Burned messes often seem easier to toss than to scrub. Baking sheets, glass cookware, and pots and pans are not cheap to replace. You don’t have to throw them away and you don’t have to spend hours scrubbing them with these easy solutions for cleaning your cookware.
In most cases, a few simple items you already own can help you get back to cooking and baking. All you need to do is let the products do the work for you.
1. Shine up your cookie sheets
Non-stick cooking sprays and baked-on residue turn your shiny baking sheets into brown messes. No need to cover them with foil every time you bake something with this extremely easy solution. Liquid castile soap easily dissolves the brown mess and leaves your pans looking brand new. Just pour it onto the pan and gently scrub.
2. Remove brown spots from glass baking dishes
The handles of glass bakeware and the deep corners can develop brown stains over time. You can scrub and scrub when you wash, but they are almost a part of the glass. The secret to removing these stains is baking soda. Dip a toothbrush in liquid dish soap and then in baking soda. Rub over the stained areas and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Then used crumpled aluminum foil to gently scour off the softened brown spots.
3. Remove stains from Pyrex
Vintage Pyrex is not just for display, but still very useful in today’s kitchens. The milky white interior often shows stains. This old-fashioned bakeware can easily and safely be cleaned using a vintage solution. Lye removes stains without damaging the surface in as little as 20 seconds. Follow the directions carefully as lye can be quite caustic.
4. Clean up burnt-on grease from bottom of pans
That brown crust on the bottom of your pots and pans is burnt-on grease. It can be extremely stubborn and will not wash off with just dish soap. But you don’t need a harsh commercial cleaner to remove it. Simply place the pot upside in your sink. Sprinkle with salt and then gently add vinegar. Allow the ingredients to work their magic for 10 to 15 minutes then gently scrub. The brown ick will come right off.
