Most of us use metal baking sheets on a regular basis. Although I’m not much of a baker, I do use my baking sheets for cooking dinner multiple times a week. Because of this, they’re full of stains and burnt food residue that no amount of soaking in soapy water can seem to get rid of. If your baking sheets sound as though they fit this description too, you’ll want to try out this hack.

You probably already know about the magical powers of vinegar and baking soda when it comes to cleaning many things throughout your home. And these two ingredients are essentially all you need to restore your worn-looking baking sheets. Simply sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda all over your baking sheet. Then, pour some distilled vinegar overtop.

Once you’ve poured on the vinegar, let the baking sheet soak for about 30 minutes. When the time’s up, spray some hot water onto the pan and use a scrub brush to scrub off the residue. Afterwards, wash with dish soap and warm water as you normally would. Dry the baking sheet, and you’re good to go!
