Make your pans SHINE!!! - 1 simple ingredient

I shined my pans!!!


Want to know how I did it?

With this


However I was running a little low. 


But even with that itty bitty amount I was still able to shine one corner. 



Just dump it on and start scrubbing. 
It did take quite a bit of scrubbing but I think it was worth it. 
Also, if you have not purchased Dr. Bronner's soap before, it is fairly expensive. 
(my daughter has allergies to soap and this is the only brand that seems to help)
This bottle cost $10. However, if you are only using it to shine your pans, a little goes a long way.

  1. Does it have to be the one with tea tree?

    1. I believe the tea tree has something to do with it. I have not tried any other kind. If you do use another kind let me know how it works.

    2. Tea tree oil has natural chemicals in it called terpenes (turpentine) and will dissolve grease,gum, adhesive, etc. It can damage soft plastic finishes such as doors on your microwave, etc.I sell the NOW brand in my store and it is inexpensive.

    3. Anonymous, May I ask is the *Now* brand just something you can get a hold of or can it be found elsewhere?
      Do you have a site I an look at to see it?
      Thanks.

    5. I also heard soaking these in vinegar may remove some of the stains.
      I switched to Dr. Woods pure castile soap instead of Dr. Bronner's. It is very similar, but half the cost from vitacost.com As of this post it is $6.97 for a 32oz bottle!!! I purchase lots of organic foods from them too for my little guys, since my local stores are so expensive.
      You can get $10 off your first purchase with a friend referral. If you don't have one, you can use mine: http://www.vitacost.com/Referee?wlsrc=rsReferral&ReferralCode=2234027

    8. Take a plastic bag, add one cup of ammonia, slip in the pan. Make sure pan get wet all over. Leave closed for a while. This makes it very easy to get rid of any baked on stains. No hard scrubbing. I do this outside and layer several pans at once.

    11. Plain, inexpensive ammonia works the best. It is just hard to find a bag big enough for a whole sheet pan. When you do, soak your pan for at least 24 hours. Then the grime will easily scrub off. It works fantastic on stove burners.

    19. Giant Ziploc bags (they are blue, sized L, XL and XXL) work very well and are reusable for that purpose. I use them for cleaning sheet pans. I LOVE them for soaking my oven racks overnight with some ammonia in the bags. Baked on residue literally rinses away.

  13. most all of my pans look quite very good. I think the trick is to compleatly and carefully clean them after each use. Mine are a bit scratchy but all clean all over. I think you can over do this. one of my square cake pans have a few small holes up near the rim I have a few thin spots that you can see light though. but when tarnished with baked on stuff.. the best thing to do is to dow what it takes to get them clean and shiny..

    1. Hi Kim,

      What's the/ your ratio for watering it down? I have a big bottle of the lavendar but it clogs up the pump. Maybe watering it down would reduce this? The clog comes out easily when i pump it, but then the force often makes it shoot out rather hard, and i usually end up loosing some of the soap on the shower floor. It's a little too expensive to loose a little with just about every pump! I try to cup my hand around it, but still shoots out too fast!

    1. you can make your own dishwashing soap:
      1 cup of Washing soap(like arm and hammer)
      1 cup of Borax
      1/2 cup of salt (Kosher works best but Iodized with work too)
      4 packets of Lemon Aid Kool Aid

      Mix together in a large bowl, eliminating the clumps and store in an air tight container, like a mason jar.
      1 tablespoon for each load
      2 tablespoons if really dirty...

    1. I like the seasoning on my pans. It means they're used and used a lot by a great cook. It prevents sticking just like cast iron. I used to work for a major pizza chain and they would pre-season all the pizza pans just like cast iron pots trying to obtain that golden natural nonstick surface.

      Delete
    2. Ditto on the seasoning. All that golden baked on stuff is lecithin, one of the things that adds non-stick properties to non-stick spray. I worked hard to get a baked on layer of lecithin (using straight lecithin) onto my loaf pans. They're non-stick that won't ever fail.

    1. Sounds like it's the scotch brite pads and SOS doing most of the work here, not the soap or the tea tree oil. :\ Bon Ami (which I think is similar to BKF) works great, particularly on things you don't want scratched. Haven't tried it on my pans yet as they're fairly new and not quite icky yet. My mother swore by Bon Ami for cleaning her "vintage" corning ware (the kind they don't sell anymore that could go on the stove & not just in the oven).

  41. If it is the Tea Tree Oil that does it, can't you just buy a bottle of 100% Tea Tree Oil at a health food store (inexpensive) and add a few drops to your dish or cleaning water?

    2. I tried it with just the tea tree oil. I can see some color coming off onto the paper towel, but a small bottle of tea tree oil is $10 (good quality that I bought to use for OCM and other things), so I don't think it would be worth the money just to have clean pans. I wash them and know they're "clean". ;)

      Delete
  42. it's the turpentine in the tea tree oil that does it, you can just get turpentine from the paint department at a hardware store. Use cautiously, it stinks and is flammable I think, and you need to FOLLOW ALL PRECAUTIONS listed on it. If you just want a little just to try it, check in the artist department at a craft store for a small bottle. (It will also kill fungus that cause heel cracks, and my grandma used it for various health things and cleaning -- household cleaner pine oil has turpentine in it.) Always used caution around flame, keep away from children, pets and stupid people, etc.. Never use around gas water heaters, gas dryers, furnaces, etc., or anything with an open flame. I would take it outside and scrub out there. Make sure you wash the pans afterwards like you regularly do.

  61. I agree with Mike. I use baking soda. In a pinch I only had baking powder and that worked too. I just wet the area with warm water and then sprinkle baking soda/powder and let it foam up keep wetting it every 10-15 minutes with a spray bottle filled with hot faucet water. In an hour or so you'll be able to scrape off the whole mess easily.
    Baking soda/powder is the only thing that works for my glass cooktop. Nothing else gets it as clean with as little effort.
    And for soap allergies, please also look at charlie's soap. Especially the powder version. Its very good for laundry, general cleaning and also throwing into the dishwasher. And it is very hypoallergenic. And relatively inexpensive.

    ReplyDelete
  64. No matter what you use if you have dark baked on stains you will have to scrub rinse repeat it all over again. I use several different methods to remove these stains. A paste of Cream of tarter made with a bit of water , let set for awhile scrub and rinse . Another method is to make a paste of baking soda and peroxide and let set for awhile scrub and rinse . I used the bonner soap and i still have to scrub and rinse . It all doesn't come off , it just looks alot better than it did when I started. I have even used warm vinegar with a bit of dawn dish soap . Of course the big thing here is SOS Pad, ELBOW GREASE AND LOTS OF IT!. So if your not willing to go to the distance You have a choice, toss the pan out or continue using the dirty looking pan. hmm Maybe I will try colgate tooth paste next . I forgot I have also tried Bar Keepers Friend and the Magic Erasers. So plan on using Elbow Grease because there is no magic wand to make the black stains go away. Other than make sure you wash the pan VERY well after each use and DO Not For Get the Corners need extra attention.

  74. Does Tea Tree work with all cookware materials? Eg is it a good idea on non-stick cookware?

  75. Use a garbage bag when using the ammonia and do it outside or in the garage but close it so an animal cannot lick its contents....or a child. Do not scrub nonstick surfaces as they will come off as you scrub. Soak your Clean your sheets as soon as you use them. If something does harden on them put Dawn dish soap or dishwasher powder soap and hot water and let it soak. Then clean it gently with a soft green not scratchy cleaner cloth.

  76. Try a baking soda and peroxide paste. It does a great job and not much scrubbing. Put baking soda in a small container. Add enough peroxide to make a paste, much like toothpaste. Smooth onto the pan. Let it dry. Scrub it off and presto, your pan is just like new.

  77. Dr Bronners Castile soap Tea Tree is not the same as pure 100% tea tree oil. NOW tea tree oils is just that OIL nothing else in it.

  78. Or you can soak the pan with hot water mixed with Dawn dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. No scrubbing needed.

  79. I would suggest after scrubbing them clean I've noticed that if you grease your pans with Coconut oil instead of Pam or all the other stuff, the coconut oil doesn't leave that sticky residue. I use it for my cakes and breads for the most part.
