HOW TO CLEAN COOKIE SHEETS
What You Need
The joy of perfecting the sheet pan dinner - baking chicken and roasting vegetables all on one baking pan to avoid a dirty dish pile-up. But the self-satisfaction comes to a screeching halt when you go to scoop the goodies from your pan onto your serving dish only to find burnt-on crumbs, charred chunks of who-knows-what, and stains left behind.
You'll rarely come across a baking sheet in someone's kitchen that isn't covered in a variety of greasy brown spots. A standard cleaning with dish soap and warm water usually isn't the best way to clean cookie sheets. Even the familiar baking soda and vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, and cream of tartar mixtures can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour (and a lot of elbow grease) to start removing gunk.
Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner cleans baking sheets by breaking down grease without caustic or abrasive chemicals. The formula is clean rinsing so it won't leave behind residue that can linger long after you've finished cleaning.
Allow your cookie sheet to cool completely before cleaning. These directions are intended to help remove recent spots and stains to avoid permanent discoloration.
TIP: Use a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper each time you bake to prevent future stains.
