You see these ‘life hacks’ all the time on the internet, but rarely do they actually work. More often you’re left thinking, “why did I waste my time doing that?”

This one falls somewhere between genius and ridiculous.

TikTok user @tanyahomeinspo posted this video showing a hack to clean your oven rack. You put dish soap in an ice cube tray and freeze it. Once the cubes are frozen you just rub them along the oven rack and the muck slides off. Don’t believe me? Watch it.

This is one of those videos that’s oddly satisfying to watch; seeing the grime slide off gives me so much joy. Over a year into this pandemic, I’ll take all the joy I can get.
