Hi I'm Leslie Reichert and I'm the cleaning coach. You can visit my website at to see more tips and tricks on how to green your cleaning. Today what we're going to work on is how to take and clean one of your baking pans. Now what I'm going to do is something that I'm going to get this started but you're going to let this sit overnight. It's very simple. We're going to actually take some baking soda and we're going to put it and sprinkle it in the pan, just in the bottom of the pan and you can do this actually in your oven to clean your oven as well. It's the same tip. So you take that and then what you're going to do is you're going to spray it with vinegar. Now watch, see how it's foaming up, what it's doing it's combining the baking soda which if you think about it is a natural lifter, it's going to lift the dirt up off the pan with an acid. The vinegar is a natural acid so the two things working together are going to work on the buildup of your pan and see it bubbling and fizzing there? Now the neat thing is you can leave this overnight if you want or if you want to get started and scrub it now like me, I always like to get started, you start to scrub it with that combo and then you can sprinkle a little more baking soda and pour a little more vinegar in there and let it sit overnight and what will happen is those two things working together are going to lift all the stains and the buildup off of the pan. What you can do too is if it's been sitting overnight and it starts to look a little dry, just keep spritzing it with a little more vinegar and you'll see again it just will start to foam up even more. So just leave it sit on the countertop, put it even in the oven, just let it sit, don't turn the oven on, just let it sit inside there and then in the morning it will just wipe right away. So that's our tip for today, how to clean your baking pan with just vinegar and baking soda and I wish you happy cleaning. This is Leslie Reichert, the cleaning coach.
