How To Clean Your Old Cookie Sheet
When I moved into my Jersey City apartment my Grandma gave me some of her cookie sheets as a gift. Two years and many batches of cookies later these sheets have seen better days! I decided I should share my trick to get them looking brand new! (almost) Here's how I cleaned the burnt food and residue off the pan.
Step 1. First I made my cleaning mixture that consists of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. I mix these two together until they are a paste like consistency.
Step 2. Next, I spread the mixture over the entire sheet. Make sure not to use a heavy hand otherwise it will never dry.
Step 3. After letting it dry for about 3 hours I took a sponge and wiped it all off, scrubbing the really dirty parts.
After you give it a good rinse off, it should be looking good as new!
Next, learn how to clean a burnt pot.
I hope this post finds you before you begin your cookie baking or maybe even after to keep those sheets fresh and clean for years to come! Happy Holidays :)

This is an awesome tip, thank you. I could actually see when baked-on, burned food was lifted-- it was visible staining the top of the peroxide/soda mixture, and in some cases where the spatter was small, could see the entire spot lifted to the top. Much appreciated share!
Does this really work?
My daughter has some nice heavy duty pots and pans. He RV husband has burned popcorn in 2 of them that we have scrubed and scrubed but it will not come off. What advise do you have for getting off?
What about cleaning slightly enameled stove top iron grills of grease and rust ?
