You’ve been using washing-up liquid wrong – trick to remove stubborn oven tray grime

Scrubbing stubborn grime from dirty baking trays is the last thing anyone wants to do after slaving over a hot oven.

But now a woman has shared a handy hack that will speed up the process – and all you need is washing-up liquid.

NHS worker Tanya regularly shares cleaning tips, home interior inspiration and shopping hauls on her TikTok, where she’s known as @tanyahomeinspo.

But it’s one of the most recent tutorials on her “frozen washing up liquid hack” that’s got people talking.

In a clip that has been viewed more than 8,000 times, Tanya demonstrates how she rids her dirty pans using the detergent – but not as we know it.

She swears by the trick

Instead of dousing a sponge in the liquid and washing the tray as we usually would, she demonstrates filling an ice cube tray with Fairy liquid.

She pops the tray into the freezer and waits until it’s completely solid.

Then, she takes one of the cubes and rubs it against the dirt – and it “just slides right off.”

In no time at all, the tray looks as good as new.
