I am going to start a little series called “Spring Cleaning” (original huh?) with some of my favorite cleaning tips I’ve picked up along the way… First up? How to de-gunk your baking sheets.
I always forget to line my baking sheet with foil, thus eliminating the need to clean it 99% of the time. So if you are like me, your cooking sheets may be a little grimy if you’ve had them awhile…
Have no fear! In a few easy steps you can have your sheets (almost) like new!
- Place gunky baking sheet in sink.
- Top with a Bounce dryer sheet and fill with warm water.
- Let soak overnight.
- Remove dryer sheet and wipe clean with a sponge.
- Rinse well.
*Note: You don’t want your sheets looking like how they did when you bought them… a well seasoned baking sheet is important, but that being said chunks of food (for lack of a better phrase), or stubborn stains can be off putting, so this method helps with getting rid of some surface stains without removing the yummy seasoning you have worked hard to create!
