish wash with high heaT IF POSSIBLE

  • Make a strong solution of Spic and Span and submerge the rack. Let set overnight. Scrub/rub with a rag, rinse, let dry and put back into your cabinet. I love Spic and Span.

    Home Depot carries a product called Spray Nine. I use it to clean anything that is grease coated--especially for grimy rental stoves and microwaves. I haven't found any kind of grease that this won't clean. Put the racks in a tub. Spray liberally with Spry Nine. Let it sit for 30 minutes or so. Use a soft brush or a cloth and hot soapy water to remove the grease. Then rinse and dry.
