Good way to get grime off cookie sheets?

You know the grease and stuff that stays on cookie sheets no matter how hard you scrub? Have you found any good way to break through it?

  • To clean my stove, I sprinkle baking soda on it and then pour some vinegar on it. After it sits for a minute or so, I scrub it. Works quite well. I also do this to make my white crockpot insert nice and white again.

  • Have you tried steel wool? Or bon ami or barkeepers friend? We use that stuff to clean the stove, works like a charm.

  • When I was a teen, I scrubbed my mom's cookie sheets until they were totally clean. I thought my mom would be so happy. Nope. She was upset with me. Apparently she wanted that stuff on there as it helped with cooking. I still don't understand that.

    Supposedly, this works: put about 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl and squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then rub it on the offending dirt/stain/grease.

    I haven't tried it yet. Hmmmmm I'm gonna see if I have hydrogen peroxide.

  • I just tried the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. It did nothing. I was bummed so I tried the baking soda and vinegar. Again, nothing.

  • having stuff on the makes them seasoned
    think cast iron pans

    you can scrub them with ajax and steel wool if you dont feel like they are clean but at some point you are just never going to get them "new" clean unless you stay on top of it from day one

  • Well, after you do manage to get them clean, use parchment paper on the sheets when cooking from now on. That way the sheets stay clean and nothing sticks.

  • Oven cleaner spray for really stubborn stuff. Baking soda or Softscrub for lighter gunk.

  • They're sanitary clean. I mean, I'd still cook with them. They just look gnarly, according to my boyfriend.
