This is a bit embarrassing to show you my cookie sheets.  How do they get so gross?  Oh I know exactly how they get like that.  They get used for the everything under the roof.  Chicken nuggets, french fries, moon sand, shrinky dinks.  You name it and it's probably been cooked on it.  But with the holiday season right around the corner {I know I can't believe it either} it's time to whip these babies back into shape.  This year I would like my cookies to not taste like they need a little ketchup.

I found a pin on pinterest {talk about addicting} that had a recipe to clean your pans.  It showed a dirty side and a clean side.  I must say, the clean side put me in a trance giving me flashbacks on the days when I had nice shiny pans.

So I gave it a shot.  I made a paste out of baking soda and peroxide and rubbed it over the pan.  I let it set up for about 5 minutes or so before I gave it a scrub.  And right before my eyes I could see shine. 

I might have to make cookies today.

I know it surprised me too!  Now I just need to find someplace to hide these until cookie season {smile}.


  1. I would love to know what ratio or measurements you used with your baking soda and peroxide. My pans are pretty grody and this looks like a life saver!

  2. Christina, I used 1/4 cup baking soda and keep adding the peroxide a little at a time until it makes a nice paste. Rub past over pans, let it set 5-10 minutes and scrub off. You'll be amazed. Good Luck !!

  3. I came over from iheart organizing - I'm definitely going to try this on my cookie sheets! Thanks! ;-)
