Crusty and greasy baking sheets can be a nightmare to clean, but fear not, because I’ve got some tips and tricks that will make this chore a breeze. First, gather your supplies: dish soap, baking soda, vinegar, a sponge or scrub brush, and some hot water.
Start by sprinkling a generous amount of baking soda all over your baking sheet. Then, pour vinegar all over the baking soda, creating a fizzing reaction that helps loosen grime. Let this magical concoction sit for about 10 minutes.
After the fizzing subsides, grab your sponge or scrub brush and start scrubbing away the stubborn residue. Don’t forget to give extra attention to any burnt-on patches. Rinse your baking sheet thoroughly with hot water to remove all the baking soda and vinegar residue.
If there are still some stubborn stains lingering, don’t fret. Simply create a paste with baking soda and a little water, apply it to the troublesome spots, and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing it off. Repeat this process until your baking sheet is sparkling clean.
Lastly, give your baking sheet a final rinse with hot water and dry it thoroughly before putting it away. And there you have it—your baking sheet is now ready for your next delicious culinary adventure. Cleanliness achieved, mission accomplished!
