You just need mustard (for the acid) maple syrup (for the sugar) and salt ('cause it's grainy)
1--Pour some of each ingredient onto the sheet and rub. Not coming clean yet? Keep rubbing!
2--Rub in a circular motion, never vertical
3--Rub 15 circles, then stop and count to 10, then rub 15 more circles
4--If it's still not coming clean, hop on one foot while rubbing in circles.
5--If you've got some extra stubborn spots, start singing "Dancing Queen" by ABBA and they should come right off.
7--Place in the trash can
9--Skip all previous steps and just purchase new cookie sheets!
And that my friends, is the only real way you're ever going to get sheets that look like new!
Here are the sheets I like:NOW...I hope you're not hating me right now :) See the next page for REAL cleaning tips, and be sure to read the comments too!
So here's the REAL TIP for keeping those new sheets looking good after you use them. Sprinkle BAKING SODA on the sheets while you're scrubbing them with a brush or sponge and a lot of the baked on grease spots will disappear, so do that every now and then. Especially if you've sprayed them with cooking spray. That stuff builds up and gets baked over and over and darkens the pan. Not that that's a problem....I've eaten dozens of cookies that have come off of darkened pans :) But if you like the shiny look, that's gonna help you out.
A reader also suggested Parchment Paper for keeping baking sheets clean. I've been baking cookies on that for a couple of years now, and I love how the cookies don't stick--it makes a huge difference, give it a try!
