Nonstick cookie sheets are meant to be a breeze to clean, since food should be easier to remove from nonstick cookware than from standard cookware. Handle nonstick cookie sheets with care when cleaning, however, to avoid damaging the coating on the sheets or warping the cookie sheets. Utilize the appropriate products on the surface of the cookie sheet to prevent any damage to the cookie sheet.
Things You'll Need
- Plastic or wooden food scraper
- Mild liquid dish soap (bleach-free)
- Non-abrasive sponge or cleaning pad
- Soft cloth
Wait for the nonstick cookie sheet to cool. Attempting to clean a cookie sheet while it is still warm could warp or otherwise damage the sheet beyond repair.
Scrape the cookie sheet with a plastic or wooden food scraper in order to remove food particles from the sheet. Metal or other harsh scrapers will permanently damage the surface of the cookie sheet.
Pour a few drops of a mild, bleach-free liquid dish soap onto a damp, non-abrasive sponge or cleaning pad.
Scrub the nonstick cookie sheet gently with the sponge or pad. Scrub the sheet until you no longer see food particles on the cookie sheet. Rinse the detergent from the sheet with clean water.
Wipe the cookie sheet with a soft cloth, or allow the cookie sheet to air dry.
