Cookie Sheet has baked on stains!

<< < (2/2)

I have a heavy-duty cookie sheet I use for the same thing.  I try not to use my oven's self-cleaning feature very often, because it uses a lot of electricity and produces fumes, but when I do use it (with the windows open) I leave the cookie sheet inside and the high heat cooks off the baked-on grease.  You probably shouldn't try this with anything but a heavy insapplesutional cookie sheet, or it will warp from the high heat, and you should definitely get off as much crud as you can first.

If the Baking Soda doesn't work then you might want to soak it in Oxi Clean for 2-6 hours or more.  I did this with some pots I bought at a yard sale.  After soaking them I took an SOS pad and scrubbed the metal around the handles.  All of the built up dirt/grease came off.  Even the baked on dirt/grease on the bottom of the larger pot.  I don't think it will hurt but definely try the baking soda first.  Actually I probably would have been able to get the built up grease/dirt off with a regular scrub pad after soaking.  It might have taken a bit more effort (elbow grease).  Let us know if either method works please. It would only be polite.  

Have you tried scrubbing it with a paste of baking soda and a good dish detergent? (Thin the detergent a little before making the paste.)  I have had a lot of success removing baked on stains with this.
I have also read (but not tried) that you can cut a lemon in half, dip it in baking soda and use it for scrubbing stains from metal.

I have a large cookie sheet that I use to catch any spills when baking pies or lasagne pans.  I have sprayed them at some point with cooking spray  ???so the spills will clean up better but the oil has baked on.  I've tried everything and nothing has helped to remove it.  This is a heavy duty restaurant style cookie sheet and I don't want to get rid of it.     Thanks ~~ lakenana
