Whoa, double post!
But I just had to share this with you.
I have a cookie sheet. (One. Tiny kitchen. Tiny cookware budget.) And I bake cookies on it, I dry produce on it… I beat it up. Over time it has collected a series of really ugly grease stains, presumably from cooking spray. I’d come to accept that this is just another piece of cooking equipment that has been diminished by its associations with me.
But then I had an idea.
I was cleaning my very sticky cookie sheet with dish soap, which was not having much of an effect, when it occurred to me that I might use… baking soda.
After all, I use it to clean my sink. I use it to scrub my skin. It’s abrasive, but not overly so… so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I doused the cookie sheet in baking soda and dish soap, and lo and behold, with a little elbow grease the stains started coming off! Even stains that have been there for weeks. I was delighted, and now have a mostly shiny and pristine cookie sheet to make things with.
Anyone else know any other excellent uses for baking soda?
