To clean a baking sheet or pan, pour boiling water over it then let it soak in the sink. After the hardened grease has loosened up a little bit, start scrubbing with a stainless steel scrubber (make sure it’s the non-soaped kind). If the stains are still hard to remove, try sprinkling a little baking soda over them and start scrubbing again. You’ll get a clean pan in no time.
