Jeanine Robb commented: “If you wrap the racks in tin foil and put holes in it with a fork, then put onto an old towel in the bottom of the bath with really hot water and two to three dishwasher tablets, it works a treat.
“It keeps most of the grease and grime in the tin foil and won’t leave your bath so dirty.”
Samantha Smale agreed with the method. She said: “I did mine the other day after seeing the dishwasher tablet trick. I only did one rack to start with as I wasn’t sure it would work.
“Wrapped it in tin foil, laid it in the bath, put three dishwasher tablets in the bath with it (one inside with the rack and the other two on top go the foil) and poured hot water over it (enough to cover it all).
