Over time, our muffin tins, cookie sheets, and baking pans will wear down. They will build up stains and look destined for the trash can. Rather than replace these trusty tools, learn how to thoroughly clean them. They will look brand new in no time!
Dirty Glass (Or Pyrex) Dishware
Tools you’ll need:
- Liquid Dish Soap
- Baking Soda
- Aluminum Foil
- Old Toothbrush
Glassware can be one of the most difficult surfaces to clean. The stains often are “baked” on, which makes them very difficult to remove. Fortunately, this tip should break down the grime and make it a lot easier to clean.
Dip a toothbrush into liquid soap, and then into baking soda. Using circular motions, use the paste to cover all the stains on the glass dishware. For large pans, you can use a cloth to apply the paste.
Let this sit for 20-30 minutes. Afterwards, crumple aluminum foil and use it to scrub at the softened stains. It should look clear and clean afterwards.
Stainless Steel Cookie Sheets
Materials you will need:
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Baking soda
- Rough sponge/pad
Cookie sheets are the go-to pan for most baking needs and recipes. Therefore, these pans can get dirty really quickly.
To clean them, sprinkle a layer of baking soda over the pan. Then, add another layer of hydrogen peroxide on top. Finally, add another layer of baking soda over everything.
Let the pan sit for 1-2 hours, then scrub using a rough sponge or pad. The stains will come off with ease.
