No need for expensive chemicals

The oven and all the cookware used in it pose additional cleaning challenges. During the cooking process, the grease manages to burn and set, and it's not easy to clean it off under running water. However, there is a way to clean a burnt baking sheet. Moreover, there are more than one.

OBOZREVATEL has collected tips from experienced housewives on how to care for this cookware. You don't need expensive chemicals to do this, just what you already have in your kitchen.

Salt

Salt can break down fat deposits when exposed to high temperatures. Thus, sprinkle it evenly on the bottom of a baking sheet and place it in a 100-degree oven for 40 minutes. The salt should turn brown during this time. After that, turn off the oven, take out the pan and let it cool. Then you can remove the salt and rinse the item under running water: the fat should be easily removed from its surface.

Mustard powder

The substances contained in mustard powder also dissolve old and burnt fat. Still, it will take some time. Therefore, this cleaning should be done in the evening. Sprinkle the baking sheet with the powder, pour boiling water over it, and leave it to soak. In the morning, drain off the soaked dirt and rinse the baking sheet with regular dishwashing detergent under running water.

Citric acid and baking soda

Citric acid in combination with baking soda works in the same way as vinegar. The dry powders do not react immediately but only when water is added to them. Thus, mix 5 tablespoons of acid and baking soda each and add 50 ml of water. This will form an effervescent substance that should be used to cover the grease stain. Leave the product on for 4 hours. Afterwards, rub the stain off with the hard side of the sponge and then wash the baking sheet in the usual way.

Baking powder

This product works on the same principle as the previous one. Wash the baking sheet from food debris and dry it. Next, sprinkle the required amount of baking powder over the entire surface or just the stains and cover with water. After an hour, the baking sheet can be gently wiped with a sponge to remove the softened dirt and washed under the tap with dishwater.
