Or to add to Mary T's tip....dont even take the racks out of the oven. Just put a bowl of amonia into the oven overnight (or as long as possible). Make sure you have good ventilation though!! Remove bowl of amonia and proceed with wipe down. Grab a bunch of old newsprint or what have you and wipe out the gunk and throw away. You can remove the racks now if you like...and just rinse them off in the shower (plug drain with hair catcher to get debry). If you want to really ensure cleaned out when done use a disposable cloth or sponge and wipe inside of oven with warm/hot water. Voila. Done. All without effort or scrubbing. Trust me...if this can work in a stove with a dead and burnt rat in it then it can handle a regularly used oven easily!

Yes - We did ours with a large leaf bag, outside - using gloves to save your hands, we sprayed oven cleaner in the bag on the racks, close up the bag, for a few hours, and take the garden hose and clean it off. Wow, just like new. roll up bag, we put in another bag and toss it in the garbage. We have electric so the oven was being cleaned by itself. Years ago, living in an apartment, we did clean the racks in the tub. Also at times, the venetian blinds we cleaned in the tub, came out like new. But they where metal in those days!! Tide did he works, and your tub was easy to wash up.
