It's so easy to remove baked on grease from your cookware. I HATE seeing this buildup, but it's so SIMPLE to remove. Read on to see how!
How to Remove Baked on Grease from Cookware
As I've been cleaning out my cupboards, I've found a ton of good glass bakeware that's been stained by cooking spray when baking.
I've done some research on how to remove baked on grease stains, and there are a LOT of tips out there. I tried out a few of them, and found one that I really like so wanted to share with you!
Here are a few ways to remove baked on grease:
1. Vinegar, Baking Soda, Sea Salt and Brillo Pads
Sprinkle your pans with a large amount of sea salt and baking soda then spray the mixture with vinegar. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then scrub with Brillo pads.
Full disclosure – This solution didn't do ANYTHING to remove the grease built up on my bakeware. Maybe if your stains are caused by something other than cooking spray this could work, but it didn't make any change in my bakeware.
2. Laundry Detergent
Fill your sink with hot water and add about 3/4 cup of Laundry Detergent. You'll then submerge your pans that have baked on grease and let sit overnight.
I didn't test this one out – simply because I didn't want the sink to be used a whole night for this! You could also use a bucket or a washing sink if you have one.
3. Oven Cleaner, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, and Dawn Dish Soap
I saw this idea and thought it seemed like the most likely to work, and so I gave it a try! This Oven Cleaner, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, and Dawn Dish Soap combo worked perfectly to remove my stains on my bakeware. Dawn Powerwash is fantastic for this – but you can use regular dish soap too.
I first sprayed oven cleaner all over the cookware and let it sit for an hour. I then scrubbed off the oven cleaner (using a dry cloth at first, but it really started going well when I used a Mr. Clean Magic eraser.).
After that, I washed the cookware in hot water and Dawn Dish Soap, and then threw it in the dishwasher for a cycle to make sure all of the oven cleaner was removed. If you don't have a dishwasher, just scrub it really well and rinse thoroughly.
