Every day, a new facebook post shows up in my feed about a miracle cleaner that will take care of the toughest kitchen cleaning tasks, so I decided to put a few to the test....I had a cookie sheet that my daughter had burned cookies on.....it looked like this to start:
One of the facebook miracle cures was to mix together baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to a paste, and let it sit for a while and the burned on grime is supposed to magically wipe away. Other people swear that Barkeepers friend, a mild cleanser, would do the same thing....so I decided to give that a shot too:
On the top half of the pan, I put a paste of Barkeepers Friend, on the bottom, I spread out the paste of baking soda and peroxide:
....and then I let it sit for 4 hours.....the result????
Well I guess that wasn't the miracle I was looking for. The only way I am going to get that pan clean is with a brillo pad. Sorry, but this was no miracle. Also, there's another one floating around where you clean your oven door glass with a mixture of Dawn dishwashing soap, vinegar and and baking soda. I tried that one too and it doesn't work. The only thing that will work is putting the oven in self cleaning mode.
